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").
The stereo, with which Mr. Bean inadvertently breaks the glass swan and the picture, is a JVC PC-X55 CD portable system, and the remote which it uses is a Sony RM-DC41 CD player remote control. See more »
When David fears for his career after seeing the ruined painting, he incorrectly claims that he left Bean alone with the picture. It was in fact Grierson who advised him to stay. David only agreed with him; he didn't actually make the suggestion. See more »
Well sir, an unorthodox start; but I never expected things with a man of your calibre to be normal. I must confess I've never actually read any of your work. Tell me doctor, what exactly is your position at the gallery?
I sit in the corner... and look at the paintings.
Ach! That is brilliant! If only more scholars would do that, not lecture and write and argue, but just sit and look at the paintings themselves. Now that is brilliant.

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.

Mr. Bean (Rowan Atkinson) is a London museum guard who is about to be fired by middle management. The big boss, however, won't hear of it; instead, he sends Mr. Bean to America. Once there, Mr. Bean is to pose as an art critic and give a rousing speech about Whistler's mother for a California art museum. Well, the museum director picks Mr. Bean up at the airport and pandemonium is the name of the game after that. Mr. Bean upsets the director's household, creates havoc at a local amusement park, blows up dinner and more. On top of that, he rarely speaks so everyone is certain he is an idiot. Can this man transform himself into an art critic and will he be able to present a speech on the museum's big day?
This movie is just flat-out fun. Although he has very little dialogue, Mr. Bean's expressions and antics are priceless. The supporting cast does a reasonably good job but Mr. Bean towers over everybody. This movie should be required viewing for anyone in a depressed state of mind; it can lift the spirits of even the saddest beings on earth. Recommended for a fine family evening of giggles and leg-slapping.
