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").
Mr. Bean's (Rowan Atkinson's) girlfriend Irma Gobb (Matilda Ziegler) from the television series does not appear in this movie nor its sequel. Mr. Bean's teddy is only seen at the end of this movie. See more »
The painting around which the film revolves is referred to universally as "Arrangement in Grey and Black, Portrait Of The Artist's Mother" by art galleries (the first part being Whistler's original title for the painting), not "Portrait of Whistler's Mother". See more »
I've given my life to art and from here on in, the only art I will get anywhere near are the pictures I draw on the pavement hoping passersby will throw nickels in my hat. I guess the long on the short of it: I wish I'd never been born.

Version shown on cable in the People's Republic of China (April, 1999) are uncut save for the scenes of Bean experimenting with "giving the finger" to people on the streets of LA. All scenes of him giving this gesture are cut from the film, an edit all the more perplexing as one of these scenes is shown in an advert for the movie. See more »
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.
