Brothers Grimsby: In Depraved Sacha Baron Cohen Movie, Donald Trump Gets AIDS

By Debbie Schlussel


In “The Brothers Grimsby,” written by and starring Sacha Baron Cohen, Donald Trump gets AIDS. (Too bad Cohen doesn’t die of cancer.) And, sadly, that outrageous political BS is the least disgusting thing about this absolutely sickening, completely stupid, totally unfunny movie.

As I noted on Friday, this movie was not screened for critics, and I should have taken the hint. It also was not represented by any of the big public relations firms that usually promote studios and their movies locally in various cities (including Detroit). That should have been a bigger hint for me. But I went to see the movie on Friday to review it for you. Big mistake. To say I was repulsed is the understatement of the year. Recently, Cohen and his wife, Isla Fisher (who also stars in the movie), donated $1 million to the Jew-hating, America-hating Syrian Muslim refugees (via the anti-Israel Save The Children and the equally anti-Israel International Rescue Committee). If only ISIS were forced to watch this film and then Cohen was sent via parachute to the middle of ISIS-controlled territory. It would be poetic justice. After seeing this, I hate the guy that much. This is nothing like previous Cohen movies, such as “Borat” (read my review)–which condescendingly mocked the goodness of White, Christian, Jewish, and patriotic Americans–or “Bruno” (read my review). This makes those look like masterpieces.

If scenes of men inside the vaginal canal of an elephant, while male elephants have sex with the female elephant and ejaculate on the men inside, is your thing, then you’re a warped sicko . . . and this is your movie. For the rest of us, hopefully sanity prevails. I dare any idiot rabbi that lets this scumbag, Sacha Baron Cohen, pray in his synagogue to see this movie. Cohen should be excommunicated. He’s an absolute scumbag. And a really, really sick guy, since he dreamed up the very repulsive, disgusting scenes that make up this so-called movie. It’s just gross. And, by the way, this is supposed to be a comedy. I didn’t laugh once.

The story: Cohen and his brother (Mark Strong, who is much better than appearing in this vile, depraved crap) are separated as kids. His brother is raised in a wealthy, cultured family and becomes a secret agent for MI6, chasing and foiling terrorists. Cohen is a lowlife loser idiot on welfare in working-class London with eleven (or so) kids. They are reunited when Cohen learns of his brother’s existence and screws up a targeted assassination of a terrorist. Then, together, they go on exploits around the world, including in South Africa, where Strong is still trying to foil the terrorists and also trying to elude the British government, which wants to take him down for being a rogue agent.

Among the many depraved, disgusting scenes, is the elephant sex scene. But that’s not the only one, and I feel dirty even describing these other ones. They’re not just filthy, they’re just sickening. And so is the guy who thought them up and decided to put them on film. Cohen sticks his face in hot wax and then falls on a woman’s vagina, resulting in pubic hair surrounding his mouth. Yes, classy. Then, there’s the scene of the fat-laden naked crotch of Cohen’s wife, the calorically-gifted Rebel Wilson. Uggh. There is also the scene where he is about to have sex with the morbidly obese Gabourey Sidibe and is wearing a mini-camera, so her pubic hair is broadcast to the MI6 in close-up. Unsee, unsee, unsee! And, of course, there is that scene in which Strong is struck in one of his testicles by a poisonous dart and forces his brother, Cohen, to suck it out, something we are shown in close-up complete with testicles and pubic hair. Toward the end of the movie, Cohen and Strong foil a terrorist attack at a soccer game in South Africa, by inserting the tips of missiles up their rear ends, and viewers are shown the result when they are in the hospital afterward. I threw up in my mouth during this entire warped piece of crap on the big screen.

At the terrorist attack, blood with the HIV virus is accidentally shot into Donald Trump’s mouth and we’re informed he has contracted AIDS. If only that would happen to Sacha Baron Cohen instead, the world would be a lot better off. You think he’d ever make a movie in which Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, or Bernie Sanders got AIDS? Think again. (It’s stuff like this that brings me over to Trump’s side more and more. If Hollywood hates him, that can’t be bad.) This guy Cohen is a total schmuck. Maybe he won’t get his now, but some day, he’ll rot in hell. Bet on it.

