June 30, 2013
A fun, family-friendly comedy that feels like a combination of Austin Powers and Ernest P. Worrell.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
June 22, 2013
This is not the highest level of comedy, or even the highest level of effort from everyone involved, but at least they get out of the way and let the man work.

Austin Powers, this is not, and I suppose that's what most people would have been expecting when they saw it.

With a nod to Mr. Bean, Johnny English Reborn delivers comedy in any language.

The under-12s in the theater seemed to enjoy it immensely.

He's priceless, no matter how many Mr. Bean episodes he's made.

Johnny English Reborn is funny enough to make you laugh and plausible enough, in an exploding-umbrella type of way, to make you care.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Other than being family-friendly, Johnny English Reborn has only a handful of chuckles to recommend it.

While I wouldn't recommend paying full admission price, you could do worse flipping past it on a rainy Saturday afternoon at home while looking for family entertainment. (Movie Review for Parents also available)

Especially considering the meandering storylines of today's uninspired remakes and sequels, this movie is keenly focused on what it's trying to do.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
October 20, 2011
Neither raunchy nor crude nor ADD-addled, the movie prefers long, elaborate, often very funny gags punctuated by bursts of good-natured verbal silliness.

October 20, 2011
The humor isn't as dual-edged as, say, a Pixar comedy. But director Oliver Parker knows his genre well enough to lampoon the mainstays of the spy-flick genre, from impossibly high-tech weapons to foot chases worthy of Olympic medals.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
October 20, 2011
The movie feels about 10 minutes too long. Still the laughs, including the big laughs, keep coming right up to the closing seconds.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
October 20, 2011
The movie coasts on the charms of its rubber-faced star and its witty, easygoing set pieces.

All that matters with efforts like this is whether the cookie-cutter plotting serves up enough situations for Atkinson to contort himself into and out of jams.

October 20, 2011
The mix of groin injury and over-explanation could totally reach 9-year-olds and a greying Atkinson is still relentlessly lovable.

[An] enjoyable if somewhat wheezy reprise.

Improves on its unwatchable predecessor.

[VIDEO] While it doesn't live up to the quirky physical comedy the incomparable Rowan Atkinson is capable of, this follow-up to his 2003 spy spoof functions well as a worthy PG-rated comedy for kids.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
October 13, 2011
Straight-faced support from Gillian Anderson and Dominic West as fellow MI7 operatives adds to the fun, but it's clearly Atkinson's show from start to finish.
