While not all secret agents embody the sophistication and suaveness of 007, they still manage to solve the case, often in spite of themselves. In Johnny English, Rowan Atkinson plays an ungainly member of the British Secret Service sent to protect the Royal Family. Steve Martin takes on the role of a clumsy French crime fighter in an updated version of The Pink Panther.
