Trivia

Two of the writers of the screenplay (Neal Purvis and Robert Wade) also worked on four James Bond films: The World Is Not Enough (1999), Die Another Day (2002), Casino Royale (2006) and Quantum of Solace (2008). See more »

Goofs

When Johnny English is being lowered from the car transporter in the chase scene, an oncoming Fiat pushes underneath the Aston Martin causing all four wheels to rotate. This would only be possible if the car was in neutral gear, but it is not as when he selects reverse to back off the trailer he moves the gear selector backwards from park to reverse. Hence only the front two wheels would rotate as being a rear wheel drive in park gear, the gearbox and rear wheels would be locked and have no free rotation. See more »

Quotes

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

Crazy Credits

During the end credits, we see Lorna (who was ejected from English's car in the last scene) landing in a swimming pool. Sitting beside the swimming pool is the strange-looking man that English described to his boss early in the film. See more »

Nothing but Mr.Bean with lines..
2 September 2003 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Hmm....what can be said about this film? I was amused many places, but the plotlines were so predictable you could tell all the things meant to be funny was about to happen, way before the climax of the amusement took place...sad, very sad....Johnny English is a strange character - he has his moments where he seems a little intelligent and he has a big talent for coming up with excuses, but apart from that, he is immensely stupid - stupid to a point where the fun stops. I know Rowan Atkinson spoke out that English was completely new character of his, but it is NOT - take Mr. Bean, add speaking lines and you've more or less got Johnny English. If he HAD to repeat his old characters, I would much rather see an agent of the Edmund Blackadder caliber! THERE would be something to have fun with!

I'd say that this is NOT one of Atkinson's better moments, and I actually think the picture is stolen by his agent male partner, of the flick - the rookie (I forget his name). He is toned down a lot but he is the one that made me laugh at several places, amongst others the lines "Are you coming over here in a minute, sir?". Won't spoil anything, but if you've seen the movie you know what I refer to.

But, if you're an Atkinson fan, like myself, go and see it. It's not horrible, but it's not fabolous either! Around average, nothing more, nothing less..
