Slapstick, but gross-out humor.

Rowan Atkinson's recalcitrant TV character is the hub of this 1997 feature that will disappoint fans and nonfans alike.

Atkinson's reactive brand of bug-eyed and near-silent comedy has always been more akin to Jacques Tati--plus a lecherous pinch of Jerry Lewis, the better to invade the viewer's personal space.

Atkinson is able to hit the comic jackpot through grunts, gestures, body movements, and, most of all, facial expressions.

Atkinson's genius at portraying a pesky, childish adult is reminiscent of the great comic stars of silent movies, Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin.

The film is little more than a showcase for Atkinson's broad slapstick comedy, overdone facial contortions, and bathroom humor.

I'm pretty sure that I can say it's not a great movie; I'm not so certain I can say it wasn't a funny one.

Not only do we not care about Bean, we want him to just go away and not bother us anymore.
