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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Rowan Atkinson's operatic lip-synching in 'Mr. Bean's Holiday' is one of the funniest things I've seen in a movie so far this year.

Watching Atkinson pantomime an opera aria or engage in simple sight gags serves as a reminder of how few people are keeping this kind of visual comedy alive.

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.

Ultimately, if you don't like Mr. Bean, you won't like this film. But fans will laugh themselves silly.

The trifling delights of Mr. Bean's Holiday come to a thundering crescendo during the movie's last 10 minutes in a sequence which almost reaches the enchanting heights of Monsieur Hulot's Holiday.

It's mercifully short (87 minutes), the French scenery is pleasant, a handful of the routines are hilarious and -- with its G rating -- you can definitely bring the kids.

An only intermittently funny sequel that finally livens up in the last third. But that part -- a hilarious putdown of the pretension at the Cannes Film Festival -- is worth sticking around for.

A breezily funny showcase for the rubbery-faced Atkinson's signature character, a near-mute buffoon partly inspired by the similar antics of Jacques Tati.
