Review For whatever reason, the character of Mr. Bean has never caught on in the United States. Rowan Atkinson's most popular creation has a small following in this country, but labeling him as an "acquired taste" would be an accurate descriptor. Unfortunately, by the arrival of the second Mr. Bean movie (following 1997's Bean), that taste has grown stale. About the only thing Mr. Bean's Holiday has in common with the TV series and the first motion picture is that Rowan Atkinson still plays the title character as a petulant child in state of perpetual arrested development - a rubber-faced half-wit who makes Adam Sandler's on-screen persona appear gentle and well adjusted...The movie has a few things going for it. It's odd and offbeat. It concludes with a bizarre lip synching musical number on a beach. The theme music for Hawaii 5-0 makes an appearance for no obvious reason. French actress Emma de Caunes is easy on the eyes, although this is not the best showcase for her thespian talents. Overall, however, the bad outweighs the good. I suspect that Bean die-hards will be pleased but everyone else will be left scratching their heads.

Review A one-man wrecking crew, bumbling his way across the French countryside, the unstoppable Mr. Bean (Rowan Atkinson) wreaks slapstick havoc with Anglo-French relations in Mr. Bean's Holiday, a light-hearted farce of welcome silliness. A G-rated anomaly in a summer of ultra-raunchy comedies like Knocked Up and Superbad, this sequel to Bean (1997) is a breezily funny showcase for the rubbery-faced Atkinson's signature character, a near-mute buffoon partly inspired by the similar antics of Jacques Tati's Mr. Hulot in Mr. Hulot's Holiday (1953)...Since Atkinson introduced Mr. Bean on ITV in 1990, the character has become a global comedy phenomenon, syndicated in over 200 television territories--and Great Britain's unwanted "unofficial ambassador" to the rest of the world, according to an April 11, 2007 article in the British newspaper, The Guardian...Bean has become the face of Great Britain abroad--a clueless, disaster-prone, and harmless nitwit of face, easily ridiculed. When the Iranians took those British sailors hostage last spring, they reportedly mocked one of them by calling him Mr. Bean, owing to his slight resemblance to Atkinson. No wonder Atkinson has indicated that he's ready to leave the character behind.
