review by
Mike Haberfelner

Not too long, Grimsby, England, UK was a booming city and the heart of the fishing industry - but things went downhill due to several factors, new fishing restrictions, changing tastes and monopolisation among them. Still, Curly (James Burrows) is happy to be a trawlerman, and so is his best friend Budgie (Sam Glen) - and they especially enjoy their weekends when they arrive back ashore and have three days to blow their wages, making them feel like "three day millionaires". But this weekend, things are different as they learn that Barr (Colm Meaney), boss of the last big Grimsby fishing company (and their boss) has decided to sell his whole company, especially though the land it's on, to a group of land developers, who want to gentrify the area and get rid of the slowly failing fishing industry altogethe - so from one day to the next Curly and Budgie see their future destroyed. Enter Mr. Graham (Jonas Armstrong), one of Barr's office employees, who just happens to know where Barr keeps his not quite legal cash, and knows how to get to it, which involves a minutely planned heist pulled off by Curly, Budgie and their druggie friend Codge (Michael Kinsey), with Graham pulling the strings from afar. And the plan is really next to perfect - so perfect that it goes perfectly wrong before long ...


A highly entertaining heist movie, and one that focusses on the comic rather than the action side of the story, but without ever becoming moronic and always open to let some drama or some social commentary slip in, and with enough suspense in all the right moments, thanks to a well-structured and well-paced script and a light-footed enough directorial effort. And an uniformly strong cast with a pretty hilarious Colm Meaney as the sort-of villain of the piece really make this fun to watch as well.
