Johnny English Reviews

Film Snobs

Will Jacques Chirac inspire the next round of international spy movie villains?

Johnny English plays like a tired exercise, a spy spoof with no burning desire to be that, or anything else.

Johnny English is a tamer Austin Powers crossed with Get Smart, with very little in the way of effective humor.

The spy parts aren't exciting enough and the funny parts aren't funny enough, but the overall effect is mildly amusing.

Even several of Atkinson's falling-flat gags fall flat.

Unless you have an incurable case of Anglophilia, save your hard-earned moneypenny for the DVD rental.

[A] completely unnecessary and nearly chuckle-free spy movie spoof ...

Well, I guess this proves that Americans aren't the only ones apt to characterize the French as obnoxious, power-hungry fops.

If not for the similar Austin Powers movies, maybe a lot of what's in this film would have played better, and fresher. But as it stands, it looks old hat.

Every possible laugh was wrung out of this idea several decades ago, then the Austin Powers movies drove them deep into the ground. Now Atkinson comes along to do it all again, as if no one ever had.

Rowan Atkinson is a gifted comedian. Too bad Johnny English isn't more befitting his significant talents.

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

The good jokes are so infrequent Johnny English could be retitled You Only Laugh Twice.

To use the movie's lingo, it's a cockup, not a crack-up.
