Johnny English

Deliberate mistake: When you see one of Pascal's henchmen turn off the power, he is wearing a black suit. In the reflection of the glass on the power box, you can see 'Police' written on the jacket. The filmmaker chose this suit because it was black, thinking no one would see the police logo on it.

Continuity mistake: When Pascal's henchmen infiltrate Buckingham Palace, and force the Queen to abdicate, if you look very closely on the abdication document it is dated the twentieth of March 2003. Yet in an earlier scene where Johnny English is photographed by the speed camera that has the date 21/03/03, obviously the abdication was filmed before the car chase, and therefore the dates get mixed up.

Lorna Campbell: You obviously haven't met our host, Pascal Sauvage.
Johnny English: Oh! Thank God! You know, I think I'd rather have my bottom impaled on a giant cactus than exchange pleasantries with that jacked up Frenchman. In my opinion, the only thing the French should be allowed to host is an invasion.
