Johnny English

Johnny English (2003) is a comic movie parodying the James Bond secret agent genre, starring Rowan Atkinson as the incompetent British spy of the title, with John Malkovich, Natalie Imbruglia and Ben Miller, and featuring a unique car chase.

The screeplay was written by Bond writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, with William Davies and Ben Elton, and the film is directed by Peter Howitt.

The character of Johnny English himself is based on a similar character called Philip Latham who was played by Atkinson in a series of British television commercials for Barclaycard.
