what are films that you personally (and unironically) adore and will defend to the end, but find are generally maligned…
Mr. Bean's Holiday
Disaster has a passport.
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
I don't know why I agreed to watch this, but the best part was Willem Dafoe as Vincent Gallo.
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 just too much slapstick humour.
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…
Mr. Bean eating a seafood platter at Le Train Bleu is a high-point in cinema history.
I don't know why it took me so long to see this film. I loved the Mr Bean series, and the first movie, while not as good as the series was still quite enjoyable. I have to say my first reaction to this movie is that it is far better than the first. Here we have Bean in full glory more reminiscent of the series' Bean. This was almost like a mashup of small skits. My only regret is not seeing Teddy in the movie. I feel like they could have included him in some way, maybe Mr Bean saying goodbye to Teddy as he goes off on his vacation. The inclusion of the child and love interest actually worked…
Manchmal sehr fremdschämig, aber wer Mr. Bean mag, wird auch hier seinen Spaß mit haben!
La Mer... Beyond the sea
Rowan Atkinson would make Stanislavski proud.
Ten years later and it's still the best film of all time.
I remember reading a comment when this was released saying that in the post-Borat world Mr Bean was redundant. It stuck in my mind as one of the most stupid things ever written about a film. It was as though we can only like one sort of comedy or our sense of humour followed fashion. Mr Bean’s Holiday is by the far the more successful of the two Bean films, but it is not as memorable as the original TV episodes. The TV programmes were built around two or three incidents or routines: thinking back 25 years I can remember certain routines, but not which went together in the same programme. What held the programmes together was, of course, the…

#5 of 6 Movies Watched On The Bus Coming Back From The World Youth Day
Back in the good ol'days I was a big fan of the Mr. Bean's TV show, and I watched this film countless times with my dad. Rewatching it now I see all the negative aspects of it: mediocre acting, weak plot, and choppy editing. But DAMN if it is a fun film: Rowan Atkinson is a modern master of slapstick comedy.

This movie is about an English man going to France, where he crosses paths with a Russian child. The man and the kids sing an Italian opera song.
