Trivia

There is a scene in which 'Rowan Atkinson' (q) plays the part of Baron De Witt, a crazy man who was in line for the throne of England ahead of Pascal Savauge, however this scene was cut from the movie. It can be viewed in the deleted scenes on the DVD Special Features menu. See more »

Goofs

In the aerial establishing shot of London, before Sauvage's coronation, we see the sun reflecting off the River Thames coming from the West indicating it is evening, but the radio voice over says "Good Morning". See more »

Quotes

Johnny English: Ah, the Heckler and Koch G-36. Quite deadly in the right hands.

More for the Fans of Rowan Atkinson.
29 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

A clumsy daydreamer by the name of Johnny English (Rowan Atkinson), who works for the Secret Spy Agency. When all the British Top Spies are killed, they asked Johnny to take over the case to investigate a mysterious rich evil french man by the name of Pascal Sauvage (John Malkovich). Johnny's only help is from his loyal partner (Ben Miller) and a beautiful, mysterious spy woman (Natalie Imbruglia) could help bring Sauvage to Justice.

Directed by Peter Howitt (Anti-Trust, Laws of Attraction, Sliding Doors) made a entertaining comedy that spoofs the films of James Bond and The Naked Gun Trilogy. Atkinson is a delight and Malkovich is at his silliest role to date (He seems to have a real good time in this movie). The film's plot is surprisingly good but you wish, there is more laughs at times. Atkinson's fans won't be disappointed.

DVD has an sharp anamorphic Widescreen (1.85:1) transfer (Also sharp in Pan & Scan transfer) and an good-Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. DVD Extras are Deleted Scenes, Behind the Scenes Featurette and more. Kids will probably enjoy this more than the adults. Written by Neal Purvis (The World is Not Enough), Robert Wade (Die Another Day) and William Davies (Twins). (*** ½/*****).
