Not quite as informative as I had wanted, but it's a great look at Rowan's career.
13 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

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!.

9/10
