Right down there with the worst of Peter Sellers' Pink Panther quickies.

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.

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.

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.

Excruciatingly predictable

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.

Dies on screen.

Inept and painfully unfunny.
