Johnny English Reborn (2011)

Rowan Atkinson used to make deliciously funny television. Then he invented Mr Bean.

Johnny English, Atkinson's James Bond parody, is far more Bean than Blackadder - which means it is funny in the laziest way possible. No real genre parody or satire here.

Watch it if you remember Atkinson as Bean and actually want more of that. Skip if you think Blackadder remains the best comedy he's done.
