Storyline

Mr. Bean enters a church raffle and wins a vacation trip to France as well as a camcorder. After boarding a Eurostar train and arriving in Paris, the French language proves a barrier for Bean, as he struggles to get across the city to catch a train to the south of France from the Gare de Lyon. Taking time to order a meal, he finds the consumption of a seafood platter to be a challenge. Just before catching his train, he asks Emil, a Russian film director on his way to be a judge at the Cannes Film festival to use his camcorder to record his boarding, but accidentally causes Emil being left behind at the station. Bean attempts to cheer up the director's son Stepan as the train continues south but matters are made more hectic by the fact that Emil has reported his son to have been kidnapped and Bean losing his wallet and essential travel documents at a pay phone where he and Stepan attempt to contact Emil. Heading in the direction of Cannes, Bean finds himself in the cast and disrupting... Written by Brian Greenhalgh

Trivia

Mr. Bean's first name is revealed to be "MR" as seen in a quick glance of his passport. This is consistent with several references throughout the original Mr. Bean (1990) series where he often had to include his first name on various formal documents, and always wrote "Mr." in the "first name" bracket. There used to be a persistent rumour that Bean's passport in some TV show or movie gives his first name as Rowan, as in Rowan Atkinson, but no specific citations or screen captures have ever been provided to back up the "Rowan" rumour, so it is probably untrue. Bean's first name is still "Mr." See more »

Goofs

Once Bean is in Sabine's Mini he gesticulates that the steering wheel is on a different side. Shortly after this Sabine asks what his accent is, Spanish, Italian, Russian etc. However the only parts of Europe to use right hand drive cars are the British Isles, this would give Sabine a pretty good idea Bean spoke English, albeit with a Scottish, Welsh, Irish or regional English Accent.

Crazy Credits

Although it doesn't really relate to anything in the movie, there is one final scene at the very end of the credits; We see Bean filming through his Video Camera and writing "Fin" in the sand (which means "The End" in French) with a final look through the camera, the water comes up and washes the word anyway...just as the battery on the camera finally runs out...with the screen going black.

Alternate Versions

Several scenes were deleted from US theatrical prints, such as Bean licking the spilled coffee in the laptop and Bean getting his tie stuck in the vending machine. These scenes were restored for the DVD. See more »

A movie guaranteed to make you smile! Good, but not great
25 March 2007 | by phillamgSee all my reviews

After too long on our screens Mr. Bean returns but not in his usual way. Instead of crazy laughs per minute (as in Bean and the earlier Mr. Bean TV episodes), this is a road trip movie with some gaps in the action. There are laughs but some of the scenes are more clever than hysterical. Nothing however can take away from the joy of sharing in Mr. Bean's exploits as he tries to reach his simple goal, a holiday at the beach. Everyone left the film with huge smiles and several had tears of happiness (not tears of uncontrollable laughter). If you want to see a happiness inducing pick me up movie then this is one of the best around.
