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.
Mr. Bean enters a church raffle and wins a vacation trip to France as well as a camcorder. After boarding a Eurostar train and arriving in Paris, the French language proves a barrier for Bean, as he struggles to get across the city to catch a train to the south of France from the Gare de Lyon. Taking time to order a meal, he finds the consumption of a seafood platter to be a challenge. Just before catching his train, he asks Emil, a Russian film director on his way to be a judge at the Cannes Film festival to use his camcorder to record his boarding, but accidentally causes Emil being left behind at the station. Bean attempts to cheer up the director's son Stepan as the train continues south but matters are made more hectic by the fact that Emil has reported his son to have been kidnapped and Bean losing his wallet and essential travel documents at a pay phone where he and Stepan attempt to contact Emil. Heading in the direction of Cannes, Bean finds himself in the cast and disrupting...Written by
After being dropped off at La Défense by the Parisian taxi by accident, Bean decides to walk to the Gare de Lyon in a straight line, following his compass. In real life, this is roughly a 2.5 hour (12 km) walk. The taxi ride from Gare du Nord to Gare de Lyon would be roughly 15 minutes (4.5 km). It's also worth mentioning that the taxi took Bean on a considerable longer "scenic" route, as it is seen driving past the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, and Arc de Triomphe in that order. All of these monuments (except for the Arc de Triomphe) are considerably further south from the "ideal" taxi route from Gare du Nord to La Défense. See more »
When Mr. Bean is hanging from the Projection room window he is wearing his normal shoes. However he went into the projection room dressed as a woman. While it's shown he had his own clothes rolled up inside the ladies clothing, his shoes were not. The only thing in his handbag was the Camcorder. See more »

Although it doesn't really relate to anything in the movie, there is one final scene at the very end of the credits; We see Bean filming through his Video Camera and writing "Fin" in the sand (which means "The End" in French) with a final look through the camera, the water comes up and washes the word anyway...just as the battery on the camera finally runs out...with the screen going black.

Several scenes were deleted from US theatrical prints, such as Bean licking the spilled coffee in the laptop and Bean getting his tie stuck in the vending machine. These scenes were restored for the DVD. See more »
Mr. Bean's Holdiay was a movie I really enjoyed. Mr. Bean was back in true form, and delivered an unexpectedly funny movie. Part of Mr. Bean's humor is when something is about to happen, you can see it from a mile away, and you yell at the screen "look out Mr. Bean!" or "He left it on the counter! Oh No!" or what have you. There is plenty of this,but there is also a great deal of irony and clever wordplay in it as well. It's a well rounded comedy movie, that will be funny to children and adults alike. I'm not really a big Mr. Bean fan, but I really liked this movie anyway, and I know that most people will too, if they give it a chance. I will definitely recommend this movie to my friends, and to anyone who reads this review.
