There is a scene in which Rowan Atkinson plays the part of Baron De Witt, a crazy man who was in line for the throne of England ahead of Pascal Savauge, however this scene was cut from the movie. It can be viewed in the deleted scenes on the DVD Special Features menu. See more »

Goofs

During the car chase, the bad guys look behind them and say "Those idiots are right behind us...faster!" and the car behind them is red. But then when the hearse speeds up, it's silver, and when the hearse turns at the corner, it's blue. See more »

Nothing but Mr.Bean with lines..
2 September 2003 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Hmm....what can be said about this film? I was amused many places, but the plotlines were so predictable you could tell all the things meant to be funny was about to happen, way before the climax of the amusement took place...sad, very sad....Johnny English is a strange character - he has his moments where he seems a little intelligent and he has a big talent for coming up with excuses, but apart from that, he is immensely stupid - stupid to a point where the fun stops. I know Rowan Atkinson spoke out that English was completely new character of his, but it is NOT - take Mr. Bean, add speaking lines and you've more or less got Johnny English. If he HAD to repeat his old characters, I would much rather see an agent of the Edmund Blackadder caliber! THERE would be something to have fun with!

I'd say that this is NOT one of Atkinson's better moments, and I actually think the picture is stolen by his agent male partner, of the flick - the rookie (I forget his name). He is toned down a lot but he is the one that made me laugh at several places, amongst others the lines "Are you coming over here in a minute, sir?". Won't spoil anything, but if you've seen the movie you know what I refer to.

But, if you're an Atkinson fan, like myself, go and see it. It's not horrible, but it's not fabolous either! Around average, nothing more, nothing less..
