Like a friend that you like but you're not sure why, it doesn't really work to any proper standard but remains strangely endearing.
There aren't really any characters, or even any caricatures, in this relatively limp spy satire, meaning that most of the jokes simply fall flat because there isn't a lens through which to view them. Even when they do manage to evoke a chuckle, it's usually a bemused one, because it's clear that much of the picture should be funny but just isn't and indeed that a majority of it shouldn't work but just does, to its own somewhat handicapped extent, thanks only to its physically brilliant star. The whole flick is like a friend that you like but you're not sure why, that guy who turns up at parties and makes awkward jokes that you smile at because you feel like you should, and as a result I found myself smiling more in anticipation of the gags than in the wake of them, reluctant to admit that this childhood classic of mine might not be as good as I initially thought, but also not entirely surprised when I came to the conclusion that it really wasn't and that I was strangely okay with that. 5/10
Perfect for what it needs to be!
Rarely does "Johnny English" do anything wrong. The movie goes exactly into the direction and structure it wants to go. It is paved with delightful humor and even romance.
Rowan Atkinson delivers big time, giving Johnny English the perfect mix of slapstick Mr Bean and even some James Bond elements. That is exactly what makes him the perfect protagonist; likeable but also not completely stupid.
Does the movie take itself serious? No, but it doesn't need to.
The plot ist pretty predictable, but that is no problem if it is executed so well. In addition, Johnny English even features some nice action sequences and some good relationships.
But At the end of the day, it's the humor that makes the movie. Over all nearly 90 minutes (that by the way never drag) the laughs never stop coming. It is not the deepest comedy, but the laughs feel fresh, well written and performed great by Atkinson. Even the supporting actors such as Ben Miller & Natalie Imbruglia do a fine job.
All in all, "Johnny English" is far from a cinematic masterpiece with excellent storytelling, iconic one liners or the most exciting and deep plot. But I would lie if I said I don't have a good time watching this movie over and over again and still laugh all the way. 9/10
