The spy parts aren't exciting enough and the funny parts aren't funny enough.

Contrived, bland, and unfunny with an awful lead character...

While it lives up to the very definition of 'hit and miss', the parts that hit are very funny.

You won't die laughing in the theater, but the filmmakers aren't asking you to, as they do in the frantic, adolescent comedies that dominate the market. It's a pleasure.

Straight from Tony Blair, English's next assignment is a suicide mission: to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

Belongs on an old-time double bill, where it would satisfy, if only because we'd be into the second movie before we noticed that the first came up a bit short on laughs.

In spite of some wince-inducing bathroom humor, and jokes you can see coming from a mile away, this turns out be a very funny romp indeed.

Johnny English doesn't work as a spoof of the spy genre, and moreover, as you watch Atkinson at work, you begin to notice how easy this is for him -- too easy, in fact.

A poorly executed representative of the over-used spy spoof comedy.

Super predictable - a damn shame. Atkinson deserves the right vehicle but unless you already love him, he cannot transcend this vehicle.

Mike Myers has worked this material to death.

Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)

At best a spotty spy spoof with little to say about the genre beyond what Mike Myers already accomplished in 'Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery' (and wrecked in its two dreadful sequels).

| Original Score: 2/4

While Atkinson thankfully gets to repeat the physical humor of Bean, Johnny English wallows in the gross-out antics of the Austin Powers flicks but has none of their energy or inventiveness.
