In his latest misadventure, Mr. Bean-the nearly wordless misfit who seems to be followed by a trail of pratfalls and hijinks-goes on holiday to the French Riviera and becomes ensnared in a European adventure of cinematic proportions. Tired of the dreary, wet London weather, Bean packs up his suitcase and camcorder to head to Cannes for some sun on the beach. Ah...vacation. But his trip doesn't go as smoothly as he had hoped when the bumbling Bean falls face first into a series of mishaps and fortunate coincidences, far-fetched enough to make his own avant-garde film. Wrongly thought to be… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The hilarious sting of the TV show is gone; only the rubber-faced shtick remains."
‑ David Fear, Time Out New York
"Atkinson's Mr. Bean, a man of few words, carries their memory in his rubbery bones. When it comes to knowing where he came from, he's got the beat."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek,
"The flick itself is quite funny... if you like Mr. Bean, that is."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Britain's most-beloved mute behaving like a buffoon while vacationing in France."
‑ Kam Williams, EURWeb
""Mr. Bean's Holiday" is a jolly day at the beach."
‑ Roger Tennis,
"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."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"For younger audiences, Mr. Bean's Holiday will be a pleasure, and of course, Bean addicts will, as always, be happy to see Atkinson's alter ego return to the big screen."
‑ Bill Zwecker, Chicago Sun-Times
"Mr. Bean's Holiday is a film stuck in the wrong century, more akin to classic silent comedy than modern humor and Bean himself is a clown caught without his make-up, psychedelically colored pants and bright red nose."
‑ Brandon Fibbs,
"Slight, slapstick-heavy comedy will amuse kids."
‑ Renee Schonfeld, Common Sense Media
"You can only put up with so much shameless mugging."
‑ Jette Kernion, Cinematical
"Mr. Bean's Holiday is a very cute movie. Unfortunately, cute is rarely funny."
‑ Amelie Gillette, AV Club
"The film, set mostly in France, pays homage to Jacques Tati, but the mostly silent gags feel like watered-down Bean."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"Mr. Bean's Holiday delivers some of the charm of the original series, and whatever it may lack, it is worth watching simply for Rowan Atkinson's dedicated performance."
‑ Felix Gonzalez Jr., DVD Review
"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."
‑ Cynthia Fuchs, PopMatters
"The episodes become all the more repetitive and wearying when stretched to feature length."
‑ Michael Dequina,
