What the film really needed was an injection of comedy that plays to Atkinson's strengths. He's a funny guy, but this material just isn't worthy of him.

It's really the directing in this film that really fouls it all up.
September 22, 2011
Not every gag in Johnny English Reborn is predictable, obvious and unfunny. Some of them are established and then ignored completely.

Atkinson revives the comic secret agent that he first introduced in a series of TV ads in the UK, but this thin script gives him nothing remotely like a rebirth.

"English Reborn" isn't terrible and is certainly seriously harmless...But it does remind one of the glorious past and the potential Atkinson never realized in his movies, even the hit ones.

It's banal to the point that kids at the film's New York press screening were apparently bored out of their minds.

Anyone with any intelligence is advised to steer clear.

After this second assignment, Johnny's licence to thrill has been revoked.
October 20, 2011
The movie no one much liked has a sequel no one asked for.

Rowan Atkinson has just slapped a new coat of paint on the old, simple and somewhat tired James Bond clown-car.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 5, 2011
Director Oliver Parker displays a shocking inadequacy at generating even a mild titter from a few moments that had the potential to be funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
October 6, 2011
The most exasperating thing about Johnny English Reborn is that it isn't quite as awful as you might expect.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 21, 2011
A sequel to the underwhelming spy spoof starring Rowan Atkinson, Johnny English Reborn features good ideas which are lazily applied in a comedy that will make you smirk but not laugh.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
September 21, 2011
It struck me with this take on the hapless hero that Johnny English is perhaps taking himself more seriously this time around. There are occasional laughs but the wild silliness is missing.

Witless, overlong, unfunny and stupid, it's a film so bad it defies understanding.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/5
September 15, 2011
Moderately funny if you still laugh at people walking into stuff, falling off stuff, and having their private parts inadvertently collide with stuff. Chillingly unfunny if you don't.

He is not reborn here so much as he is unnecessarily redundant.
| Original Score: 2/5
October 21, 2011
Reborn is more of a spiritual title. Everything else in this silly but draggy comedy is pure rehash.
Full Review | Original Score: C+

Slapstick-heavy spoof features dumbed-down humor for tweens.
