Mr. Bean wins a trip to Cannes where he unwittingly separates a young boy from his father and must help the two come back together. On the way he discovers France, bicycling, and true love, among other things
To be honest I think the TV series of Mr. Bean and the 1997 film Bean was ten times better than Mr. Bean's Holiday. The movie had some funny parts in it and Rowan Atkinson was good has always, but there was a lot of good films that came out the same times has this movie and I would watch those than this.
Rowan Atkinson can actually act but im afraid to say i've never really liked mr bean its the most unfunny comedy thats ever been filmed by people.
The original TV to movie translation for popular British comic character Mr. Bean back in 1997 failed primarily because in attempting to translate the character to the big screen, it lost a great deal of the elements that made him so funny in the first place - the near silent, escalating, Chaplin-esque farce - and replaced much of it by trying to shoehorn Bean into a more conventional narrative, with a saccharine, Americanised element. Though never reaching the heights of the TV series at its best, Mr. Bean's Holiday improves on it's predecessor by taking the alien, fish out of water bumbler & placing him once again into a tumbling, escalating level of disaster while using the well worn 'take the…
Ah Mr. Bean! It has been a while hasn't it?
The movie takes a long time to begin with to get to the meat of the story. I felt the beginning tried a bit too much to make me feel nostalgic about the old Mr. Bean series with some jokes seemingly lifted from old gags and updated to the setting of the movie. It was still exceptionally funny though.
Once it gets going however, we get a really great story with additional characters that has you caring. Willem Dafoe is absolutely hilarious in this.
The movie has very little dialogue compared to other movies, because of a lot of language barrier problems for Mr. Bean but I think that helps sell the feel and heart of Mr. Bean, and proves to make a lot of misunderstandings and funny action better.
Mr. Bean's Holiday means well, but good intentions can't withstand the 90 minutes of monotonous slapstick and tired, obvious gags.
Decent sequel to Bean, this is a modest comedic affair with mild laughs, but the material is more strained this time around to try and create a comedy that is both memorable and fun. Mr. Bean's Holiday is a decent comedy with a few good laughs, however with nearly every sequel it fails to deliver something that is very memorable and above all worth it. The material here is decent at best, sometimes it falls flat, and Rowan Atkinson tries too hard. The film made me laugh, but I felt something was missing to make it a good sequel. As far as I'm concerned, this is a decent film that is fun, but lacks anything to really make it stand…
Day 20 of "100 Days, 100 Childhood classics"
Another cheat day in my challenge- I was originally scheduled to watch the original Mr. Bean movie (titled simply "Bean"), but this came on TV so thought I'd save time and effort by watching this instead. Mr Bean has always been unrelentingly creepy- by giving him a movie where he unintentionally abducts a child the movie at least acknowledges the sinister thoughts that go through many audience's minds when they see Mr. Bean. The movie never acknowledges this though and excuses every single idiotic wrong-doing by turning it into a misjudged comic setpiece; the biggest offender is a scene where he dials a wrong number and inadvertently provokes the man on the…
Come for the Willem Dafoe, stay for the...laughs? No...certainly not. But hey, Dafoe as a pretentious filmmaker is fun if you ignore the rest of the (blissfully short) movie.
Mr. Bean wins a trip to Cannes and struggles with various mishaps in an attempt to get to the beach.
Bean fires on all cylinders here with some of his best physical comedy and gives us a Bean we can sympathize with.
Good: Brilliant physical comedy, gorgeous visuals, interesting story, and some depth to Bean's character.
Bad: Perhaps a tiny bit predictable
Rating: 9.6 / 10 (Excellent)
got some chuckles from me up until a suicide scene that is intended to be funny
needless to say I found it wildly unfunny and stopped watching
Everyone loves Mr. Bean!! Come on!
A favorite from my childhood that I must've seen seven or eight times.
A very strong candidate for the shittest movie I've seen so far this year.
A comedy that isn't funny at any point, and surely that's the point of a comedy.
Mi actuación favorita de Willem Dafoe.
Don't know why but can't stand this guy and his stupid mimics. Will never watch a Bean movie again (hopefully)...
