At the Swiss government fortress, the German designation for the "Vista Lounge" reads "Aussicht Zimmer", which is supposed to be a literal translation of the former, but it is not only a misspelling (it should read "Aussichtszimmer") but also a term nobody in the German-speaking word would use for the room depicted - "Aussichtsraum" or "Aussichts-Lounge" would be more appropriate. Also the German term for the "Conference Chamber" is misspelled. Instead of "Konferenz Saal" it should read "Konferenzsaal".

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.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

During the chase in Hong Kong, when Johnny English walks off the pallet after having been craned between buildings, he says Thank You to a builder in Mandarin. His experience should have told him to use Cantonese instead. However, as we saw in the first film, English is highly incompetent in many ways and this may be another.

Plot holes 

Simon Ambrose informed the team that Johnny English is the third man in Vortex, resulting in the latter being suspended from the case. Why aren't they suspicious about Ambrose letting him stand in for Pamela?

When English visits Tucker at his home, and Tucker is playing a racing game on his laptop, the movements of his car in-game seem to have nothing to do with his actions on the keyboard. When he then stands to close the curtains and talk to English, the car continues to behave as if being controlled, showing that it's just a demo video.

Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Revealing mistakes 

Near the end of the film when Johnny English goes into spasm, he drops his pistol. Briefly, you can see stamped on the side 'Tokyo Marui', 'made in Japan'. This is a replica BB gun, and fairly harmless.
