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.

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.

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.

A funny summer frolic.
July 22, 2003
Wildly uneven and yet, at times, nothing less than wildly entertaining.
July 22, 2003
A goofy, pratfall-laden guilty pleasure.

My eight year old thought the movie was Oscar quality. I'll let that statement speak for itself.

Oh, I SAY...let's not make any more British-spy spoofs, shall we?

Fans of the English comedian should obviously find much more to like, as will pre-teens who get the giggles from his broad physical schtick.
July 18, 2003
Innocuous, if dumb, fun.

Johnny is never as inspired as the best moments of the Powers movies, but it's cleaner and more consistent than they are.
July 18, 2003
Johnny English may well be too specifically British, and too slight, to connect strongly with audiences, but it's a pleasant enough diversion.
July 18, 2003
The spy-spoof genre is old hat ... but Atkinson is such an inventive, endearing clown that one doesn't mind.
July 18, 2003
A slight tee-hee of a comedy that, like a bargain wine, induces a wince on first sip but finishes well.
July 18, 2003
While you don't have to be a super sleuth to see the over-obvious gags coming, Atkinson's elastic mugging usually pulls 'em through.
July 18, 2003
There's a lot of entertainment, especially for families, in Johnny English.
July 18, 2003
If Johnny English doesn't rollick with laughs it at least generally frolics with good-natured fun.
