Product Description

Amazon.ca

For the newcomer or die-hard fan, this greatest-hits collection includes snippets from several Bean masterpieces. Among the 10 or so generous clips are Bean's extraordinary difficulties getting out of a parking garage without his pass, his "twit dance" alongside a street musician (okay, a musician at a tube stop), his problems keeping awake at church, and his greatest, uh, triumph in preparing to meet the queen with his fly open. Essential comedy and exceptionally funny. --Tom Keogh

4.0 out of 5 stars Be read for more than an hour of Mr. Bean April 24 2003
Format:VHS Tape
I think I know why that don't show the epoisdes that appear in this time in thier entire. I think they are showing tham in bites, because they want to show more than 1 or 2 espoides and they want to keep them sort of time, so they decided to show them in bites. As the video opens, Mr. Bean (Rowan Atkinson) and his teddy bear as gone up to the attic. They want to go outside and it is raining outside. And they find some stuff that reminds them off earlier epoides. The clips in this tape include Mr. Bean waking up and fidning a note with teeh and the time of 9:00, to remind him that he has a dentist apointment and he has to rush because it is almost 9:00, he changes from his pajams into clothes in his car and puts on his pants, while driving with his feet on the steering wheel, when he gets a turkey stuck on his head on Christmas day, and when he visits a pool. If you love these any epodies, but are angry that they shown in bites, or never seen these epoides and want to see the whole thing may suggest to try to find them on video tape or dvd. If you love shows or movies about non-American people that are ficinal or love Mr. Bean, then you watch Harry Potter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Only one flaw... Feb. 3 2003
Format:DVD
It's a paradox. You see, the flaw is that it's merely pieces of the greatest British comedy show ever, which leaves you sadly craving more (which I guess was the point of it's production). It can only be a few pieces, you see, because it's a single DVD containing the supposed "Best Bits" of the original show. My question is, how can you label any bits the "BEST" when it comes to Mr. Bean? Every second of every show is absolutely hilarious, and I cry and scream while laughing every time I watch Rowan Atkinson as Mr. Bean and his side-splitting antics. There is real talent in a comedian who can do a show this golden while hardly uttering a word. Indeed, his great facial and bodily expressions along with ingenious plot twists and misadventures makes this stream of consciousness flawless, from the pilot episode to the show's finale. How can we take a few snapshots of that stream and call them the "best"? You can't!
Long story short, the DVD is great. I laughed the entire time, but it left me dissatisfied and wanting more. Though there was a time restraint on this DVD, I wanted it to go on and on. That's the ONLY reason I don't give "Best Bits" a perfect 5-star rating. Great, hilarious, mind-boggling entertainment for anyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wait for the complete series on DVD May 11 2002
By B-MAN
Format:DVD
Don't get me wrong, the footage is 5 stars - hilarious, being made up of skits from the BBC sitcom, "Mr. Bean", starring the brilliant Rowan Atkinson, but it is just a compilation. True fans will save their money for the complete series on DVD. Well, we have Blackadder, now where is Mr. Bean and "The Thin Blue Line" on DVD? Bean is completely opposite of Blackadder and Thin Blue Line in that as Bean, Rowan is all but mute and completely relies on physical comedy, where as in Blackadder (as Edmund) and Thin Blue line (as Inspector Fowler) Rowan talks his head off and the main source of comedy is in the dialogue, although physical comedy is not absent by any means. Those who only know Rowan for being Bean may be shocked when they see Blackadder or Blue line for the first time because of the drastic character change, but trust me he's just as funny with words as he is with physical action. "The Best Bits of Mr. Bean" is fine for a rental or for an extremely casual fan, but bigger fans of Rowan and Bean are still waiting for the complete series on DVD. I can highly recommend the Blackadder 5 disc DVD set, which contains all 4 series (24 episodes), a reunion special, and other goodies (read my review of that item for much more detail) but I recommend saving your money for the complete "Mr. Bean" series. The BBC series' "Mr. Bean" and "The Thin Blue Line" are essential comedy and I can't wait until they are represented as well as the brilliantly hilarious "Blackadder" series.

Format:DVD
I've been a huge Bean fan for years, and it was an easy decision to buy this DVD based on the description. I did my best to put on his homeroom sketch for my high school talent show, and almost got it approved, but anyway, that's another story.
Mr. Bean is indeed an instant classic, and even if you think you hate British comedy, this will probably win you over anyway.
However, beware that you are NOT purchasing 11 full "episodes". You are purchasing a single flashback episode that flashes back to 11 short selections from Bean episodes.
If you dont believe me, note that the total running time is 77 minutes. Subtract the movie trailers, the credits, the intro, and what you have is about an hour of footage, about half of which is the filler between flashbacks. Now, it is quite hysterical filler about Mr Bean rummaging through his attic and playing with his teddy, but it's still filler, and it's still a flashback episode. If you hate flashback episodes then dont bother.
To paint by numbers, the episode "Mr Bean Helps a Street Performer" is about 1 minute and 5 seconds long. Most of the episodes are around 2-5 minutes long. Now, multiply that by 11 episodes, and you have about 40 minutes or less of old Mr Bean highlights for the price of a full DVD. If you ask me, you're money is better spent on Monty Python episodes, or for that matter, the Rowan Atkinson Live tape!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Bean dip
Pure comedy fun from a true comedic genius. There isn't anyone funnier than rubber faced Rowan Atkinson who is todays Buster Keaton and Stan Laurel all wrapped up in one package.
