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...
June 20, 2005
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.
February 7, 2004
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.

August 7, 2003
Inept and painfully unfunny.
August 3, 2003
A poorly executed representative of the over-used spy spoof comedy.
August 1, 2003
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.

July 30, 2003
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).

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.

There weren't enough good laughs for me to recommend it to anyone other than the most devoted Beanheads.
