Storyline

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 Brian Greenhalgh

Crazy Credits

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.

Bean Baby.
27 December 2007 | by tfrizzellSee all my reviews

The outlandish titled character (Rowan Atkinson) returns after a 10-year hiatus for this laugh-out-loud comedy. This time our hero wins a ticket to Cannes in France. Just wanting to go to the beach, Atkinson is totally oblivious of the International Film Festival that is taking place there. Thus there are crazy circumstances aplenty with a lovely French actress (the illuminating Emma de Caunes), a pompous American superstar (played superbly by the Willem Dafoe), and a young boy (Max Baldry) who Atkinson unwittingly separated from his parents. "Mr. Bean's Holiday" is one of the best fair films I have ever seen. I really like the movie, but I am a fan of the character Atkinson portrays so well and also of the original television series from Britain which ran sporadically in the late-1980s and early-1990s. With all this said, typical audiences could get little to nothing out of a production like this. Much like "Bean" way back in 1997, the tone is uneven and the translation from television to cinema is hit and miss at best. I like "Mr. Bean's Holiday", but critically I would be lying if I said it is better than average. 2.5 out of 5 stars.
