Mr. Bean's Holiday movie review - Aussieboyreviews


It’s definitely an amusing film for kids and has its funny moments, but the story may get uninteresting for adults. This is a fun family comedy based on the show.


Mr. Bean sets out on a journey after winning a holiday to France. But when he unwittingly separates a boy and his father, he decides to take care of the boy and find his dad.

Aussie boy's thoughts

Mr. Bean finally earns his own holiday movie after all the amusing events he’s been through, but there’s an additional truckload more of a thoughtful but weak storyline over his frequently hilarious cluelessness. The only real thing that the creators forgot to cover was that familiar style of mindless humour that the show was able to successfully produce.

Rowan Atkinson is and will always be the star of the Mr. Bean tales. Although the new plot and the other new characters really go and take over his moments of cringey foolishness, the actor still brings back the exact same Bean we were hoping for. Plus, the beloved character has his moments, but unlike the clips you’d see from the show, there’re not just as creative and leave out the accompanying audience-laughter sound effect.

Although many things seem to fall apart, the actual plot isn’t too bad. It’s definitely the kind of journey you’d want to see the classic Mr. Been take roll in. There’s nice themes and fun moments, and it’s another movie that portrays how the actual adventure matters as much, if not more, than the simple location. It’s cringey to witness large crowds singing for the camera and Willem Dafoe following Mr. Bean’s filming style, but at the same time, it’s also just really sweet and undeniably fun.
