Life is a difficult challenge for Mr Bean, who despite being a grown adult, has trouble completing even the simplest of tasks. Thankfully, his perseverence is usually rewarded, and he finds an ingenious way around the problem.
Mr. Bean wins a trip to Cannes where he unwittingly separates a young boy from his father and must help the two come back together. On the way he discovers France, bicycling, and true love, among other things.
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
Various skits from the Mr. Bean (1990) TV show are featured in the movie, like: On an airplane, Mr. Bean blows up a barf bag full of barf and then pops it; a turkey gets stuck on his head; gets bored on a fast ride; has a mishap with the painting (in the series it is a library book). See more »
You can see Jennifer's mouth move after Bean shakes her in the hospital bed. (She is supposed to be in a "deep sleep"). See more »
For those of you who loved watching Mr Bean, this movie doesn't fail to disappoint you. I saw this last night and laughed my head off, in fact, I think I was laughing more than when I was seeing Johnny English(also starring Atkinson).
For those who really love the TV series, a few of the gags have been redone, including the vomit bag joke, the turkey head and the fast ride (the latter is so damn funny).
So if you love Rowan Atkinson or love Mr Bean, go see this film!
