Review – Silly Spy (“Johnny English Strikes Again”)

Now, I know what you’re thinkin’. Who’s Johnny English? He’s that little known Rowan Atkinson character from his 2003 & 2011 movies that nobody remembers.

A bidding war ensued between Netflix and Warner Bros and, originally meant to be a straight-to-cable release, the studios opted out for a theatrical offering to the public. Thanks, guys!…