Yes, this is the absolutely repellent garbage that is greenlit by Hollywood these days. And that creep, Cohen, is laughing all the way to the bank. Thanks, Sony Pictures. You really know Gitmo torture material when you see it.

Yup, nothing funny about it.

Cohen would never joke about Muslims the way he jokes about Trump.

And this guy is supposed to be a descendant of the priestly family!

Jews are supposed to be the smartest people in the world and the only thing that’s true about his film is that he’s a low life loser.

People who decry Trump’s language are themselves hypocrites when they watch low-rent garbage like “The Brothers Grimsby.”

Our culture deserves far better. Debbie, thanks for describing this dreck at length so the rest of us can avoid it – and the depraved mind that produced it.

According to various journalists, Cohen, a Brit, is an orthodox Jew. In fact, he is descended from a long line of rabbis.

P: Yeah, I’ve heard the “Orthodox” claim, but yet he checks e-mails on the Sabbath. I don’t buy it. Regardless of what he is or from whom he descends, he himself is a piece of crap. And that’s all that matters. Great people sometimes come from dirt. And dirty people sometimes come from greatness. DS

Sorry you had to sit through that.

“FOUR ISIS BEHEADINGS PLUS.” Plus what? Is something else missing?

Barry Popik on March 14, 2016 at 12:43 am

Well, we know that Cohen has a fixation genitalia and the anal regions. This film sounds more like a psychotic episode than an actual movie.

Also, the level of animosity towards Trump from so many quarters is actually causing me to feel empathy for him. The Left must feel extremely threatened by the guy, since McCain and Romney really never experienced this level of vitriol during their respective campaigns.

The only SBC movie I’ve seen that he personally wrote and directed was Borat. Although some of the outrageousness of Borat was funny, there was one extended scene involving close nude physical contact of SBC (as Borat) with another male that wasn’t funny at all. Rather, it seemed to me to be merely a excuse for SBC to work out his own repressed homosexuality on the screen as a form of self-indulgent self-therapy.

This Brothers Grimsby movie sounds like it includes several scenes of SBC acting out his own repressed homosexuality. However, it’s so overt and direct, that it isn’t funny. But I don’t think that SBC made the movie with the idea that people will be drawn to it for the laughs (which are probably nonexistent, as Debbie has described in her review). Rather, the people who will pay to see this movie will be doing so specifically because it’s utterly gross and disgusting. The way a horror movie challenges you to be brave to persevere through it, this movie sounds like it challenges you to be able to face the screen regardless of the revolting images and scenes that flash across.

To my knowledge, the first movie to draw an audience based on scenes designed to “gross you out” was John Waters’ 1972 film “Pink Flamingos.” This movie was made on $10,000 budget, that even taking inflation into account was low-low-budget. But at least Waters did not pretend to be doing something other than what he was actually doing. Waters’ movie had the tagline “An exercise in poor taste.” Pink Flamingos was notorious in its day for its outrageousness, nudity, profanity, and scatology. And people paid money to see it to be able to say they sat through it even though it was filled with gross and disgusting scenes.

SBC’s new movie sounds like he’s trying to elevate Pink Flamingos into high art by plunging deeper into depravity than Waters dared do. In the end, his movie sounds like a lot fantasies of a repressed homosexual disguised in a Bondian plot and concealed with Bondian action sequences.

SBC would be better served by spending a few years with a very good psychotherapist. Needless to say, I won’t be seeing this movie, unless, by chance, someone offers to pay me $200 for my pains.

What the hell did you just describe, sounds like a disaster and disgisting. I can deal with goofball sillness but this sounds putrid. He should have stayed Ali G. Booyaka.

MrBigBrain on March 14, 2016 at 2:34 am

I think I’ll put this on my “must-miss-list.” This sounds like something I DON’T want to see.

“If Hollywood hates him, that can’t be bad.”

Uhhhhhhhh, . . .

in the immortal words of Marv Albert, . . .


I know I have a tendency to repeat myself, but some things are worth repeating.

Porky Pig with a couple beers in him before 8:30 a.m. every day would be a better president than we have now, SOOOOOO . . .

enter The Trump?

