We bought Johnny English 2 on dvd
its a mixed bag the kids loved almost all of it we (the adults) felt it lacked a coherency several times (Maybe the kids are right maybe it was aimed at the kids). So glad Pierce was not in this movie it would be a bridge too far in lampooning his onw legacy.,
One thing I think it seriously lampooned the serious tone set in CR and in fact I think it spent a lot of time lampooning CR, shots to the crotch, dead on a bleeping monitor, everyone cheering for him to be revived, poisoned by a drink, running around chasing a monkey at a construction site. Several more points where I think it took time to mock the rebooted series. THe M person / Boss saying she cleaned up Mi7 could be Dench.
There are a few times where they obvious mocked the old Mooreish sexual predator Bond. Pierce as the bad guy would be to mcuh.
Where was Bob (Bov?) the sidekick from the first movie? the young balck man was a nice sidekick but Bob should be there in some manner.
A good slapstick movie even if parts of it didn't make sense to me.
English should have recognize the bad guy and the rest of it should followed the Johnny English 1 where his team tried to prove it against the odds. The cleaning woman mistaken for the granny / queen gag should have been done only once.
Honestly I would trust these people to make a proper Bond film they had so much of the fee right, they introduced a likable Q who got a long with English like Q and Bond used to. The leading women were pretty good, were it missed IMO was where they went off to do the extra comedy gags where if they were main a proper Bond movie they woudl not go of course. It also had good locations. I looked it up it only cost $45 million I think they used the money well overall.
