Movie Reviews

Paradise for Mr. Bean Fans
The Movie Man | Maywood, New Jersey USA | 12/28/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Mr. Bean: The Ultimate Collection" is a seven-disc box set featuring the antics of Rowan Atkinson's alter- ego, the long-legged, goofy-looking guy who manages to create comic mayhem wherever he goes. Mr. Bean, whom Atkinson describes as a child in a grown man's body, was created when Atkinson was a student at Oxford University. Borrowing from silent film techniques, Bean never speaks, relying instead on facial expressions, sight gags, and slapstick to milk laughs. Atkinson is Chaplinesque in the way he sets up gags, plants them, and then illustrates his mortification at how badly things have gone. We feel sorry for his sad-sack ineptness, but still manage to laugh at his constant penchant for getting into awkward, frequently embarrassing fixes. I was reminded of Buster Keaton and even Lucille Ball, two folks who knew how to incorporate and use props comically. Atkinson cites Jacques Tati's earlier character, Mr. Hulot, as another influence.
The box set contains all fourteen episodes of the original series and the two feature films, "Bean: The Movie" and "Mr. Bean's Holiday." In addition, the set contains the animated series "It's Not Easy Being Bean" and "Bean There, Done That."
Bonus features include deleted scenes, never-before-seen-on-TV sketches, the documentary "The Story of Bean," the 20-minute featurette "Making of the Animated Series, a music video, and French versions of the feature films."

"If you have any of the following skip it

Mr. Bean - The Whole Bean (Complete Set) ( I didn't have this but disc 1-3 on The Ultimate Collection appear to be this judging by the menu in which Mr. bean is poping out of a can that has The Whole Bean writen on the bottom) disc 1-3

Mr. Bean The Animated Series, Vols. 1 & 2 (It's Not Easy Being Bean / Bean There Done That) disc 4-5

Bean: The Movie disc 6

Mr. Bean's Holiday (Widescreen Edition) disc 7

I gave it 4 stars because I love Mr. Bean and since I didn't have any of this because I skipped The Whole Bean because of it missing scenes ( but I guess I got it anyway )

Special Features are as follows

-Mr. Bean: Volume 1-3(only the volume 3 disc has special features)
The Story Of Mr. Bean-A Forty Minute Documentary Of Mr. Bean
Never-Before-Seen-On-TV Sketches:
*Bus Stop
*Library

and finally in response to the review and questions i have seen on here

hate to be the bearer of bad news so far it appears that it is the edited ver. even more so it looks to me as the set is a rehash the seven disc break down like this Mr. bean: vol 1,2,3 ( 3 discs ( thats the t.v. series ( looks to be the the whole bean because of the menus ),then you have bean: the movie( 1 disc ), Mr. bean's holiday( 1 disc ), then you have two disc from the animated series bean there, done that ( 1 disc ) and it's not easy being bean ( 1 disc ) so far I watched some of this the main missing scenes that people talked about from the whole bean being missing are m.i.a here too where he fights with the old lady over the chair in "do-it yourself" and where he guess the weight of the turkey in "merry Christmas"

***Edit to point to the act that is rehash ever more so is vol 1-3 on this set have the same error in the order of episodes as The Whole Bean i am 99.9% sure that it is the whole bean but since I have never seen hat set myself I am still 00.1% not sure"
Excellent collection, but not quite perfect

"I have always enjoyed Mr. Bean and so and happy to have the collection. I was only disappointed with this set in that Mr. Beans Holiday was only the standard screen version, not the widescreen. Mr. Bean the Movie has both versions, it seems rediculous not to do the same with Mr. Beans Holiday."

"We love the broad humor of the Bean series. It's great to have it all in digital format finally. (We recorded them in the past on VHS.) Something to watch and laugh with over and over."
