Directed by Peter Howitt (Anti-Trust, Laws of Attraction, Sliding Doors) made a entertaining comedy spoof that is a Cross from movies like Austin Powers Trilogy, The Naked Gun Trilogy and the James Bond Series. Atkinson is a delight and Malkovich is at his campest role to date. The film's plot is surprisingly good but you wish, there's more laughs at times. Atkinson's fans won't be disapointed.
This was a Box Office Disapointment in the U.S. but in Overseas did more than Four Times Better than the U.S. Box Office. DVD has an sharp anamorphic Widescreen (1.85:1) transfer and an good-Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. DVD Extras are Deleted Scenes, Behind the Scenes feautrette and more. Kids will probably enjoy this movie than Adults expect fans of Atkinson's.
Written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade & William Davies. Writers:Purvis and Wade wrote together 007 films:The World is not Enough and Die Another Day. Davies wrote:Twins, Stop! or My Mom Will Shoot and Ghost in the Machine. Grade:B+.
The character is intended to be unintentionally funny, but Atkinson does best as Mr. Bean however, and this film could have just as easily been named "Bean. Mr. Bean".
Rating: 3/5. Great for a fun night at home.
Director Peter Howit has created a movie with the all hilarious actor also known as "Mr. Bean"(Rowan Atkinson) who plays a funny yet dimwitted Johnny English in this decent comedy. Because I believe that it wasn't as good as it could have been but it was still a good entertaining movie.
In England, Johnny English and his partner Boff (Ben Miller) are nothing but small agents in the Spy Corporation sorting files, but when a horrific accident happens and all of the agents die in an explosion, Johnny and Boff take the case of agent 1. Including the Crowned Jewels of England. As they go throughout England, they find many obstacles and surprises on the way.
All the actors in the movie do an excellent job and especially Rowan Atkinson who half the time says things that don't even exist like spy techniques and such and most of the time acts like James Bond.
To go along with his impression of James Bond they use 007 music during the entire movie, which fits perfectly with what he is doing at the time.
The camera footage wasn't incredible or anything, but it was definitely good enough for a nicely put together movie. In the movie there wasn't really any special effects or features either, but just has normal footage.
You probably will have to rent it on video or DVD depending on where you live. It is not a book and to understand the humor it should be for ages abut 11 and up. One of my favorite parts is when he is telling the governor of the spy association that it is the most secure area in London and then a building behind him blows up. That scene is pretty easy to understand but during the movie there are other scenes that are much more difficult to understand.
If you are looking for not a laugh out loud movie but a good funny movie to see with your 11 years or older son or daughter, this is the movie you'll want to see.
If you walked into the movies thinking that Johnny English (PG) would be so funny that you would have to leave the room on account that you that you were laughing too loud? Then guess again.
Johnny English is a pretty good movie, but it only made me snicker once. The only funny part is toward the end of the movie. The rest of it I would call an adventure not a comedy.
The movie starts out when all of the agents die in an explosion except for one who goes by, Johnny English. Johnny gets put on the case that agent one was on to.
Johnny attends a party at a building that has the jewels of England stored and locked up inside of it. Soon someone steals the jewels and Johnny is after that guy along with his assistant, Bluff.
Along the way Johnny makes alot of mistakes including capturing the wrong bad guy twice, jumping off a plane and landing on the wrong building, and more. Except all of his mistakes are extremely obvious.
I would probably give this movie two and one-half stars and if I were you I would rent it because Peter Howit's movie is good put it's not oscar star quality.

I was laughing within five minutes of turning on this movie. Now, let me be honest, I despise James Bond movies so something that makes fun of the spy genre appeals to me... Read morePublished on Dec 9 2008 by Victoria
The British try to hard to be funny in this movie. While the storyline kept my interest, the humor was too juvenile for me. Read morePublished on July 3 2004 by Chota Man
This movie is ok. It probably would be more funny if I were British, since they have such a dry wit. It kept me interested, not laughing, by interested in seeing how it ended. Read morePublished on July 2 2004
