Corrected entry: In the scene where Johnny has just been fired and he walks glumly away, rain suddenly starts. When we get a second shot of Lorna in the window, there is no reflection of rain. (00:53:00)
Corrected entry: In the film, when Johnny and Bough have to enter into Sauvage's skyscraper headquarters, there is an identical building next to it which is the city hospital. There is actually only one of these buildings, not two; it is One Canada Square, the tallest building in Britain.
Corrected entry: When Lorna is ejected she is seat belted to the seat. But when she lands in the pool, there is no seat.
Corrected entry: Even though Johnny carries a gun in the movie, he never actually succeeds in firing it.
Corrected entry: When Johnny eats the sea urchin in the sushi bar, you can hear it crunch. Sea urchins have no crunchy bits in the meat.
Corrected entry: Despite the impression that the theft of the Crown Jewels in the scene in the Tower seems to take place sometime in the evening, Johnny starts his investigations the morning after. Even more amazing is the fact that the baddies are still there packing their cases.
Corrected entry: The Johnny English and Bough characters are based on characters portrayed in Barclaycard adverts in the mid 1990s. The actor who plays Bough in the adverts is not the same actor who portrays him in the film, and Rowan Atkinson's character was actually called Stuart Latham in the ads, not Johnny English.
Corrected entry: When Johnny and Bough find the two sidekicks with the crown jewels there is a mistake. As one of the sidekicks puts the coffin into the hearse and gets into the car, he is the only person in the car. The scene then cuts to the car driving out of the building and the two sidekicks can be seen. (00:21:30)
Corrected entry: In Sauvage's Palace, when Johnny drops the DVD after taking it out of the projector, he actually picks up two disks, and places them in his pocket.
Corrected entry: When Johnny ejects Lorna out of the car, why does it eject the passenger seat? Surely the driver is the one who should be ejected first.?
Corrected entry: When Johnny and Bough are in the chase scene with the pick-up, they go past the speed camera and (1) it flashes 0Y02 USH, which is Johnny's number plate, surely it would do the speeding car, not the hovering one, and (2) it takes a photo of the front of Johnny, even though a speed camera takes the photo of the back of a car.
Corrected entry: When the crowning of John Malkovich takes place, it seems to be in the day time. The camera reguarly takes us outside the palace where the crowning is taking place. The camera also takes us to different locations around the world, namely India and Australia. In the Australian scene you see a bunch of blokes from the outback laughing at the TV in the broad daylight. The last time I checked, we only had one sun in our solar system. (01:10:30 - 01:14:10)
Corrected entry: When Johnny is holding up the nurses at the hospital and Bough asks him if he is "coming over here soon?" Bough appears to be on the same level as Johnny. In an earlier scene, Bough says that he is entering on the 12th floor, while Johnny is on the 14th. He should be looking down at Bough, not straight across.
Corrected entry: In the dark tunnel, we hear Johnny say that if one supposedly chants in E Flat, they will be able to find their way along in the dark, but it must only be E Flat. Why then does he break into singing "Thank you for the music"?
Corrected entry: At the opening ceremony for the Crown Jewels, the lights were cut out, and English ran to the corner to seize a champagne bottle and knock out a worker there. In his haste to hide his error, English puts the bottle back on the table, behind his back. In later shots, the bottle is seen back in the ice bucket. (00:13:50 - 00:14:55)
