Originally the "Johnny English" sequel was going to be filmed in 2006, but Rowan Atkinson elected to do "Mr. Bean's Holiday" instead. See more »
During the aerial shot before the MI7 meeting in London, the wording to the bottom right of the "camera" screen says "GEOCACHING". Geocaching is a hobby using GPS to find hidden items, not something which should be on this sort of camera readout. See more »
This movie is damn funny. I didn't watch the first show, but I can assure you, when I went to watch it yesterday at 21.15, all shows from 20.45, 21.00, 21.15, 21.30, 21.45 were full. Also, during the parts where Mr Bean just talked something funny, the whole theatre was laughing. I almost threw my popcorn up into the air during the chair shrinking part, and my dad choked on his drink. The whole movie is funny and not in a lowbrow way like most movies you see nowadays with disgusting sex or poop jokes. It has the British humour. And the opening scenes imitate the parkour one in James Bond but it is much more realistic. I think, if you don't set your expectations too high, you will find it above your expectations.
