Rowan Atkinson, the brilliant physical comedian whose outrageous pratfalls and subversively innocent humour have made him a star in hilarious classics ranging from the cult TV series Blackadder to the hit movie Bean, is back on the big screen in the family comedy Johnny English.
When her majesty's crown jewels are stolen by a conniving Frenchman (John Malkovich), who also plans to steal the queen's throne, agent Johnny English (Atkinson), is thrown onto the case. While English may be a bit green he is intensely enthusiastic. Fast cars, high tech gadgets, top-secret info - Johnny can hardly believe it.
He may be in over his head, but his courage and dedication are unmatched - especially after he meets double agent Lorna Campbell (Natalie Imbruglia) and discovers that falling in love makes saving the nation even more exciting.
Johnny English is a spy comedy with thrills, chills and surprises for the whole family.
What the critics are saying:
"...a likeable parody that, while never quite as side-splitting as it thinks it is, still contains a good number of well-worked comic set-pieces."- Neil Smith, BBCi"There are few real belly laughs in Johnny English, but there is enough humour to keep an audience smiling for almost 90 minutes."- Mark Adams, Hollywood Reporter"...Johnny English isn't a bad effort. Rowan Atkinson is much more of a comedian than Mike Myers is, but unfortunately Myers had the spy spoof down pat."- Lou Lumenick, New York Post
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
