When her majesty's crown jewels are stolen by a conniving Frenchman, who also plans to steal the queen's throne, spy Johnny English, a bit unseasoned but intensely enthusiastic, is thrown onto the case. Fast cars, high tech gadgets, top secret info--Johnny can hardly believe it. He may be in over his head, but his courage and dedication are unmatched--especially after he meets double agent Lorna Campbell and discovers that falling in love makes saving the nation even more exciting.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Inept and painfully unfunny."
‑ Scott Von Doviak, Fort Worth Star-Telegram/
"A funny summer frolic."
‑ Hazel-Dawn Dumpert, L.A. Weekly
"The spy parts aren't exciting enough and the funny parts aren't funny enough."
‑ Nell Minow, Beliefnet
"You won't die laughing in the theater, but the filmmakers aren't asking you to, as they do in the frantic, adolescent comedies that dominate the market. It's a pleasure."
‑ Jake Euker, F5 (Wichita, KS)
"Belongs on an old-time double bill, where it would satisfy, if only because we'd be into the second movie before we noticed that the first came up a bit short on laughs."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"Mike Myers has worked this material to death."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"[A] completely unnecessary and nearly chuckle-free spy movie spoof ..."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Contrived, bland, and unfunny with an awful lead character..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Another feeble 007 parody."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Excruciatingly predictable"
‑ Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
"There weren't enough good laughs for me to recommend it to anyone other than the most devoted Beanheads."
‑ Jack Mathews, New York Daily News
"So much of Johnny English should be funnier than it is."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek,
"While it lives up to the very definition of 'hit and miss', the parts that hit are very funny."
‑ Bill Clark, FromTheBalcony
"Straight from Tony Blair, English's next assignment is a suicide mission: to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq."
‑ Thomas Delapa, Boulder Weekly
"In spite of some wince-inducing bathroom humor, and jokes you can see coming from a mile away, this turns out be a very funny romp indeed."
‑ Daniel M. Kimmel, Worcester Telegram & Gazette
