    I always liked Rowan Atkinson with his mimic mood (despite statements in the films) simply priceless, another movie that I am well pleased with Rowanâ

    Rowan Atkinson does a decent job in filling in the laughs for "Mr. Bean's Vacation". However, the movie itself is useless in every means.

    Didn't you notice, they kind of ran out of ideas for Rowan Atkinson to act out. Sure some of it was a little funny, but overall it was a blasphemy of disaster.

    The character of Mr. Bean, perfectly designed for 10 minute sketches, fails to fill out an 85 minute run time effectively. There's a couple of great jokes, several bad ones and a whole lot of so-so ho-hum in between. I'm a huge fan of the TV show but neither of films manage to impress, regrettably.

    It was very unlikely this movie was going to beat the first Mr. Bean film. However, it is sad how far from the previous film or the TV show itself this movie is.

    There is some familiar Bean-mannerism, but it seems very incompetent. The Bean we know isn't quite here. The funny parts aren't that funny, and although it is interesting to see several people with different languages

    The funny parts aren't that funny, and although it is interesting to see several people with different languages communicating with each other - not to mention difficulties in different countries, or rather, France - it just isn't as funny as it could be. It feels like a sad attempt to rekindle the old flame that burned so gloriously. I almost wish they wouldn't have made this film, because it fails to embarrassingly next to the show/first movie.

    Rowan Atkinson does well, but "Mr.Bean's Vacation" wastes his once considerable talent into obvious, tired gags and colorless slapstick. Not to mention its plot holes. Carson Clay's movie is directed, produced, written, filmed and starred by him? WTF?

    EPIC FAIL: When Carson Clay is shown in the audience for the first time during the premiere of his movie, you can see Sabine two rows

    EPIC FAIL: When Carson Clay is shown in the audience for the first time during the premiere of his movie, you can see Sabine two rows behind, watching the movie, when she has clearly not arrived at the premiere yet. She is still driving with Mr. Bean. (from IMDB)

  1. Atkinson remains an expert clown, and there are sufficient numbers of gags to ensure that Bean fans worldwide will be kept fairly happy.

    This is a thoroughly Euro bedmate to the 1997 "Bean," with the Gauls rather than the Yanks as the butt of Bean's bumblings.
  3. Atkinson's goofball grotesquerie never lets up -- right through to the inspired finale.
