Can't get enough of those accidental agent movies like Spy Kids and Cody Banks? Johnny English will cure you of all that.

Johnny English is Mostly Painful

On TV, Rowan Atkinson is great in small Mr. Bean/Black Adder-size doses. And, on the big screen he rules as supporting characters in movies like the Lion King and Scooby-Doo (where he was totally wasted.) But as the Austin Powers wannabe, Johnny English, Rowan falls flat - a lot. The blame can't all be stacked on the shoulders of the slightly scrawny spy, though. After all, a good movie has to have a good story and Johnny English doesn't. Written by the team who penned the last two James Bond movies, Die Another Day and The World Is Not Enough, this very, very unfunny flick is a middle-aged version of The Spy Who Shagged Me.

Johnny English Surprises

Johnny English is so bad, I'm surprised Eddie Murphy isn't in it! What is a surprise is John Malkovich as nasty guy Pascal Sauvage. Mr. Malkovich is a great actor. How many actors have starred in a movie about themselves (Being John Malkovich?) Why is he in this movie? Why is singer Natalie Imbruglia in Johnny English? Did they owe someone a big favor?

Johnny English - The Bottom Line

If you like Austin Powers, you may giggle at Johnny English. But if all that slap-schtick leaves you cold, stay away. Stay far away!
