Mr. Bean wins a trip to Cannes where he unwittingly separates a young boy from his father and must help the two come back together. On the way he discovers France, bicycling, and true love, among other things.
Life is a difficult challenge for Mr Bean, who despite being a grown adult, has trouble completing even the simplest of tasks. Thankfully, his perseverance is usually rewarded, and he finds an ingenious way around the problem.
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 series, there is a scene in which Mr Bean takes an art class, but can't stand to look at the nude model, so he places clay over her breasts; a similar idea was proposed for the movie for a scene in the Royal National Gallery (i.e. the British museum that Mr Bean works for at the beginning of the movie) in which Mr Bean tries to conceal various nude art forms from three young girls.

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 »
Why am I worried about this? You did it! All I gotta do is go tell 'em what happened. But they'll say, "Who left him alone with the picture?" And I'll say, "Me". And they'll say, "You're fired" and I'll say, "Fine". They'll say, "No, no, no, firing's not good enough. Let's prosecute you for negligence". I go to jail, my wife leaves me, my daughter becomes a prostitute, I wind up on death row sharing a cell with Butch McDick!

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 »
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.
