I do not recommend a vast majority of these films. In fact, a good 80-90% of these are anywhere from…
One Man. One Masterpiece. One Very Big Mistake.
Bean works as a caretaker at Britain's formidable Royal National Gallery, and his bosses want to fire him because he sleeps at work all the time, but can't because the chairman of the gallery's board defends him. They send him to USA, to the small Los Angeles art gallery instead, where he'll have to officiate at the opening of the greatest US picture ever (called "Whistler's Mother").
A list of moments that made me laugh out loud:
1) Mr Bean is on an aeroplane and tries to wake up someone by blowing up a used sick bag over a sleeping man.
2) Mr Bean speeds up a theme park ride causing everyone to be thrown around like ragdolls.
3) David: "Don't turkeys take 5 hours to cook?"
Mr Bean: "Not necessarily."
Cut to Mr Bean stuffing it into microwave.
4) Mr Bean ruins a $50 million painting of Whistler's Mother.
5) David reacts to the destroyed painting where Mr Bean has drawn a smiley face on.
6) Mr Bean thinks giving the finger to someone is a gesture of goodwill and drives around Beverly Hills flipping off all the rich people.
That's more laugh out louds than Adam Sandler's entire career.
Fun comedy with plenty of moments to tweak that funny bone.
Obviously not as funny as the tv show but I saw this movie 3 fucking times at the cinemas when it had it's theatrical run and I was high as a fucking skynet on all 3 of those screenings. Damn those were some good times and watching Bean on weed is fucking killer, Christmas socks!!!
Despite the film being a big fat stereotype most of the time, there are still plenty of moments where Atkinson gets to showcase his endearing creation in the best most obscure way possible. Definitely in the slapstick vein, this is best viewed as a child or under the influence of your favorite vice.
Of all the TV comedy to movie properties to translate, Bean was actually potentially on paper one of the easiest. Roman Atkinson's brand of Chaplin-esque modern clowning was always very light on dialogue or complexity and high on the visual element, constructing the situations Mr. Bean finds himself in which get more and more elaborate the deeper into the proverbial rabbit hole he gets. Why, then, doesn't Mel Smith's big screen translation really work? The problem ultimately is that in order to make a conventional feature film narrative, Bean has to jettison a lot about what made many of the TV episodes so successful in the first place.
By that, I mean it naturally has to become more about character…
Somewhat funny but I prefer his Black Adder to Bean.
Rowan Atkinson makes this movie funny and watchable. Without him it would suck and be a complete waste of time. If you love Mr. Bean then you will really enjoy this but everything else about the movie is just meh.
Rowan Atkinson’s character Mr. Bean is an ultimate comedy classic, and although it is very childish and idiotic, it is still a very funny idea, especially in this, the first of the Mr. Bean movies.
Throughout the film, it was evident to me how cheesy a story line this was, and therefore I was able to predict basically every mishap and chaotic act that Mr. Bean ended up doing, however that is part of the fun of watching this character, which makes it very enjoyable.
Obviously, some of the jokes in this film were just overly predictable, and therefore, they weren’t as funny to see, but on the other hand, there were numerous scenes which reduced me to tears with laughter.
Overall, this gets a 7.0 because it was quite funny indeed, however it was also a bit too cheesy and predictable to be a great comedy story.
Wonderfully silly, but also funny at the same time
I laughed my head off with this one! Mr bean has done it again
taking bean out of his silent formula and putting him with talkie americans was the worst fucking idea
Not sure if mr. bean should never have opened his mouth.
What happens when you're hungover and in control of Netflix. I have no excuse. It was funny. I have no regrets.
so funny omg classic mr. bean
This had Mr Bean in it.
