Storyline Heading
After winning a vacation and camcorder in a church raffle, Bean packs up his suitcase and heads to Cannes for some sun on the beach. Ah…vacation. But his trip doesn’t go as smoothly as he had hoped. The bumbling Bean falls face first into a series of mishaps and fortunate coincidences, far-fetched enough to ensure his own makeshift entry into the Cannes Film Festival.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This is a slapstick-heavy comedy more in line with the original TV series than the 1997 feature film; there isn't so much a story than a stringed-together series of sketches. Fans of Rowan Atkinson and the character of Mr. Bean should enjoy. The physical comedy will appeal to kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average At its best, Mr. Bean's Holiday is amusing. At its worst, it's tedious.

USA Today Full Review
Below Average Inspired by the corny spirit of the movie, Mr. Bean's Holiday would have been more aptly titled Bean There, Done That.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 89 moviegoers:
CHILDREN: They LOVED "Mr. Bean's Holiday."
TEENS: Some thought it was great, some thought it was just OK/average. Unfortunately, these reviews are too mixed to be of much help. At least no one disliked it, so chances are you will find it, at least, somewhat enjoyable.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Approximately three-quarters of both the males and the females enjoyed it very much, rating it "Very Good," or higher. Most of the remaining reviews were OK/average, with just a few males rating it below average. For this type of movie, I would say these reviews are pretty good and I would recommend "Mr. Bean's Holiday."
ADULTS: Only about a quarter of the males truly enjoyed this movie. The vast majority rated it OK/average. The lack of very many high reviews and the high number of "average" reviews, means "Mr. Bean's Holiday" may not be a movie you'll want to pay full price to see. As for the ladies, about half truly enjoyed it. Unfortunately, many ladies rated it below average or lower. It appears they either really enjoyed it or didn't care for it. There weren't many in-between.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
It is raining and dreary in London. The waterlogged Mr. Bean (ROWAN ATKINSON) has fortunately won first prize in a church raffle: a train trip to the French Riviera and new video camera. After taking the Eurostar to Paris, Bean arrives at the Gare du Nord station and casually films Sabine (Emma de Caunes), who has stopped to give a street performer money.

Comic confusion at the station's taxi stand results in Bean's arriving at the wrong next stop. He sets off for the correct station—walking through traffic on the ChampsÉlysées— only to find himself the angry object of the paparazzi when he obscures their intended target, the arrogant film director Carson Clay (Willem Dafoe).

Finally arriving at Gare Du Lyon, Bean misses his train to Cannes. He passes time at a restaurant.

On the platform, he asks a Russian named Emil (KAREL RODEN) to film him on holiday. Emil obliges, but is left standing on the platform as the train pulls away with his son, Stepan (Max Baldry), stuck on the shuttle with Bean.

Wrongly thought to be a kidnapper, he has some serious explaining to do after wreaking havoc across the French countryside and arriving at his vacation spot with a Russian filmmaker's precocious son, Stepan ( MAX BALDRY), and aspiring actress Sabine (EMMA DE CAUNES) in tow.

As one misunderstanding after another prompts the trio to arrive at the Cannes Film Festival amidst a maelstrom, Bean is confronted by pompous director Carson Clay (WILLEM DAFOE), who is prepared to berate the oaf for ruining his film. Now, in a curious twist, Bean will either be arrested by the gendarmes or finally have the vacation of his dreams.
