Mr. Bean’s Holiday DVD Review

Mr. Bean’s Holiday DVD Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Aug 23, 2007
( Rating: 3 Star Rating)

Mr. Bean wins a free trip to Cannes and leaves a trail of destruction and hilarity everywhere he goes! Is the Bean a blast? Read our review!

Winning a church raffle scores the nearly wordless disaster-on-legs Mr. Bean (Rowan Atkinson) a French vacation and a handy-dandy video camera! But when the clueless klutz sets out to hit the beach, it's comedy time! Bean stumbles and bumbles his way from disaster to disaster, finding fame, fortune and maybe even love on the way. Want the real deal on Mr. Bean's new movie? Read our review!

Mr. Bean's Holiday - Chaos, Calamity and Croissants

On his way to chill on the beaches of Cannes, Mr. Bean accidentally seperates a Cannes Film Festival judge from his kid, loses his wallet, blows up the arrogant film director Carson Clay (Willem Dafoe), and gets his bicycle run over by a tank. It's just another day for Mr. Bean, though. He then hooks up with Sabine (Emma de Caunes), a beautiful actress who drives a sweet Austin Mini (Mr. Bean's favorite car!), and tries to save the day, in true bumbling Mr. Bean style, at the Cannes Film Festival!

Mr. Bean's Holiday - Laughs!

Rowan Atkinson is brilliant! He brings the clueless Mr. Bean to life with an amazing gift for comedy and just the right mix of clueless nincompoop and brilliant schemer that makes Mr. Bean so funny. Willem Dafoe does a great job as a pompous villain too and, once the movie gets rolling, there are a half-dozen jokes that'll make you spray pop out your nose.

Mr. Bean's Holiday - Disaster!

There are two big flaws in this movie. The first is that Mr. Bean is very heavy on physical, absurdist comedy, so if that's not your thing, you'll run screaming to hit "pause" before this flick is halfway done. The second is that the first half-hour of this movie is quite slow and mostly consists of Rowan Atkinson making weird faces. Let's face it, he's not winning any beauty contests.

Mr. Bean's Holiday - DVD Features

With over 22 minutes of deleted scenes, a look at some popular tourist sites in France, and cast and crew commentary on the man behind the Bean, you'll be guaranteed some laugh-out-loud moments when you check out the bonus features on Mr. Bean's Holiday.

Mr. Bean's Holiday - Bottom Line

If you dig Mr. Bean and his flavor of funny, you'll get a bunch of laughs out of this movie as it goes from goofy to gross and back again. Unfortunately, the movie takes awhile to get rolling and a lot of the jokes are old. It's not blockbuster megahit material, but if watching Mr. Bean eat an entire prawn - shell and all - makes you laugh, you'll enjoy it.

Mr. Bean's Holiday Rating: 3

I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online. Let's not even touch that)
