From Back Cover:

"Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean) Keeps the Laughs Coming!"
-Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV

He knows no fear. He knows no danger. He knows...nothing! When the priceless Crown Jewels are stolen, bumbling Johnny English (Rowan Atkinson) is the only Secret Agent in the country (literally!) who can solve the crime. His prime suspects: a sinister businessman (John Malkovich) and a beautiful woman (Natalie Imbruglia) with a mysterious interest in Johnny's top-secret mission. Can the clueless super spy save the day without denting the nation's pride... or his super-cool Aston Martin spy car?

Your whole family will howl with laughter as the clumsiest secret agent ever unleashes an onslaught of outlandish stunts, hair-brained heroics and outrageous goof-ups in this hilarious spy spoof!

My Comments:

Mr. Bean meets James Bond with an absolute crap result. Rowan Atkinston seriously needs to stop making feature films using this sort of persona. I mean, don't get me wrong, I like Mr. Bean the T.V. show, but this sort of thing is only funny in small doses.
