Trivia

The film has been considered by a few to be a remake or updated version of The Naked Gun: From The Files of Police Squad! (1988) which was released 15 years before this film. In both films, the main protagonists Frank Drebin, a incompetent police officer and Johnny English, a incompetent spy both become suspicious of the film's main antagonists, Vincent Ludwig, a respected businessman and Pasqual Sauvage, a French businessman, when Frank's partner Officer Nordberg is gunned down and the Crown Jewels are stolen and in both films, Frank and Johnny both discover that Ludwig and Sauvage are criminals and they uncover their schemes which both concern Queen Elizabeth.

Goofs

In the chase scene, the Aston Martin lands on a trailer. When Johnny wants to get off the trailer he has to drive backwards off the trailer, thus putting the car in reverse. After starting the engine of the Aston, the next shot shows the Aston backing out from the trailer, but the car's reversing lights are not lit. See more »

A Very Funny Parody of 007 Movies
16 August 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Johnny English (Rowan Atkinson) is a bureaucratic employee of the British Secret Service, who dreams to be a charming agent. His dreams come true when all the British agents die, due to the lack of security in a funeral where he was the responsible. Johnny English, with the support of his assistant Bough (Ben Miller) and Lorna Campbell (Natalie Imbruglia), fights against the evil Pascal Sauvage (John Malkovitch), a powerful French who wants to be the king of the United Kingdom and transforms England in a great prison for all criminals of the world. This silly story is a very funny parody of 007 movies. Rowan Atkinson is very hilarious, as usual, and it is impossible not laughing with his stupidities. The singer Natalie Imbruglia is very beautiful, the unknown Ben Miller is the efficient assistant of Johnny English, and John Malkovitch, with a ridiculous French accent, complete the funny cast of this comedy. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): `Johnny English'
