Double bill of comedy farce starring Rowan Atkinson. 'Johnny English' is a James Bond spoof in which 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. 'Bean: The Ultimate Disaster Movie' sees Rowan Atkinson in a reprisal of his role as the hapless Mr Bean. Bean has somehow mangaed to obtain a job as an attendant at the National Gallery in London, but the gallery's governors are keen to be rid of him. When the Grierson Gallery in Los Angeles asks for an expert to give a speech on the recently-purchased painting of Whistler's Mother, Bean is quickly despatched. On his arrival in America he begins wreaking havoc in the art world.
