Johnny English – Edited
He knows no fear. He knows no danger. He knows…nothing! When the priceless Crown Jewels are stolen, bumbling johnny English (Rowan Atkinson) is the only Secret Agent in the country (literally!) who can solve the crime. His prime suspects: a sinister businessman (John Malkovich) with a mysterious interest in Johnny’s top-secret mission. Can the clueless super spy save the day without denting the nation’s pride… or his super-cool Aston Martin spy car?
Your whole family will howl with laughter as the clumsiest secret agent ever unleashes an onslaught of outlandish stunts, hair-brained heroics and outrageous goof-ups in this hilarious spy spoof!
Rowan Atkinson’s humor is an acquired taste. Most people either really like him or they don’t. In this spy spoof, he plays a bumbling secret agent much as Peter Sellers played the inept Inspector in the Pink Panther films. I for one think Peter Sellers was a genius at it where Atkinson tries hard but falls a bit short of, admittedly, a very high bar. Like the Pink Panther Inspector, Johnny English keeps messing up but always seems to fall on his feet. This is great family fare and you will find yourself laughing in parts.
