Storyline

Bean works as a caretaker at Britain's formidable Royal National Gallery, and his bosses want to fire him because he sleeps at work all the time, but can't because the chairman of the gallery's board defends him. They send him to USA, to the small Los Angeles art gallery instead, where he'll have to officiate at the opening of the greatest US picture ever (called "Whistler's Mother"). Written by Anonymous

User Reviews

Average but warm-hearted comedy
31 December 2006 | by (England) – See all my reviews

"Bean" is the average but warm-hearted, large screen adventure of Rowan Atkinson's bumbling but strangely likable character.

With a smörgåsbord of talent behind this film, there are a few genuine laughs but, sadly, they're few and far between. This film could have been so much better in the hands of another director. Mel Smith appears to have been on cruise-control making this movie. It's a case of comedy by numbers and the film never seems to shift gear.

The always amusing Peter MacNicol is excellent as the suffering David Langley and provides the perfect foil to Atkinson's Bean.

An average comedy movie, it's worth a viewing if there's nothing else on the television.
