I really like Rowan Atkinson and most of his work. That's probably why I expected a lot from this movie. If you're 14 years old and are into watching corny movies with your friends this movie might be for you, if not AVOID! All the ''jokes'' have been done many times before and you can see them coming for miles. It's not a spy movie(i.e. exciting), it's not a comedy(i.e. funny), it's nothing really. I got really bored after 15 minutes and was looking at my watch through the whole movie and once again I'm really into Mr. Bean and Rowans other characters. Rowan looked tired, the film looked tired, everything about this whole movie looked worn-out. A real shame for such a great character like Rowan but no more Johnny English please!
