  • Summary: Tired of the dreary, wet London weather, Bean packs up his suitcase and camcorder to hand to Cannes for some sun on the beach.

But this trip doesn't go as smoothly as he had hoped, and 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 a kidnapper, he has some serious explaining to do after wreaking havoc across the French countryside and arriving at this vacation spot with a Russian filmmaker's precocious son and an aspiring actress in tow. Will Bean be arrested by the gendarmes or finally have the vacation of his dreams? (Universal Studios) Collapse

  1. Atkinson's goofball grotesquerie never lets up -- right through to the inspired finale.

    Either you'll find the man hilarious -- or he'll seem like one of those awful, tedious comedians who only THINKS he's hilarious.
  3. Atkinson remains an expert clown, and there are sufficient numbers of gags to ensure that Bean fans worldwide will be kept fairly happy.

    While Mr. Bean's Holiday is hardly a memorable vacation, Atkinson proves an agreeably silly tour guide.

    There is a guilty-pleasure quality to watching Atkinson at work even when Mr. Bean has overstayed his welcome. The film's lightness makes you wish you were the one headed to the beach.
  6. There are certain elements in life that you either have a taste for, or you don't. Like coffee. Cats. And Mr. Bean.
  7. 25
    An excruciating series of gags aimed at kids old enough to think it's funny when a grown-up acts like a small child.

I loved the movie in the movie. It was funny when Mr. Bean lost his bus ticket on the chicken's foot. I loved when he knocked over the man's coffee. I would give it a 100! I loved when he wrote all the possibilities on his passport to call on his boy's dad. Expand

The character touches the basic, curious part that's in us all. "Holiday" is very different than 1997's "Bean", and there are some great moments throughout. The final ten minutes are wonderful as the innocent purity of Bean's presence brings happiness to the people around him. Let's hope that we don't have to wait another ten years before we catch up with our friend again. Expand

    Yes, it's very silly, but that's sometimes just what one wants and needs. Rowan Atkinson this time is allowed to indulge in more Yes, it's very silly, but that's sometimes just what one wants and needs. Rowan Atkinson this time is allowed to indulge in more physical comedy than in his not-so good first movie. He's incredible putting on an impromptu show in a marketplace, dancing and mugging and wriggling as only he can do. Lots of fun. Expand

    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.

    Its a goofy and dumb movie, it is funny but not original and classy like the previous ones. This one is a bore.
