If we had to guess, the split between serious spy movies and funny spy movies (or flat-out dumb spy movies) has to be pretty equal. That's probably because the most famous spy franchise of all time, James Bond, likely has as many spoofs as it does sequels!

That's why we've decided to make a definitive list of all the funniest spy movie characters. Whether it's Johnny English (played by Rowan Atkinson) fumbling about town or Detective Frank Drebin (played by the late, great Leslie Nielsen) who somehow always seems to solve the case even though he can’t solve where he last parked the car, these spy characters are known for making audiences laugh. Which spy characters do you think are the funniest?

Vote up the funniest spy characters and add your own if they’re missing.
