If the troubled Bond franchise needs inspiration on how to reinvent itself, it could do worse than to look to Johnny English Reborn. The secret is not to take it so seriously.
June 30, 2013
A fun, family-friendly comedy that feels like a combination of Austin Powers and Ernest P. Worrell.
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.
March 19, 2012
Austin Powers, this is not, and I suppose that's what most people would have been expecting when they saw it.
November 4, 2011
With a nod to Mr. Bean, Johnny English Reborn delivers comedy in any language.
October 22, 2011
The under-12s in the theater seemed to enjoy it immensely.
October 22, 2011
He's priceless, no matter how many Mr. Bean episodes he's made.
October 21, 2011
Johnny English Reborn is funny enough to make you laugh and plausible enough, in an exploding-umbrella type of way, to make you care.
October 21, 2011
Other than being family-friendly, Johnny English Reborn has only a handful of chuckles to recommend it.
October 21, 2011
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)
October 21, 2011
Especially considering the meandering storylines of today's uninspired remakes and sequels, this movie is keenly focused on what it's trying to do.
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.
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.
October 20, 2011
The movie coasts on the charms of its rubber-faced star and its witty, easygoing set pieces.
October 20, 2011
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.
October 19, 2011
[An] enjoyable if somewhat wheezy reprise.
October 18, 2011
Improves on its unwatchable predecessor.
October 17, 2011
[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.
