Special Features


Editorial Reviews

Rowan Atkinson (Johnny English, Blackadder) stars as the iconic Mr. Bean, who never fails to leave a trail of merry mayhem and side-splitting laughter in his wake. His exploits have earned MR. BEAN a slew of awards and an international cult following, and now every one of his live adventures is conveniently packed up in one tidy box.

Included in this collector s set are all 14 episodes of the landmark original series that introduced Mr. Bean to an adoring, if confused, world, as well as his two feature films Mr. Bean: The Movie and Mr. Bean s Holiday. And if that s not enough, a bonus helping of Mr. Bean: The Animated Series features him in the role he was drawn to play. It all adds up to the ultimate serving of Bean, so pull up a chair and dig right in.

I viewed all the episodes and they seem to be in working order. Glitch free and the picture looked good. Sound was fine. I report this because it seems that a lot of dvd releases of tv shows are done crappily that there are lots of justified complaints.
The extras on the 3rd disc of the tv show series were worth viewing. The documentary about how Mr. Bean started was especially cool to see. **The warning to anyone who would like to know, especially maybe for parents, is that the documentary has shots of female frontal nudity that come up without warning.** That footage is from an opening from a comedy series Rowan was a part of in his earlier career. Thought I'd mention it since no other reviewer commented on this. And no, I don't need someone getting smart at me about how other countries are liberal with their tv programming and nudity. I know. I just didn't expect that material on a Mr. Bean dvd set and thought others might like to know.

5.0 out of 5 stars They used to make them like this November 21, 2007
By pattic
The Dick Van Dyke Show. The Lucy Show. The Odd Couple.

What on earth do these wonderful old T.V. shows have to do with Mr. Bean's Holiday?

Well, not a whole lot thematically, but there is one very significant tie between them. The classic shows mentioned above were not children's programs. They were prime-time comedy series aimed at adults. They were clean as a whistle for the most part, as shows then tended to be, but the subjects of the shows revolved around divorce, marital troubles, problems at the office etc.

Unfortunately, modern entertainment equates "adult" with sex and violence. In other words, the word adult has been appropriated. Nothing could possibly be funny, clever, inventive or exciting if there isn't at least some sex or controversy right? It's a pretty sad state when "adult" has come to mean "15 year-old boy" :/

Now before you roll your eyes, I am as far from being a prude as you can get. I own and admire scores of R-rated films, and listen to music that would make most "hipsters" hair curl with shock and disgust. But there was a time when writers actually had to be clever to get a laugh, imagine that. Any idiot can walk into a theater full of adolescents, drop the F-bomb and get roars of laughter, and do, now that was easy. The industry has gone from using salatious material to be thought-provoking (Kubrick, Scorsese) to relying on it for an easy thrill.

Well just when you thought that the art of being funny without body parts and fart jokes was a lost art, along comes Mr. Bean. Rowan Atkinson reminds us with this funny, charming film, that funny is funny. My 9-year-old roared with delight throughout the entire film, as did my wife and I.

4.0 out of 5 stars Paradise for Mr. Bean Fans December 28, 2008
"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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection, but not quite perfect March 25, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have always enjoyed Mr. Bean and so am 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 ridiculous not to do the same with Mr. Beans Holiday.

5.0 out of 5 stars A CLEAR IMPROVEMENT OVER THE ORIGINAL "BEAN" MOVIE November 1, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Much, much better than the original Bean movie, in part because Atkinson is a lot funnier when people around him don't talk too much (unlike the first entry). In fact, every thing I disliked about the first Bean movie was corrected here. THIS is what I was hoping for the first time around.
It takes a while for the film to get going but a couple of the set-pieces had me laughing with tears as did the ending. I've watched the fantastic, final musical number countless times.
Not to say this is Citizen Kane but certainly a great time at the movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! A movie all the family can see. November 23, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Finally! This movie is clean but brilliant and sheer entertainment. You can take your saintly aunt Jemima to this one, and you need not fear to let your children, or grandchildren view it either. It is a G and deserves the rating; there is literally nothing in it that is in any way objectionable. Why can't other films accomplish this?

When my wife and I went to see "Mr Bean's Holiday" it was pouring down with rain outside. It was the first day of school too. Maybe that was the reason why there were only six in the movie theater to see this gem? We were three couples, yet for all the small number there was regular, hearty laughter throughout the whole performance.

I don't know why some reviewers found it uneven or disappointing. It managed to have a lot of brand new material in it. The on-location European filming gave added interest. We never lost track of the plot or lost interest in the action.

We're ordering one for ourselves (the wife and I) and one for the biggest of Bean fans among our grandchildren.

By the way every one of more than a dozen grandchildren has been absolutely delighted with Mr Bean and have asked to see the episodes from the TV series again and again, as well as the movie "Bean". This one caps the lot in my opinion.

so does this have the complete animated series?
As far as I can tell (from having checked out other reviews of this set) it only has the first two discs (out of eight total) of the animated series... and that's too bad, because that means it's not so ultimate! ;)

Are the episodes edited like in the whole bean?
Hold on to your old VHS tapes. These are the same edited versions of the episodes that have appeared on previous DVD compilations. Those scenes were actually added for the American market, but all of the A&E DVDs feature Rowan Atkinson's "preferred" versions, which is the same as what... Read More
