A tame spy spoof that elicits infrequent chuckles.

The movie is silly, silly, silly -- and proud of it. There's a good chance you will be giggling helplessly at some point in Johnny English, and 7- to 14-year-olds will be giddy throughout.
Inept and painfully unfunny.
Mike Myers has worked this material to death.
There weren't enough good laughs for me to recommend it to anyone other than the most devoted Beanheads.
A funny summer frolic.
[A] completely unnecessary and nearly chuckle-free spy movie spoof ...
Johnny English is more I Spy than the genuine genius of Austin Powers. It ain't great, but it's funny because he's funny.
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.
Another feeble 007 parody.
Johnny English is a horrible attempt at doing yet another parody of James Bond. The genre had been parodied with the superior Austin Powers, but it seems like they needed yet another spoof flick to make a bit more money. This film fails at delivering effective laughs. Rowan Atkinson is tiresome and boring here, and you can see the career of a once great comedian fall apart on-screen. Atkinson has created one of comedies greatest characters with Mr. Bean. However with this film, he delivers a painfully unfunny performance that doesn't cut it. This is a pointless film, and if you're looking for the spy film parody, watch the Austin Powers films instead. Rowan Atkinson is wasted here, and he has displayed better comedic performances in the past. This film is simply a misfire. I really didn't enjoy the film, as I felt that the joke were predictable, and overdone. This film was a letdown, and I expected better from Rowan Atkinson. Essentially this is Mr. Bean as a spy, and nothing more. Johnny English could have been good, but it suffers from a poor script, and poor acting. This comedy isn't funny, and there are more bad things with it than good. Rowan Atkinson has done better in the past, but with this one he misses the mark big time. Watch Austin Powers instead. Johnny English is a case of it's been done before, and better too.
OMFG Rowan Atkinson is awesome in this role, he was clearly born to play this role!
Its hilarious and thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable with a great cast and a great story and awesome movie!
Reallyu worth a wtach!!
Spoof spy movie. Rowan is an inept spy who causes havoc wherever he goes. John is the bad guy who steals the crown jewels and wants to become King of England.
This is just good old family fun. It's just funny...that's all there is to say
