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

Trivia

For a considerable length of time there was a character called Annie; a nice, but not particularly bright girl who worked at the museum. She was deleted from the script because her character played no significant role in the movie. See more »

Goofs

When Bean tries to dry his trousers using the metal fan during their first meeting at the gallery, Grierson asks him to join their conversation. After Bean turns around, Peter MacNicol is clearly trying not to laugh and almost bursts out right before the scene ends. See more »

Quotes

David Langley: Why am I worried about this? You did it! All I gotta do is go tell 'em what happened. But they'll say, "Who left him alone with the picture?" And I'll say, "Me". And they'll say, "You're fired" and I'll say, "Fine". They'll say, "No, no, no, firing's not good enough. Let's prosecute you for negligence". I go to jail, my wife leaves me, my daughter becomes a prostitute, I wind up on death row sharing a cell with Butch McDick!

British farce at its finest!
8 November 2004 | by (Tennessee, U.S) – See all my reviews

This is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen, and in my opinion it is among the ranks of the legendary Monty Python.

"Bean" is about the infamous Mr.Bean, a lazy buffoon who manages to cause problems in even the simplest of tasks. In this movie, he works at an Art Gallery and the management desperately want to get rid of him. Rather than fire him, they send him to Los Angeles to unveil the painting, "Whistler's Mother". An American named David Langley allows Mr.Bean to stay in his house during his visit against the will of his family. This turns out to be a huge mistake.

This movie is roll-out-of-your-chair-laughing funny. Rowan Atkinson's acting is beyond excellent, and all of the other characters are good as well.

The only thing I can find to nitpick about this movie is that there is not a very strong plot. The movie is basically a line of connected humor skits. I personally do not mind this too much, but if you are looking for a movie with a story that can be made into a book, look elsewhere.

If you enjoyed the Mr.Bean series and like "disaster" movies, this is the perfect movie for you!
