Life is a difficult challenge for Mr Bean, who despite being a grown adult, has trouble completing even the simplest of tasks. Thankfully, his perseverence is usually rewarded, and he finds an ingenious way around the problem.
Mr. Bean enters a church raffle and wins a vacation trip to France as well as a camcorder. After boarding a Eurostar train and arriving in Paris, the French language proves a barrier for Bean, as he struggles to get across the city to catch a train to the south of France from the Gare de Lyon. Taking time to order a meal, he finds the consumption of a seafood platter to be a challenge. Just before catching his train, he asks Emil, a Russian film director on his way to be a judge at the Cannes Film festival to use his camcorder to record his boarding, but accidentally causes Emil being left behind at the station. Bean attempts to cheer up the director's son Stepan as the train continues south but matters are made more hectic by the fact that Emil has reported his son to have been kidnapped and Bean losing his wallet and essential travel documents at a pay phone where he and Stepan attempt to contact Emil.

The final Mr. Bean story. Rowan Atkinson decided that the film would be his last time playing Mr. Bean because he had felt he was going too old to play Mr. Bean and it was time for him to move on the role. However, Atkinson would play Mr. Bean again in "Bondi Rescue", the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony and in a 2015 "Comic Relief" sketch to celebrate the show's 25th anniversary. See more »
When Bean disconnects the power to the effects board to charge his camcorder, there is a delay of about ten minutes while another attempt is made at shooting the advert. During this time the camcorder is fully charged and the effects board is reconnected, however it would take around two hours for the camcorder to fully charge. See more »

Although it doesn't really relate to anything in the movie, there is one final scene at the very end of the credits; We see Bean filming through his Video Camera and Writing Fin in the sand (which means "The End" in French) with a final look through the camera, the water comes up and washes the word anyway...just as the battery on the camera finally runs out...with the screen going black.

I remember when I saw the first movie at the theater in 1997. I and my friend gave an applause when credit titles started.. and everybody in the theater joined us. The local newspaper critic was there too and mention about is on his analysis. It was a nice movie, however not as good as the TV-series.
You can imagine how much I've been waiting for this next film. And was it worth it? This movie made me happy. I recommend it to anybody who's looking for a good hearted, funny movie and has enjoyed Mr Beans adventures before. It's more like the TV-shows than the previous movie. Less talk, more action.
With a Russian kid (Max Baldry), French girl (cute Emma de Caunes) and British Mr Bean language barrier gives many jokes.
One thing was missing from this silver screen version however: it didn't have the scene where Mr Bean destroys a laptop on a train.. it was shown on a trailer. Shame, it gave me good laughs. I suppose it'll come with DVD.
