Johnny English, an employee of the British Intelligence Service MI7, dreams of becoming a spy number 1 (Agent One), in turn overcoming security barriers (with guard dogs, snipers .. .) and in the end being restrained by a beautiful woman with a gun. Johnny English disables the opponent with a romantic gesture and the two move closer to each other to kiss when English is awakened by his assistant Angus Bough to prepare documents for Agent One. After Agent One accepted the mission, he promptly informed the command center that a criminal organization was plotting to aim at the Queen of England's crown, but had not been able to investigate clearly before it was eliminated. During Agent One's funeral, English silently let a built-in bomb fall into the funeral home and explode and all MI7 spies were killed, except Johnny English and his assistant Angus Bough. At the request of the British Prime Minister, MI7 Director, codenamed Pegasus, had to appoint the only agent remaining, Johnny English, as the main investigator for this case.
