At last---because the dependents of the man who gave us Mr. Bean apparently demanded it---Johnny English, everyone's third or fourth favorite bumbling British secret agent, is back for another slapstick spy spoof. An incredible physical comedian, Rowan Atkinson would seemingly do anything for a laugh except one crucial thing: hold out for a better script. This sequel to 2003's Johnny English has a few inspired gags, but most of the material is on the level of English getting kicked repeatedly in his thunderballs. At least director Oliver Parker surrounded Atkinson with a wonderful cast of former TV stars like The Wire's Dominic West and Gillian Anderson. They now deserve their own career rebirths.
