Well I am sure we all know who Mr Bean is, he is well known for his TV series, but has now made a couple of films. Rowan Atkinson as Mr Bean has always made me laugh. He is a man of very few words but his moronic actions are what make up this film.
In this film Mr Bean works at an art gallery as a caretaker, and he is about to get fired for sleeping at work all the time., but the chairman of the board who originally hired him years before, says there is no way he is getting fired. So the man who wanted him fired, decides to teach his boss a lesson. They need a respectable man to travel to Los Angeles with a very important expensive piece of artwork. So they sent Mr Bean.
On reaching America that is his first problem that he arises. After making the police suspicious of him, and them thinking he has a gun, he is arrested. On his release, he is staying with an American family, who do not seem keen on the look of him, and do not really want him to stay.
He still stays with the family, and gets taken to the art gallery to look around, but I will not say too more more about the film, you will have to watch it if you want to know what happens in the end.
Rowan Atkinson plays Mr Bean he is a man of very few words, but with Rowan you do not need words, his actions are funny enough. I really love him as an actor, and no one else could ever play Mr bean as well as he does. He gets 10 out of 10 from me.
There is lots of other actors in this film including June Brown AKA Dot Branning, Burt Reynolds and Peter McNicol but the main part in the film is Rowan all the others only lay very small parts.
I did actually laugh quite a lot, he is one character that I could never get bored of watching. The trouble he just seems to always get himself into. You just could not imagine it. I have watched this film twice now, and each time I have still laughed at most of the film.
Mr Bean occasionally does talk in the film, but it is really weird to hear him talk, as it is not something he does often. But it is not a bad thing. I mean what more can you say about this film, apart from watch it, you will love it from beginning to end. You may even watch it more than once, I know I have and I will probably still watch it again.
