This is the kind of film that you know exactly what you are getting when you go in. The good news is that this movie delivers on that promise.
Is it a great work of cinematic art? No, but that isn't the point. This is a fun, entertaining, goofy, laugh-out-loud comedy that also has a pretty decent plot. The acting isn't outstanding, but they are really only there to push the plot forward and give us a few good laughs along the way. And they all do a fine job of that.
If you are a fan of the other JOHNNY ENGLISH films, MR. BEAN, or British humor in general, you will enjoy this film. It is filled with funny jokes and great physical comedy.
Perhaps the best part of this movie is that it is almost completely family friendly...almost. (It's PG so there is some Parental Guidance necessary). I took my 8 year old daughter to see it and with one exception I didn't feel like it was above her level of innocence. There were a couple of moments we talked through, but in the end she liked it almost as much as I did.
If you are looking for a lot of (mostly) clean laughs this is a perfect choice.
