Bean works as a caretaker at Britain's formidable Royal National Gallery, and his bosses want to fire him because he sleeps at work all the time, but can't because the chairman of the gallery's board defends him. They send him to USA, to the small Los Angeles art gallery instead, where he'll have to officiate at the opening of the greatest US picture ever (called "Whistler's Mother").Written by
The making coffee scene was reused from Canned Laughter (1979) which Rowan Atkinson wrote and starred in. See more »
From his side of the one-way window in the police station, Bean's tie appears straight and tidy with only the 'large' end on show. However from the police perspective on the other side of the window his tie is lop-sided with both ends clearly visible across his shirt. See more »

Home and dry.
Where did you put the original?

[clap his hand on David's shoulder suddenly]
Mr.Langley, can I have a word?

Just before the credits of the featurette is a montage of little bit scenes cut which include the following:
Bean strangling his chairman's secretary at the beginning of the film
Bean playing with the many light switches in the Langley household
Bean trying to skateboard for the first time at a playground
Bean pulling all of the furniture in his apartment against the door by way of strings. One can only assume this is Bean's idea of security for his apartment.
Bean and David riding around Los Angeles more
Bean and David posing for a picture at the fairgrounds
Bean asking for a hot dog with a bit of everything on it and posing for a photo.
Bean taking one last picture of David before he boards the plane back home. He motions for David to move back. David backs up so much he ends ups falling over a large pile of luggage
Bean wearing sunglasses and holding a sign that reads 'Jack Nicholson'. He is obviously posing for a picture as he grins like Nicholson and points to the sign and then himself.
Bean doing a Broadway-like dance with a fedora hat on the steps outside his workplace
More shots of Bean giving the finger to everyone
Bean drinking Champagne while flying to America and then making faces after sampling some
Bean with the turkey stuck on his head actually walking outside the Langley house and nearly getting hit by a car and then falling in a bush
Although the storyline is quite different to the usual ones in the tv show, the movie still captures the clumsiness and total annoyingness of the character of Mr Bean. Rowan Atkinson is great and so are the other actors in the film. I really enjoyed this, probably more because it wasn't a disaster like the tv show usually is. In other words Bean didn't stuff up as much. there were some great scenes involving the painting and in the hospital. I recommend it to those comedy fans and for anybody who can withstand the lunatic behaviour of Mr Bean.
