surprisingly funny
30 August 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I wasn't a big fan of Rowan Atkinson and didn't have a lot of expectation out of this film, but it really cracked me up. First of all, you need to understand "Johnny English" is not a British version of "Austin Power". I found "A.P" ridiculous in general and didn't always appreciate their jokes. But Johnny English is one of those better made spy topic comedian films.

The best approach of watching this movie is to see it without a lot of expectation and I assure you that you will have a good time.
