* NotAMask: Johnny overhears the {{Big Bad}}'s plan to set up a fake bishop perform the coronation ceremony. Unfortunately, the villain finds out that Johnny is aware of their plans and scrapes off the fake bishop idea, instead forcing a real bishop to do the job. This leads to an unaware Johnny humiliating the bishop on live tv.

* {{Determinator}}: Conversed. Johnny may be an IdiotHero, but he's determined to do his duty no matter who or what stands in his way, as Lorna puts it.

to:

* {{Determinator}}: Conversed. Johnny may be an IdiotHero, but he's determined to do his duty no matter who or what stands in his way, as Lorna puts it. This applies in spades to Bough as well, particularly since he's got to put up with Johnny's horrible incompetence.


Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsHammy: Sauvage to a T.


Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: For all of his ''many'' faults, Johnny genuinely believes that his job is supposed to be about helping people, and this shows in several circumstances, particularly when he mistakenly encounters a confused-looking elderly patient in a hospital and immediately tries to come to the man's aid.

** The sequel has a RightInFrontOfMe when Johnny fails to recognise the Prime Minister who's seated right next to him. When the PM politely points out his error, Johnny sarcastically comments, "Yeah, right. In your dreams!" A deleted scene has him mistaking Pegasus for his old friends' SexySecretary.

The movie is considered an AffectionateParody of the spy movie genre, oftentimes [[LampshadeHanging hanging lampshades]] on several popular spy tropes, from DisposableLoveInterest characters to the [[MainCharacters protagonist]] being an overwhelmingly [[TheCharmer confident and suave]] badass. It features a hearty plateful of the RuleOfFunny, [[NoodleImplements a nice smattering of]] {{slapstick}}, at least a gallon jug's worth of GenreSavvy, and even a light pinch of SelfDeprecation. And Creator/RowanAtkinson.
