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

In the sushi bar, Lorna feeds Johnny a thin, small gray fish and calls it "sea urchin." Actual sea urchin looks like a slightly squat dark ball covered with spines. What is served as sea urchin at sushi bars is the roe of the animal, which has the appearance of a grainy, yellow-orange mass. It is typically presented on top of a small ball of sushi rice, and the whole thing encircled by a strip of dried seaweed. See more »

More for the Fans of Rowan Atkinson.
29 June 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A clumsy daydreamer by the name of Johnny English (Rowan Atkinson), who works for the Secret Spy Agency. When all the British Top Spies are killed, they asked Johnny to take over the case to investigate a mysterious rich evil french man by the name of Pascal Sauvage (John Malkovich). Johnny's only help is from his loyal partner (Ben Miller) and a beautiful, mysterious spy woman (Natalie Imbruglia) could help bring Sauvage to Justice.

Directed by Peter Howitt (Anti-Trust, Laws of Attraction, Sliding Doors) made a entertaining comedy that spoofs the films of James Bond and The Naked Gun Trilogy. Atkinson is a delight and Malkovich is at his silliest role to date (He seems to have a real good time in this movie). The film's plot is surprisingly good but you wish, there is more laughs at times. Atkinson's fans won't be disappointed.

DVD has an sharp anamorphic Widescreen (1.85:1) transfer (Also sharp in Pan & Scan transfer) and an good-Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. DVD Extras are Deleted Scenes, Behind the Scenes Featurette and more. Kids will probably enjoy this more than the adults. Written by Neal Purvis (The World is Not Enough), Robert Wade (Die Another Day) and William Davies (Twins). (*** ½/*****).
