One strange night a cyber-attack occurs exposing all the identities of the British M17 agents from an unidentified source. This action forces the British Prime Minister (Emma Thompson) to reinstate the retired agent Johnny English (Rowan Atkinson),who is currently working as a geography teacher, teaching gifted students to become special agents on the side. Along with his side kick Bourgh (Ben Miller), he heads to the south of France to save the day, where they encounter a beautiful Russian spy (Olga Kurylenko), who is working with the man they suspect is guilty of the crime.

The film is quite silly and ridiculous but if anyone has seen Rowan Atkinson play the character of Mr. Bean, you just can’t expect to take anything in this film seriously. It is a perfect film just to laugh and forget the real problems that we may have in our daily lives. I was incredibly surprised to see both Emma Thompson and Rowan Atkinson looking so young. It is hard to believe that they are both older than I am. I must be doing something wrong! What is their secret? (Shelly Schoeneshoefer)
