    If you like Rowan Atkinson's other work then you'll probably like this one. 8 years 2 months ago

    What if Blackadder were a secret agent is kind of the question Johnny English answers. A Bond spoof that well illustrates Stephen Fry's theory of American vs. British comedy. Johnny doesn't laugh at the fools around him, he IS the fool. Rowan Atkinson has made a career of playing that archetype, after all. So Johnny dreams of being a superspy, gets his wish when all the real ones are killed, but spends most of his time trying to cover his mistakes. I generally like Atkinson playing suave only to have the situation dribble on his shirt, as it were, but the humiliations were a little too well telegraphed here to really hit, and the physical humor often fell flat. Natalie Imbruglia's performance as a Bond girl is fine, if generic, and John Malkovich as the villain has some fun, providing an appropriately ludicrous evil plot. And I do like Robbie Williams' comedy take on a Bond song - it's better than some of the one's we gotten. Ultimately, it's fine, just a little obvious. 2 years 9 months ago
