Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): The painting around which the film revolves is referred to universally as "Arrangement in Grey and Black, Portrait Of The Artist's Mother" by art galleries (the first part being Whistler's original title for the painting), not "Portrait of Whistler's Mother".See more »

Bean may not have the magic, that the t.v show had, but it's still a great family film, and miles above, Bean's Holiday., 14 January 2010
Author: callanvass

I have always enjoyed Bean. I always thought it was criminally underrated as well. Now let me just state, I did enjoy Bean's Holiday quite a bit, but I was kinda disappointed with it, considering it's suppose to be the last of Bean. Yes it still has too many adapted scenes, from his T.V show, but what I enjoyed about this movie, was the movie itself. Bean is a little different in this one. He's not quite as mean-spirited as he is in the t.v show, in fact he has a big heart, which we rarely see in his t.v show. What really makes a lot of the movie is Rowan&Peter MacNicol's chemistry, together. Rowan of course is the goofy one, with Peter playing the straight man. They play off one another so wonderfully, and give many hilarious moments together. Some may have disliked the changes to having Bean speak a bit in this film, and while they do have a point, I thought it added a little bit of spark to the film, it was different, and gave the film laughs. With so much vulgar comedies out now a days, Bean is a refreshing change of pace.

There are a few vulgar moments, but it's all good-natured. The funniest of the scenes in my opinion, had to be when Bean goes to turn the taps on, and splashes water on his pants, to where it looks like he's Peed himself. I won't spoil the rest, but rest assured, it's a screamer. What I also enjoyed more about Bean, then Bean's Holiday was it's much more like the t.v show, then the sequel was. Bean's Holiday never really felt like Bean, besides Bean had the most important ingredient in the ending, we got to see Teddy!. Bean is light-hearted, with great slapstick all around. I'll take anything of Bean I can get, which is why I enjoyed Bean's holiday, more than I should have.

Performances. Rowan Atkinson is terrific as Bean. He's added another pro to his Bean shtick, speaking!. I thought having him speak, would ruin a lot of the experience. Thankfully it gave the film a lot of laughs. Peter MacNicol is a very multi talented person. Here he plays a wonderful straight man, with some of the film's funniest lines. He was just as big a key as Rowan was. Pamela Reed does fine with what she had to do as the wife. Burt Reynolds has a hilarious cameo, as the general. Andrew Lawrence is actually decent as Kevin. As I have stated in many review, I hate kid actors, but he was rather likable. Harris Yulin is a likable character actor. Here he is great as Mr.Grierson. Tricia Vessey is highly unlikable as Jennifer. I found it very hard to garner any sympathy from her. Richard Gant is hilarious as the detective, and stole many of the scenes he was in. Sandra Oh and Larry Drake have small roles.

Bottom Line. Bean is the perfect family entertainment. Fellow Bean fanatics will find much to enjoy, and people who aren't too familiar with Bean's humor, this would probably be a good starting point for you. Highly recommended.
