User Review

Classic comedy!

Rating: 9/10


Silly as hell, but funny as anything! Rowan Atkinson once again shows
the world his talents – impeccable comic timing, style, a little bit of
cheekiness, and superb acting. This movie is a personal favourite of
mine, and I reckon it is perfect to watch anytime you feel low or need
some cheering up. The man who brought you Bean (1997), now brings you
Johnny English, a parody of James Bond. I loved Bean, and I love this
one just as much, if not more. Ignore the pathetic critics that rate
this as crap, because it most certainly isn't. It is a piece of comedy
that you will not regret seeing – I recommend this to anyone. Heck,
even my grandmother liked it! (And that's saying something)

Seriously, if you haven't watched this, you really need to.
