They Called This a Movie Episode 99 - Johnny English (2003)

We go across the pond this week in an all new, listener requested episode of They Called This a Movie. 
When the entirety of Her Majesty's Secret Service gets wiped out, there's only one man that can save England from evil that threatens the crown: Rowan Atkinson. That's right, Mr. Bean himself is here to save the day, as we discuss Johnny English, a film that surprisingly spawned two sequels. 
Join us as we discuss this comedic spy movie, written by the two guys responsible for the last decade of James Bond films. We discuss how bad the comedy works, try to understand what Natalie Imbruglia is doing in this film, and discuss how this is actually a better James Bond movie that some others in recent memory.
