Better than expected
When my younger brother told me that he wanted me to rent this movie I was so against it but he persisted and I ended up getting it. I watched it with my dad and brother and this movie had us laughing practically the whole way through. Rowan Atkinson is an amazing actor who, somehow, can stay serious which makes it even funnier!Reviewed by Chanelle
This is the pinnacle of funny ...
This movie is hilarious! Atkinson makes you laugh at even the simple things, and the further you delve into it the better it gets. Fantastic family film that's sure to please everyone! It worked on a 19 year brother who is very picky, so should definitely work for you!Reviewed by Lachlan

Low on ambition, Johnny English Reborn still delivers some strong laughs with Atkinson bouncing well off good actors like Rosamund Pike, Gillian Anderson and Dominic West. Still given its thinness, it might be best for all the spy to now go permanently MIA.Click to read full review.
One day we'll see a film that really harnesses Atkinson's mighty talent. This isn't it.Click to read full review.
Director Oliver Parker’s pacing is off and the screenplay fails to provide a lively enough framework for this gifted and intelligent actor’s unique physical comedy.Click to read full review.

A 'slightly' more grown up take on the bumbling spy premise that will keep the little audiences entertained and the older guardians subdued.Click to read full review.
Sydney Morning Herald
Atkinson throws every comedy trick in his diverse arsenal at this film - rubber-faced Bean-isms, gross stupidity, slapstick, word plays, farce, absurdity and diverse physical oddities - and the result is a hectic, haphazard mix of the occasionally hysterical with the too-often hopeless.

Unless the first English left your funny bone aching for more, there are few quantums of solace to be had in these sub-Austin Powers low-jinks.Click to read full review.
