Movie Reviews

Should Have Been a 5
Ron | Jersey | 08/13/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This is a 4 star movie for anyone who has never seen Mr. Bean before. As someone who has the box set and had watched Bean on PBS for many years, this movie just didn't cut it for me. It is basically a reworking of all the very best bits of Rowan from the Bean series with a movie plot around them tying them together. So while there is a new idea or two, for the most part the long term fan has seen all these gags before. I would pick up the Whole Box of Beans to get a true taste of the genius of Rowan Atkinson."

"If you are already a fan of Mr. Bean and haven't yet seen this movie, run to the store!! Watch the disaster-man come to America... A famous American painting is bought from the Brits and goes back to the US; the British art museum is asked to send a renown art scholar who will deliver a speech during the celebration of the masterpiece return. They decide to send Bean. He is no scholar, of course, he's just a watchman they wish they could fire; but they can't, so they are happy to get rid of him at least for a couple of months by sending him to the States.Some of the antics are taken from the TV series, but there are many new ones you will enjoy. The episode of Mr. Bean's arrival to the airport is priceless, as well as his "performance" in front of the mirror-wall at the police station.Highly recommended to any Bean lover."
Mr Bean Meets Intellectuals
Bu-Chan | Aotearoa | 04/09/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

""Bean: The Movie" is a good movie, if you are into Mr Bean. Many of the gags are from the series episodes, though there are some new adventures that Bean gets up to.

The movie has Mr Bean sent to the USA on an international art gallery event to unveil "Whistler's Mother" in an LA gallery. To the Americans, Bean is referred to as a genius in the British art world, an expert without peer. Naturally, expectations are high.

As mentioned, fans will be familiar with some of the gags that appear in the movie, albeit under new circumstances. However, there are some new ones that generate enough novelty to make the movie worth seeing.

With the longer format, I am not all that sure that the Bean concept was as punchy as the episodes. I certainly didn't experience any physical discomfort, cramping, breathing difficulties or blurred vision. However, this movie was a good dose of light and amusing entertainment.

I would suggest that the one of the complete Bean series collections would be a better place for laughter a-la Bean. Though, in this encounter between the intellectual art world and Bean, it is certainly the snobs that come off second best."
Funny movie if you watch the uncut version
Donald C. Renfro | 02/03/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I like funny movies. This one is funny. There is one thing that you should be aware of. There are three versions. One is 89 minutes, the second 91 minutes, and the third is 107 minutes. Obviously if you see the 89 minute version you might feel something is missing. It is. A lot of the jokes aren't complete, and there are parts that are just deleted out of the movie which are funny. I've seen the 89 minute version and it's not so funny. The longer 107 minute version is, and I suggest that should be seen instead of the cut version. If you do the math, there's 18 minutes missing from the 89 minute version, and that's enough to spoil a good movie. It seems that the "big brother" productions want to control what you watch.
