Occasionally it's funny, but mostly it's immature and idiotic.

It has become readily apparent that it is, indeed, the time to say goodbye to this once delightfully different character.

The English release this week is as asinine as its Bollywood cousin.

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

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.

You can only put up with so much shameless mugging.
September 5, 2007
The episodes become all the more repetitive and wearying when stretched to feature length.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

Mr. Bean's Holiday is a very cute movie. Unfortunately, cute is rarely funny.
August 24, 2007
The film, set mostly in France, pays homage to Jacques Tati, but the mostly silent gags feel like watered-down Bean.
August 24, 2007
The real culprit is Atkinson's grotesque mugging and lazy pratfalls, combined with the misguided decision to tweak the voice tracks so that most of Bean's sparse utterances come out as guttural, near-incomprehensible grunts.
August 24, 2007
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.

The Wikipedia page on gurning lists Atkinson right behind Jim Carrey as one of the world's leading practitioners of grotesque face-making. And this is his ghastly masterpiece.
