Storyline

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").

Alternate Versions

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 »

Great movie
3 July 1999 | by chris-474See 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.
