Storyline

Bean (Rowan Atkinson) 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 the U.S., to the small Los Angeles art gallery instead, where he'll have to officiate at the opening of the greatest U.S. picture ever (called "Whistler's Mother").

Trivia

In the series there is a scene in which Mr. Bean (Rowan Atkinson) takes an art class but can't stand to look at the nude model so he places a clay bra, he made himself, over her breasts. A similar idea was proposed for the movie for a scene in the Royal National Gallery (the British museum at which Mr. Bean works at the beginning of the movie) in which Mr. Bean tries to conceal various nude art forms from three young girls.

Goofs

When Bean accidentally launches the glass swan across the room from the stereo, it deflects off the picture and, not only knocks it to the floor, but also puts a large crack in it, just above the middle. However, in the next scene when it falls, the crack is suddenly changed to being on the top edge. See more »

Quotes

Kevin Langley: I can't sleep. I can'e stop thinking about naked women. What about you?
Mr. Bean: Whistler's Mother.
Kevin Langley: Well, whatever turns you on!

Crazy Credits

After the in-credit Working Title Films logo, Bean appears on the screen: "Yes, I normally stay to the end as well," followed by some more remarks to the leaving audience. See more »

Alternate Versions

When broadcast on American Television in 2000, the scene of Mr. Bean giving people the finger was replaced by a scene of him ordering a hotdog with 'everything' on it. Bean then holds the hotdog to his mouth open wide as David takes a picture of him. When he finally is about to eat the hotdog, he pauses, looks at what's been put on it, smells it, and recoils with a look of nausea. See more »

User Reviews

Average but warm-hearted comedy
31 December 2006 | by DVD_ConnoisseurSee all my reviews

"Bean" is the average but warm-hearted, large screen adventure of Rowan Atkinson's bumbling but strangely likable character.

With a smörgåsbord of talent behind this film, there are a few genuine laughs but, sadly, they're few and far between. This film could have been so much better in the hands of another director. Mel Smith appears to have been on cruise-control making this movie. It's a case of comedy by numbers and the film never seems to shift gear.

The always amusing Peter MacNicol is excellent as the suffering David Langley and provides the perfect foil to Atkinson's Bean.

An average comedy movie, it's worth a viewing if there's nothing else on the television.
