Mr. Bean's Holiday Reviews

The old Mr. Bean was a lot funnier than this one. It's a combination of things: lackluster writing (neither Richard Curtis nor Mel Smith returned this time), a lack of energy, and curiously poor timing for some of the jokes.

Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies

As a character who doesn't play on your sympathies, Bean somehow seems less tiresome, less demanding, less of a nuisance.

Too often in Mr. Bean's Holiday, you get the feeling Rowan Atkinson and his collaborators confused the notion of 'building a gag slowly' with 'forgetting to build one at all'.

If you've seen 10 minutes of Rowan Atkinson's Mr. Bean routine, you've seen it all. Any larger dose can lead to irritation, dry mouth and depression.

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 sporadically funny.

Delivers more of the same awful mugging and simplistic pratfalls that have endeared the character to absolutely no one I know.

Britain's most-beloved mute behaving like a buffoon while vacationing in France.

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

It wears thin quickly, making even the 78-minute running time feel like a decade when one is in the thick of Bean prancing around the frame.

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

There are innumerable set pieces, most of which take an awfully long time to deliver an awfully weak gag.

The cinematic equivalent of Brussels sprouts; parents will drag their kids to see it whether they want to go or not, and it's bound to leave an unpleasant aftertaste in the mouths of all ages.

Taking on a more European sensibility, Bean seems to have gone back to the drawing board, and come up with gags that were last funny when we were a couple of steps back in the Evolution of Man wallchart.

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

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.

Anyone wanting a family-friendly flick with lots of goofy facial expressions and mugging for the camera may as well just watch footage of dogs wearing funny hats.

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

Cinema em Cena

Infelizmente, as confusões provocadas pelo personagem raramente se revelam engraçadas, levando-nos a torcer para que ele chegue logo ao seu destino e acabe com tudo aquilo.
