Storyline

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 Anonymous

Did You Know?

Trivia

The Chinese title for the movie reads "Han Dou Xian Sheng", which literally means "Foolish Bean Mister", giving the impression that Mr. Bean's name actually comes with "Foolish" (the Chinese character "Han" can mean naive, foolish, silly or simple minded). Therefore in Chinese pop-culture, if you refer to Mr. Bean simply as "Bean" ("Dou", "Dou zi", or "Dou Xian Sheng"), most people would be puzzled, but when you say "Foolish Bean" ("Han Dou"), they would immediately understand your reference.

Great movie
3 July 1999 | by See all my reviews

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.
