Johnny English, the accidental secret agent who doesn't know fear or danger and the most unlikely intelligence officer in Her Majesty's Secret Service, must stop a group of international assassins before they eliminate a world leader and cause global chaos. In the years since MI7's top spy vanished off the grid, he has been honing his unique skills in a remote region of Asia. But when his agency superiors learn of an attempt against the Chinese Premier's life, they must hunt down the highly unorthodox agent. Now that the world needs him once again, Johnny English is back in action. With one shot at redemption, he must employ the latest in hi-tech gadgets to unravel a web of conspiracy that runs throughout the K.G.B., C.I.A., and even MI7. With a mere few days until a heads of state conference, one man must use every trick in his playbook to protect us all. For Johnny English, disaster may be an option, but failure never is.Written by

Went on a Sunday to watch this movie and Rowan Atkinson makes my day. I don't mind all his bumbling's to put on a good show in the end. A fun family watch. It will leave you in a feel good mood.
I did not go with any expectations to watch this movie. Although I did feel that overall the movie was a bit tepid and would say that Mr.Atkinson's antics managed to pull in the laughs.
Rowan Atkinson looks lean and has lost some weight in the movie, a few extra pounds and a little hair color would have perfected his look. The salt and pepper hair makes him seem like the neighborhood uncle :-)
Those who do not like the character of Mr. Bean (I cant understand why) however may be heavily critical but I would recommend that you leave aside your logic and reasoning and you will surely find the goofs worth the ride.
