Synopsis

Triple-bill of comedy espionage adventures. In 'Johnny English' (2002), Rowan Atkinson plays Johnny English, a lowly government clerk who suddenly finds himself promoted to the position of Britain's Number One International Spy. Sent into action after the crown jewels are stolen, English and his sidekick Bough (Ben Miller) soon begin to suspect billionaire Pascal Sauvage (John Malkovich). The plot thickens when the mysterious Lorna Campbell (Natalie Imbruglia) begins turning up in the most unexpected places. In 'I Spy' (2002), a stealth fighter that is invisible to radar and also can become invisible to the human eye has been stolen, and is now in the hands of underground arms dealer Gundars (Malcolm McDowell). Federal agent Alex Scott (Owen Wilson) has failed once to get to Gundars and recruits a middleweight boxer, Kelly Robinson (Eddie Murphy), to infiltrate Gundars camp - Gundars is an avid boxing fan. However, Robinson and Scott are like chalk and cheese and so comic action ensues. Finally, in 'The Tuxedo' (2002), Jackie Chan plays Jimmy Tong, an ordinary New York cabbie who has just started an exciting new job as chauffeur to millionaire Clark Devlin (Jason Issacs). When Devlin is injured and taken to hospital, Tong dons the millionaire's hi-tech tuxedo and is miraculously transformed into a martial-arts secret agent with enough gadgets to make James Bond blush. Teaming up with CIA rookie Del Blaine (Jennifer Love Hewitt), Tong then uses his newfound skills to take on various super-villains and prevent them from taking over the world.
