  • It has a touch of the British Bulldog spirit (or was that Carry on Regardless) and the bad guy does get his just deserts and from that aspect it is definitely not disappointing at all

      Not being a fan of either Rowan Atkinson (who plays Johnny English) nor a fan of James Bond, it often surprises me that this DVD version of the film is in my collection at all. Every so often when the mood is right it is taken out and given a spin.

      Johnny English as you may have been able to tell is a James Bond spoof movie and in places borders on the totally


      ridiculous.

      Due to a series of loses amongst British spies, English becomes the last remaining spy and is charged with investigating the theft of the crown jewels. In so doing he discovers the plan of French entrepreneur Pascal Sauvage (played by John Malkovich) to turn the United Kingdom into the worlds first and maybe not last open prison island.

      The character of Johnny English reminds me greatly of Mr Bean - and as it says on ...


      • the box Johnny English “knows nothing”. True, as a spy he is useless, yet it is his stupidity and ignorance that not only enable him to rescue the crown jewels and the United Kingdom from a fate worse than a nuclear explosion, but which gives the whole film its comedy.

        Whatever English attempts to do it will be a highly unsuitable choice made to look even more incompetent by his able and infinitely superior sidekicks

        Lorna (played by Natalie Imbruglia) and Bough (Ben Miller), the result it has to be said is very funny.

        Not entirely my sort of thing to be brutally honest, but the film must be recognised as well made and amusing. It has a touch of the British Bulldog spirit (or was that Carry on Regardless) and the bad guy does get his just deserts and from that aspect it is definitely not disappointing at all.
