Storyline

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. Heading in the direction of Cannes, Bean finds himself in the cast and disrupting... Written by Brian Greenhalgh

Crazy Credits

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.

Bean 2 is another quality Mr. Bean adventure by the great comedy genius that is Rowan Atkinson, a movie that is sure to put the smiles on our faces
30 March 2007 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

After a quiet last couple of years, Rowan Atkinson returns to the big screen in what will probably be the last outing for Mr. Bean.

Mr. Bean's Holiday sees Bean head off to the South of France after winning a prize in a save-the-church raffle, where, as you can imagine, things don't exactly go to plan as he stumbles across problems in actually getting there. On his travels, he meets the son of a Cannes Film Festival judge (Baldry), his father, a beautiful actress (de Caunes) and a selfish film director (Defoe). The Cannes Film Festival is used to bring the characters together at the film's end in some hilarious final scenes.

Don't go into this expecting something along the lines of the original Bean movie. Bean 2 has less talking and Mr. Bean probably works better with only the odd word. Fewer characters allow for this. The movie has a feel of less like the Ultimate Disaster movie and more like an extension of one of his TV shows, not completely however – it still has many differences.

I am a huge fan of Mr. Bean, having watched all the TV shows from a young age. No work of Atkinson as Bean has ever disappointed and this movie certainly does not either. If I am being critical, I would go as far as saying that the original disaster movie was better – that had more of the feel of a feature film. This was still great however, and if you really like Bean, you will not stop laughing in Mr. Bean's Holiday; I certainly did not.

Willem Dafoe was great in the small role that he had and the kid, Max Baldry wasn't too bad either whilst the performance by good looking French actress, Emma de Caunes was quite good too.

I guess you could put Mr. Bean in any situation and it would still be great. I know the chances of Rowan Atkinson coming back again to play Bean are low, but, I would be so pleased if he could make another movie, or even a few more TV shows.

Rowan Atkinson is pure comedy genius and Mr. Bean's Holiday is great fun for the whole family.

Excellent Movie - 10/10.
