I thought some parts of "Bean" were hilarious. Some of the best parts are when Mr. Bean gets his head stuck in a chicken and when he puts laxative in a security guard's cup of coffee and then switches the keys around, thus the guard won't know which one is the key to the bathroom.
Some parts of "Bean" are corny, but most of the movie is hilarious. If you like comedy movies, "Bean" would be a good one to see. NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2000.
There is a wonderful scene, for example, where Bean sneezes on the painting of Whistler's Mother, and then he tries to wipe off the spray with his handkerchief, which has been smeared with a leaky pen. So the painting gets smeared with ink, and he grabs the first can he sees off a nearby shelf, which happens to be paint thinner. It cleans the ink off nicely but then causes the paint to boil off, and then Bean frantically tries to save it by wiping it even harder, rubbing the paint off right down to the canvas. Sure, this is not the mark of an intelligent mind, but that's the point of the whole movie.
