I remember the great sense of anticipation so many people had way back in 1997 when it was announced there would be a Mr. Bean movie. The British comedy series based on his character is pure comic genius, and established Atkinson as perhaps the best silent comic since Chaplin. Alas, "Bean the Movie" was a dissapointment, as it was apparent that the silent comic magic of Atkinson was hard to maintain throughout a feature-length film. And alas, "Mr Bean's Holiday" is also a dissapointment, although not without its entertaining moments. The film provides us with a good euro-trip experience, as Bean fine dines in Paris restaurants, travels by rail, hitchhikes on the countryside and attends the Cannes film festival, all with disastrous results. Definitely worth a go if you're a Bean fan, just don't expect a masterpiece.
