Johnny English Reborn (with Giveaway)

by Jennifer Donovan

I have to admit that I haven’t seen the Johnny English or Mr. Bean movies, but I know a lot of people think Rowan Atkinson’s movies are hilarious family entertainment. After watching this trailer for Johnny English Reborn (in theaters today October 21), I’m convinced that it would be a good fit for both my son (7) and my daughter (13), and my husband and I would enjoy it too.

Film Synopsis:

Rowan Atkinson returns to the role of the improbable secret agent who doesn’t know fear or danger in the comedy spy-thriller Johnny English Reborn. In his latest adventure, the most unlikely intelligence officer in Her Majesty’s Secret Service must stop a group of international assassins before they eliminate a world leader and cause global chaos.

In the years since MI-7’s top spy vanished off the grid, he has been honing his unique skills in a remote region of Asia. But when his agency superiors learn of an attempt against the Chinese premier’s life, they must hunt down the highly unorthodox agent. Now that the world needs him once again, Johnny English is back in action.

With one shot at redemption, he must employ the latest in hi-tech gadgets to unravel a web of conspiracy that runs throughout the KGB, CIA and even MI-7. With mere days until a heads of state conference, one man must use every trick in his playbook to protect us all. For Johnny English, disaster may be an option, but failure never is.

Enter to Win:

I have great news. One 5 Minutes for Mom reader (U.S. shipping addresses only) will win

This weekend, I’ll either be off to the theaters or checking out DVDs with some Rowan Atkinson. What about you? Are you a fan?

Thanks for revealing your ideas. I’d personally also like to express that video games have been ever before evolving. Today’s technology and inventions have served create practical and fun games. These types of entertainment games were not actually sensible when the real concept was being attempted. Just like other areas of know-how, video games way too have had to evolve by many many years. This is testimony to the fast progression of video games.
