Why, you may ask, is there a sequel to Johnny English, the 2003 Rowan Atkinson spy comedy that didn’t even break $30 million at the box office? Well, because it made $160 million worldwide, demonstrating that — in rare cases — the rest of the world is as dumb as the United States when it comes to indiscriminate taste. (It’s also the same reason there were sequels to Mr. Bean and Nanny McPhee. I guess they’re better than Kevin James family comedies?)
Anyway, there’s a trailer. I’m not suggesting you watch it, although it is embedded below. In fact, I’m warning against it. Move on with your lives. Go to the next post. See if you can loop a string up one nostril and down the other. Or better yet! Tie a piece of gum to string, swallow the gum, and see if you can pull the gum back up! Anything other than pressing play on this trailer.
Failure to heed this warning may result in catastrophic head injury.
