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
In the German version of the film, Rowan Atkinson and Peter McNichol were not dubbed over in the scene which Mr. Bean and David drunkenly sings "Yesterday" by Wet Wet Wet and "Row, Row, Row Your Boat". See more »

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 »
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
How can anyone not LOVE this movie. It has to be the greatest comedy made in the 1990s. IT HAS TO BE. Rowan Atkinson is an incredible slapstick comedian. He is one of the great comedy performers of all time, ranking alongside Chaplin, Keaton, Fields, The Marxes, Tati, Brooks and Allen. This was a really popular movie when it was released in the Spring of 1997-and with good reason. If there could ONLY be more movies like this. I'm a big fan of Atkinson's TV shows MR BEAN, BLACKADDER and of course THE THIN BLUE LINE. Do yourself a favor and see this movie!
