Movie Info

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

The hilarious sting of the TV show is gone; only the rubber-faced shtick remains.

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.

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.

For younger audiences, Mr. Bean's Holiday will be a pleasure, and of course, Bean addicts will, as always, be happy to see Atkinson's alter ego return to the big screen.

The film, set mostly in France, pays homage to Jacques Tati, but the mostly silent gags feel like watered-down Bean.

Bean seems to lament how some filmmakers have forgotten that film is foremost a medium of mass entertainment. The great sadness is that without uttering much of anything, is a few jokes short of making a very good point.

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.

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.

Slight, slapstick-heavy comedy will amuse kids.

Bean and Carson are less different than they are the same, both self-centered and naïve, sad and lonely. Worse, Bean's movie isn't even as funny as Carson's.

"Mr. Bean's Holiday" is a jolly day at the beach.

You can only put up with so much shameless mugging.

The episodes become all the more repetitive and wearying when stretched to feature length.

After 'winning' a camcorder and a vacation package to the French Riviera, Bean sets out in Bean style, and the laughs don't stop.

If you are as repelled by the previews for movies like Balls of Fury or The Comeback, come give the old school a try. It's cunningly made.

Mr. Bean's Holiday is a movie that offers intermittent laughs and some funny sequences, yet does not come together as a whole. It lacks focus and pacing.

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

Taking aim at self-absorbed filmmakers, amateur and professional, emerges as another strong thematic target. If only the comedy produced as many laughs as things to say.

For those who appreciate the power of Bean in brevity, this 'Bean' leads to too much bad gas.

I wasn't a fan of his first film, but darned if I didn't enjoy the ride in "Mr. Bean's Holiday."

It's a shame that Atkinson has yet to find a feature film to do his character justice.

Not only are the physical gags clever, they're refreshing to see in a day when this kind of carefully constructed visual comedy has completely vanished from the movies.

Rowan Atkinson is one of those people who can inspire laugher with a twitch of his eyebrow or a stumble of his feet. He is this movie, and he gives us a good time.

A great deal of silent era slapstick has only grown better with age. The exploits of Mr. Bean have vinegared.

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.

Funny man Rowan Atkinson is Mr Bean. He goes on holiday and unwittingly separates a boy from his father on a train journey. He has to try to reunite them.
