"My flexible friend!"
5 March 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Old-school British comedy generally had a bad time of it in the 1990's; the B.B.C. and I.T.V. dumped the likes of Russ Abbot, Little & Large, Cannon & Ball, and Terry & June. Spike Milligan was mainly confined to chat-shows, and Les Dawson and Les Dennis only stayed on air by fronting game-shows. An exception to the rule was Rowan Atkinson's splendid 'Mr.Bean', which basically consisted of clever visual comedy ( with minimal dialogue ). 'Curse' was the third broadcast episode. Mr.Bean goes to a swimming baths, and climbs to the highest diving board, only to then suffer vertigo. Luckily, two young lads are on hand to ensure he makes it into the water ( one of them stamps on his fingers ). Next, our hero has lunch in the park, assembling a sandwich from ingredients found on his person, and ingeniously using a credit card as a knife. Finally, with mousy girlfriend 'Irma' ( Matilda Ziegler ) in tow, he goes to see a horror movie and struggles to watch it without openly displaying terror.

All good stuff. When I.T.V.-3 repeated this a few years ago, it deleted the scene where Bean ( sans swimming trunks ) emerges from the pool, and runs into a pack of schoolgirls. I have the feeling that it will someday find its way into Channel 4's 'It Was Alright In The 1990's'. I can see it now: "Look, viewers! A nude man and schoolgirls together! Disgusting! Just shows how much television has changed for the better! Thank goodness for the sophisticated wit of Dapper Laughs!".

Funniest moment - in the cinema, Bean pulls his sweater over his face to avoid looking at the screen. When the lights come on, Irma looks at him and screams!
