'The Brothers Grimsby' Review

I used to have such faith in Sacha Baron Cohen. But a look on IMDb reveals that Borat was 10 years ago, with very little to show for it since. His latest film, The Brothers Grimsby, has a funny idea: What if Baron Cohen's English doofus was brothers with an elite MI6 assassin (Mark Strong)? The inspiration sorta ends there, though. I reviewed this wan comedy for The New Republic.
