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.
July 31, 2003
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.
July 21, 2003
[A] completely unnecessary and nearly chuckle-free spy movie spoof ...
July 19, 2003
So much of Johnny English should be funnier than it is.
July 18, 2003
Innocuous, if dumb, fun.
July 18, 2003
A hugely redundant spy spoof.
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
It's all safe, predictable stuff -- so predictable that the only people who won't have things figured out 10 minutes into the film are those who left after five.
July 18, 2003
Johnny English, despite its contemporary-sounding anti-French cracks, could easily have been made 20 years ago. Might have seemed better, and more fresh, if it had.
July 18, 2003
The best feature based on a TV commercial I've seen all year.
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.
July 18, 2003
Atkinson carries out his spy-spoof mission with candor and grace, or as much grace as a man can maintain while satirizing the Trainspotting climb up through a soiled potty.
July 18, 2003
Johnny English plays like a tired exercise, a spy spoof with no burning desire to be that, or anything else.
July 18, 2003
Johnny English is silly enough, but why can't this clever man make a clever movie?
July 18, 2003
Johnny English won't leave you shaken or stirred; it's simply quite likable, and there's nothing wrong with that.
