How many English language films can say, "To hell with America!"? Very few. Basically only "Bean", which has already racked up over $100 million before the picture has even unspooled in one New Jersey mall.

We'll forgive England for the Spice Girls. Maybe even Benny Hill, Joan Collins, Boy George, Fergie and that habit of pouring milk in tea. But with Bean's arrival, it might mean war.

Slapstick, but gross-out humor.

Rowan Atkinson's recalcitrant TV character is the hub of this 1997 feature that will disappoint fans and nonfans alike.

Atkinson's reactive brand of bug-eyed and near-silent comedy has always been more akin to Jacques Tati--plus a lecherous pinch of Jerry Lewis, the better to invade the viewer's personal space.

Atkinson is able to hit the comic jackpot through grunts, gestures, body movements, and, most of all, facial expressions.

Atkinson's genius at portraying a pesky, childish adult is reminiscent of the great comic stars of silent movies, Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin.

The film is little more than a showcase for Atkinson's broad slapstick comedy, overdone facial contortions, and bathroom humor.

I'm pretty sure that I can say it's not a great movie; I'm not so certain I can say it wasn't a funny one.
