Mr. Bean's Holiday (2007)

All Critics (111) | Top Critics (36)

I hate Mr. Bean, I hated this movie. He's an annoying, creepy, leering, sweaty, unfunny character, and ten seconds would be too much and this movie's like 90 minutes.

Mr. Bean's Holiday is a very cute movie. Unfortunately, cute is rarely funny.

Atkinson's Mr. Bean, a man of few words, carries their memory in his rubbery bones. When it comes to knowing where he came from, he's got the beat.

The flick itself is quite funny... if you like Mr. Bean, that is.

Mr. Bean's Holiday is a film stuck in the wrong century, more akin to classic silent comedy than modern humor and Bean himself is a clown caught without his make-up, psychedelically colored pants and bright red nose.

Full Review… | February 28, 2008

Mr. Bean's Holiday delivers some of the charm of the original series, and whatever it may lack, it is worth watching simply for Rowan Atkinson's dedicated performance.

Audience Reviews for Mr. Bean's Holiday


Mr. Bean's Holiday, is much more better that the last movie of the title character. But, dispite the good intentions of this sequel, with the old gags of Mr. Bean, the picture became too obvious and the audience, looks like that, just had already saw all that in the television.

Decent sequel to Bean, this is a modest comedic affair with mild laughs, but the material is more strained this time around to try and create a comedy that is both memorable and fun. Mr. Bean's Holiday is a decent comedy with a few good laughs, however with nearly every sequel it fails to deliver something that is very memorable and above all worth it. The material here is decent at best, sometimes it falls flat, and Rowan Atkinson tries too hard. The film made me laugh, but I felt something was missing to make it a good sequel. As far as I'm concerned, this is a decent film that is fun, but lacks anything to really make it stand out. Mr. Bean, the character is as usual dimwitted and lots of fun and Atkinson really delivers what you'd expect from the character. But there's just something lacking in this film to make it a good enough sequel to watch. This is a fun film, but lacks anything that made the series really good. The comedic elements at times don't work. The best way I could describe the film is by saying that it's a decent comedy that is mildly entertaining. I liked the film, but they could have done a better job. The film had so much potential in being a great comedy and due to its idea of Mr. Bean on holiday, the filmmakers had so much potential in delivering a good comedy, in the end it was a decent flick, nothing special with a few laughs.

As much as I love Rowan Atkinson. Everything im this movie has been done before and better before in Bean. The jokes are lame and obvious and despite Atkinson's performance it's far too poorly written. As Johnny English was improved with Johnny English Reborn. Mr Beans Holiday is a step below 1997's Bean.
