I agree--this is in contention for the best of the Bean shows.
6 November 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While I still think "Do-it-yourself Bean" is the very best show, this one sure comes close and is a delight for the holidays. And, like the best of the series, every time you think the show is giving way to sentiment or showing Bean to be a nice guy, there is a twist and he turns out to be a selfish and clueless jerk.

The show begins with Bean at the department store (I assume it's Harrod's). I won't try to describe all the action here and in the rest of the show, but it's amazing how Rowan Atkinson is able to make so much of just a few stupid props--mainly a nativity set and a few toys. After making a thorough nuisance of himself here, he goes outside to do a bit of shopping with his girlfriend, directs a band, steals Christmas tree, and lots of other craziness.

The next act finds Bean at home preparing for tomorrow--which is Christmas day. Again, I really can't describe it all--you just need to see it. The turkey (which is either fake or an ostrich), the carolers and the exchange of gifts with his soon to be ex-girlfriend. You just have to see it all to believe and appreciate it.

The bottom line is that Bean is very creative here, VERY selfish and totally clueless. Again, you just have to see it all to believe it--and it's a hoot.
