In his latest misadventure, Mr. Bean-the nearly wordless misfit who seems to be followed by a trail of pratfalls and hijinks-goes on holiday to the French Riviera and becomes ensnared in a European adventure of cinematic proportions. Tired of the dreary, wet London weather, Bean packs up his suitcase and camcorder to head to Cannes for some sun on the beach. Ah…vacation. But his trip doesn’t go as smoothly as he had hoped when the bumbling Bean falls face first into a series of mishaps and fortunate coincidences, far-fetched enough to make his own avant-garde film. Wrongly thought to be both kidnapper and acclaimed filmmaker, he has some serious explaining to do after wreaking havoc across the French countryside and arriving at his vacation spot with a Romanian filmmaker’s precocious son and an aspiring actress in tow. Will Bean be arrested by the gendarmes or end up winning the Palme d’Or? It’s all caught on camera as Atkinson again applies his awkward athleticism to a comedy of errors in Mr. Bean’s Holiday.

One comment

  • You need to know nothing about Mr Bean to understand and enjoy this film, as it makes no references to the earlier film or any of the TV shows. Bean, as usual, says very little during the film and relies on visual gags and facial expressions to convey the story and the humour.
    But in my opinion “Mr. Bean’s Holiday” is not funny enough, which everyone expects it should give us a good laugh. Also, it lacks creativity, comparing to “Johnny English”, the former film performed by Rowan Atkinson. The reason for not being funny enough is closely related to the lack of creativity.
    Still, there were some memorable scenes here, but like the first Bean movie, this one cannot match the classic show.
    Conclusion: Only if you like Mr. Bean a lot, you’ll like this one too…
