There's not much to say about "Johnny English" except that it's a reasonably funny film with good acting. Rowan Atkinson plays Mr. English with less-than-expected buffoonish flair. I really was hoping that he would bust into one of Mr. Bean's signature screw-ups, but Bean this ain't, so don't expect too much slapstick.
