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

In the series, there is a scene in which Mr Bean takes an art class, but can't stand to look at the nude model, so he places clay over her breasts; a similar idea was proposed for the movie for a scene in the Royal National Gallery (i.e. the British museum that Mr Bean works for at the beginning of the movie) in which Mr Bean tries to conceal various nude art forms from three young girls.

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

Bernice Schimmel: I genuinely believe that we could get Jon Bon Jovi.
David Langley: Jon Bon Jovi? To unveil, "Whistler's Mother"?
Bernice Schimmel: Yes.
David Langley: I've got nothing against Jon Bon Jovi. The man has had two great hairstyles in the last ten years, which is an achievement not to be sniffed at. But so far as I know, Mr Jovi knows absolutely nothing about 19th-century Impressionism.

Successful transformation to the big screen
2 March 2001 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Warning:Plot Giveaways

Bean the movie is a triumph in the cinema world. For once a film based on the T.V. series has worked. It may be the case the best jokes are altered versions of what appeared on the small screen but are slotted into the story line with immense skill. Just before Bean gets the Turkey stuck on his head when asked had he cooked a turkey before he nods his head in an unsure "mmmm" mannner.

The best thing about Bean the movie is the for once it is the Americans who are made to look stupid. Whereas in many movies the British are the joke being portrayed as posh in Bean it the Americans who are laughed at for being simply to stupid to realise this so called doctor bean is in fact not a doctor.

On hearing Mr Bean was hitting the big screen I was at first very concerned that it would not work for him to talk . However many of the funniest lines are when he does open his mouth such as when he calls a 50 million dollar painting a big picture of an old bat.

Very recommended