As for Sacha Baron Cohen, he does seem to be working out SOMETHING with his public displays of what seem to be an admittance to possible homo or bisexuality. Who cares? But the lengths he goes to in being irreverent make irreverence pale by comparison.

He also seems to be deliberately conjuring up an effeminate air when posing for cameras, either in movie posters or publicity photos.

He reminds me of a ten year old who sees classmates and friends getting laughs all over the place by being silly and occasionally somewhat gross. The said ten year old then tries to be cooler than they, and he goes so far over the top in trying to be more like them, that he fails miserably at everything except making people understand what a sick puppy he really is.

I don’t know much about Sacha Baron Cohen, and after Debbie’s review, . . .

I will take a Cruz anywhere to avoid knowing any more.

    If Cohen’sattempting to “work out” his sexual issues, I’d suggest he do it privately with the help of his psychiatrist. His problems don’t belong on the screen.

    Raymond in DC on March 15, 2016 at 1:28 pm

He’s a horrible individual and as a Brit I’d like to apologise for him!

From Jack Benny and Fred Allen to this??!?!

Little Al on March 14, 2016 at 8:50 am

A while back, SBC bowed out of a proposed biopic of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury; surviving member Brian May thought his presence would have been a “distraction.” Cohen, naturally, wanted to focus more on the depraved aspects of Mercury’s personality (the euphemism used: “a gritty R-rated tell-all”). Apparently, though, there appears to be some justice in this world, as I’ve read somewhere “The Brothers Grimsby” is a big el floppo at the box office. Giving sort of new meaning to those initials.

But yeah, both Benny and Allen (who were dear friends in real life, their radio “feuds” notwithstanding) would be spinning in their graves over such excrement as this.

And I suspect the “Four Isis Beheadings Plus” is because it exceeds the four-____ limit of Debbie’s ratings system. As it deserves to be placed.

My wife and I tried to watch one of his other movies once. We lasted for 5 minutes before we shut it off. Gross and disgusting passes for humor these days.

Hillel on March 14, 2016 at 9:30 am

Unfortunately the piece of dreck Debbie describes is very much like most everything else that comes out of Hollywood but more so.After attacking religion, morality, patriotism,manners and civility what has the radical left given to the county. Sacha, Baron, Cohen.

Jerry G on March 14, 2016 at 10:31 am


It’s one thing that such garbage was green-lighted. It’s another that the studio went ahead with a theatrical release.

Red Ryder on March 14, 2016 at 10:33 am

Ha Ha Ha Donald Trump gets AIDS. Now that’s very funny (sarcasm off)! Say what you want about the man but I wouldn’t wish that on him or anyone. Seriously though I tried watching Borat with this idiot Cohen and I’m still trying to get that 10 minutes of my life back. I couldn’t watch the whole movie and I like movies so that’s saying something. You’re right Debbie Hollyweird leftwing D-bags like Cohen would never (they say never say never, well I’m saying NEVER) would make a movie with Killary, The Old Castro Loving Commie, or Alfred E. O’Neumann getting a cold much less AIDS. If you have an R after your name then you’re fair game. Expect the Trump rally protestors to flock to this movie faster than Candy Crowley, Rebel Wilson and Gabourey Sidibe going to the nearest buffet restaurant. Oh and for your rating Debbie on this gross dreck how about the four ISIS beheadings plus four toilets because that’s where this stink pile of a movie belongs.

Ken B on March 14, 2016 at 12:01 pm

Cohen’s whole schtick is shocking bad taste and grossness. To hold his fans’ interest, he has to escalate the disgustingness with every movie. The abysmal box office shows he has hit a wall and is losing interest.

john on March 14, 2016 at 12:28 pm

Knowing who wrote the movie, I can’t understand why anyone would watch this trash. I saw his first movie. It was the only time I seriously considered asking the management for a refund. I didn’t but I was considering it. At the time it was the worst movie I’ve ever seen.

jerry d on March 14, 2016 at 1:02 pm

Hi Dear Debbie Thanks For sharing and God Bless Debbie!

TIRDAD GHARIB on March 14, 2016 at 1:46 pm

I never like Sacha Baron Cohen. He’s a disgusting freak who is a self-hater and a Muslim lover. He is not funny and I hope Trump punches him out if he ever sees him in person.
