Quote:
Johnny English is a 2003 British action comedy film parodying the James Bond secret agent genre. It stars Rowan Atkinson (who, two decades earlier, appeared in an unofficial James Bond film - Never Say Never Again) as the incompetent titular British spy, with John Malkovich, Natalie Imbruglia, Tim Pigott-Smith and Ben Miller in supporting roles. The screenplay was written by Bond writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, with William Davies, and the film was directed by Peter Howitt. The film has been recognised by its tagline, He knows no fear, he knows no danger, he knows nothing. The movie grossed a total of $160 million worldwide. A sequel will be released in October 2011.

Mildly amusing movie. Not really recommended but not bad if you are looking for inoffensive silliness for a group of friends or family.

I found this film HILARIOUS.

Seriously, with its PG rating and all, I expected nothing really, but it's sooo funny.

Lorna Campbell: You obviously haven't met our host, Monsieur Savage.
Johnny English: No, thank God! You know, I think I'd rather have my bottom impaled on a giant cactus than exchange pleasantries with that jumped-up Frenchman. As far as I'm concerned, the only thing the French should be allowed to host is an invasion.

B+

Johnny English: I've Bean Surprised!


Rowan Atkinson's best movie! (Of course, his other one, Bean sucked.)

It was vastly better than I expected and had a great story and a really cool car chase.


5 out of 5.


{Nonetheless, I agree with what some reviewers have said - if you don't like Rowan Atkinson, you probably won't enjoy it - and it is primarily a kid's movie...}

Eh, its ok, a few chuckles and watchable mainly because of Atkinson and Malkovich was amusing. Other than that mostly tired jokes, but some were good.

Where's the sequel?

I'd like to see a whole Johnny English franchise develop - - skipping US distribution naturally...
