In an uncertain world, few things are as dependable as the British Secret Service. World-renowned for the calibre of it's agents, the cutting-edge technology utilized in it's weaponry and it's international intelligence-gathering web, it is one of the last bastions of honour manned with committed defenders of 'the truth.'
So when an unthinkable plan to filch the country's beloved Crown Jewels comes to the Service's attention, the best man for the job, the creme de la creme of the organization's supersleuths, Agent Number One, is quickly assigned to the case.
...And is almost as quickly dispatched to six feet under.
Unfortunately for the British Secret Service, virtually every other able member of its esteemed ranks soon joins Agent Number One in the afterworld....nasty business, bombing a funeral.
Who could be behind such a diabolical plot? Perhaps the same twisted mind bent on stealing the Crown Jewels?
Now, there is only one man remaining who can even hope to protect his country, avenge the elimination of all of the Secret Service's spies and uncover the fiend behind the fiendish plot to make off with the lasting symbols of the once supreme British empire, the Crown Jewels.
Enter Johnny English.
He knows no fear.
He knows no danger.
He knows nothing.

All of England's hopes are resting on English.
He isn't the best they have...he's the only one left.
