QUICK TAKE:
Action- Based Comedy: A bumbling British spy is pressed back into service to thwart an elaborate assassination plot.
PLOT:
The disgraced British spy Johnny English (ROWAN ATKINSON) is pressed back into service when the life of the Chinese Premier is threatened by a rogue group of terrorists. He clashes with his boss, Pegasus (GILLIAN ANDERSON); is reunited with suave, super spy Simon (DOMINIC WEST); falls for beautiful psychiatrist Kate (ROSAMUND PIKE); pairs with a rookie agent named Tucker (DANIEL KALUUYA); and is outfitted with gadget weaponry by Quartermain (TIM McINNERNY).

His investigation takes him to Hong Kong where he learns from a rogue CIA agent named Fisher (RICHARD SCHIFF) that there are three pieces to a key that will unlock a chamber containing a top-secret mind control drug. A Russian assassin named Karlenko (MARK IVANIR) has possession of the second part of the key. Both men are shot and killed by an elderly female assassin (PIK SEN LIM) who doubles as a cleaning lady and wields an arsenal of tricked-out vacuum cleaners that double as weapons. The assassins intend to use the drug to maneuver Pegasus into killing the Chinese leader during an upcoming summit.

Johnny soon learns that there is a rogue British agent working with the terrorists to bring about war. He or she has the third part of the key. But due to his bumbling ways, Johnny is set up to look like the traitor, and it is up to him and his friends to save the world.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Yes, the movie is being heavily marketed on the Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. It's PG-rated with minimal bad language and the violence is quite cartoony.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For mild action violence, rude humor, some language and brief sensuality.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
