After pissing off Kazakhstan with 'Borat', Sacha Baron Cohen is back on home turf with his latest comedy ‘Grimsby’ and a new character – football lout Nobby, who’s got a Liam Gallagher haircut, nine kids (one called Skeletor) and misspelt tattoos.

But how does he do with a straight-up gross-out comedy? Read our review.
