San Francisco Chronicle - Mick LaSalle
The laughs, including the big laughs, keep coming right up to the closing seconds.

Variety - Unnamed
More a resuscitation than a rebirth, Johnny English Reborn finds British comedian Rowan Atkinson reviving his spoof spy character with this enjoyable if somewhat wheezy reprise.

Movieline - Stephanie Zacharek
Johnny English Reborn never quite ignites, even though it starts out promisingly enough.

Los Angeles Times - Robert Abele
All that matters with efforts like this is whether the cookie-cutter plotting serves up enough situations for Atkinson to contort himself into and out of jams. After all, are the narratives what you remember from the "Pink Panther" movies? Or the silly things, like that Clouseau could so easily get his finger caught in a spinning globe?

Entertainment Weekly - Clark Collis
Fans of sophisticated humor may feel empathy with, if not sympathy for, the lead character on those many occasions he is kicked in the nuts.
