A bit disappointing.
Well, maybe it was not that bad, and I exaggerated, but remembering the first Johnny English was a very funny movie (I vaguely remember, but I’m pretty sure because I’ve got some good impression after watching it), I don’t think this movie is that funny.
However, the trailer was really funny, and when I think of Rowan Atkinson I always think of Mr. Bean. So maybe instead of another chick flick (thinking of watching Change Up, starring Ryan Reynolds), I thought this movie might be better. I kinda regret it, but, it’s ok…
Ok, here’s the statement again: the trailer was funny, and the movie was… quite funny as well, but it was not as funny as I expected (sad).
The acting was usual, the setting was usual, the joke… was a bit usual, the story was also usual. I guess more or less all is predictable, but it’s still ok (but I still vote Horrible Bosses to be wayyyyy much funnier).
On top of that, I watched this movie on Saturday evening at around 5pm, and all the others who watch are teenagers (okay, I think most are primary school students to junior high ones, and they are so so so so sooooo soooooooooooooooooo noisy). When something heroic happened, they clapped; when something funny happened, they laughed hard; when there’s a kissing scene, they whistled. Hmm…
If you have other movies which look more appealing to you, I don’t really recommend this movie. Not really worth it to watch in the cinema (if on DVD etc, I think it’s ok one). Yet it is still a funny movie, and quite a good laugh for those of you who need one. But after just 5 hours of watching the movie, I kinda forgot the story already (which means that it didn’t really… give much impression).
