A little documentary which simply chronicles the story behind the television series "Mr. Bean" (1989) and the film Bean (1997), released that year. It tells the story of Rowan Atkinson and shows clips of him as a child, as well as shows skits from "Not the Nine O'Clock News" (1979) and "Black Adder, The" (1983) and, of course, sketches from the Mr. Bean series and clips from the film.

Not quite as informative as I had wanted, but it's a great look at Rowan's career.
Perhaps i'm being a bit over-picky but there was a few times where I wanted more background of the character of Mr. Bean. Seeing Rowan's childhood, his early comedic stuff was great, no doubt about that but I really wanted more about Bean sometimes. That being said Rowan gives us a great insightful look on how the Bean character started, and even gives us some cool little behind the scenes of the filming of some of the episodes|Hair by Mr. Bean of London| was especially cool. I enjoyed most of the interviews from Rowan's colleagues and it gave us some great detail of his earlier career too. Rowan seems like a very quiet, yet humble man who has not let his success get to his head.
Bottom line. Bean and Rowan fans will love this like I did for the most part, now let's get an up to date one!.
