Mr. Bean cooks, creates, packs and paints in this new how-to (or at least try-to) series. From chocolate on pizza to painting the Mona Lisa. Watch Bean bumble through three-bean salads and ... See full summary »
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 lyrics of Mr. Bean's (Rowan Atkinson's) and David's (Peter MacNicol's) drunken version of "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" goes: "Row, Row, Row Your Boat Gently Down The Stream / If You See A Crocodile Don't Forget To Scream / Aargh!" See more »
When Bean tries to dry his trousers using the metal fan during their first meeting at the gallery, Grierson asks him to join their conversation. After Bean turns around, Peter MacNicol is clearly trying not to laugh and almost bursts out right before the scene ends. 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 »
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 »
This is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen, and in my opinion it is among the ranks of the legendary Monty Python.
"Bean" is about the infamous Mr.Bean, a lazy buffoon who manages to cause problems in even the simplest of tasks. In this movie, he works at an Art Gallery and the management desperately want to get rid of him. Rather than fire him, they send him to Los Angeles to unveil the painting, "Whistler's Mother". An American named David Langley allows Mr.Bean to stay in his house during his visit against the will of his family. This turns out to be a huge mistake.
This movie is roll-out-of-your-chair-laughing funny. Rowan Atkinson's acting is beyond excellent, and all of the other characters are good as well.
The only thing I can find to nitpick about this movie is that there is not a very strong plot. The movie is basically a line of connected humor skits. I personally do not mind this too much, but if you are looking for a movie with a story that can be made into a book, look elsewhere.
If you enjoyed the Mr.Bean series and like "disaster" movies, this is the perfect movie for you!
