Trivia

Rowan Atkinson has a stutter which requires him to stress very carefully when saying words beginning with "B." This explains the odd way that Bean pronounces his own name. See more »

CANNOT STOP LAUGHING WHEN WATCHING THIS SERIES
28 February 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Mr. Bean is funny purely and simply because he is a total buffoon. There's not much dialogue in this film but it's enjoyable to watch Bean's facial expressions and the situations he ends up in.

A lot of funny scenes take place in his car (how he passed a driving test is beyond me). In one episode he brushes his teeth and gets dressed-whilst he is driving.

Another funny thing is that Mr Bean doesn't seem to have much family or friends-except for his teddy bear. Bean is fiercely protective of his teddy bear and it makes me laugh watching scenes with him in.

I could go into detail about other funny scenes in the series but all I'll say is go out and buy the videos. They really are amusing.
