Bean 1997

PG-13 CC

Mr. Bean, is sent on a mission to California to escort the world famous painting of "Whistler's Mother" to its new home in The Grierson Gallery. What the gallery owner, one of the richest men in America, and his curator David Langley (Peter MacNicol) believe, is that Mr. Bean is Dr. Bean, a renowned art expert. In fact he is just a sleepy-headed, wildly eccentric museum guard. He's also the clumsiest, craziest, wackiest, wildest, most bizarre character they have ever come across, and certainly not someone you'd entrust one of the world's most valuable paintings to. But they have, and now wreaking havoc in the Grierson Gallery and wrecking Langley's marriage is just the beginning. With only hours to go before the official unveiling by the museum's benefactor, General Newton (Burt Reynolds), something terrible has happened to "Whistler's Mother" and only one man has the power to put it right. The only problem is, that man is BEAN.

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.

I remember when i was 9 years old in 97, i went to see this film in the cinema with a relative. Good time.

I recently saw this Blu-ray and i still think it`s funny a film. I think Mr. Bean is a great character played by the great
comedic actor Rowan Atkinson. I laughed a lot of this film. I`m glad to have it in my ever growing Blu-ray collection.

Picture quality: 4/5

I read a review of this film and it has DNR and Edge Enhancement. This is true, i don`t like DNR and Edge Enhancement.
But, despite this, it i think it still looks good, but not reference quality due to the use of the mentioned. It still has HD
quality and looks better than the DVDs.

Audio quality: 3.5/5

I was suprised the DTS-HD MA 5.1 didn`t sound better. I think the Dialog was mixed too low and the music a bit hollow
and unclear. The think the dialog and music actually sounded better in the foreign dub

Film: 5/5
Overall: 5/5

"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.

I've loved this movie ever since I first saw it in the theater way back when, but seeing it on Blu Ray was like seeing it for the very first time all over again. If you're a Mr. Bean fan, and you own a Blu Ray player then buy this, you won't regret it.

apparently, i'm feeling generous because i'm giving this movie 3 stars. i'm a big fan of the mr. bean brit-com, but i did not expect much when i heard they were doing this as a movie.....and hollywood did not surprise me. as i suspected, although mr. bean works well as a half hour sitcom, trying to turn it into a full-length film by adding a predictable b movie script and cast just for the sake of exploiting a money-making tv show was a big mistake! i was shocked to see that the movie was written by richard curtis and robin driscoll, who are the same british dudes who cowrote mr. bean's tv show (often with star rowan atkinson)....(also richard curtis has been involved in cowriting a bunch of other great british tv shows such as the young ones, the vicar of dibley and atkinson's the black adder).......still it seems curtis and driscoll either took a class or at least watched enough cheap exploitative american b movies......because they did a fine job in imitating the kind of sludge hollywood has put out when it has tried to exploit other shorter venues that never should have been turned into movies (such as saturday night live skits like wayne's world and the coneheads.....great 5-minute running gags, horrible movies!). still, i'm giving this flick 3 stars, because there were some nice mr. bean bits...rowan is always good in that role (although they stole a few bits from the show that did not need to be regurgitated in the flick, like bean getting his head stuck in a turkey). and there were some moments that were a real big laugh....but not many. overall, this flick was what i expected: a b movie plot, actors and acting...just filling in some decent mr. bean bits all for the sake of exploiting a wonderful brit-com. there are funny moments and a few laughs, but in the long run they shouldn't have bothered. don't waste your time with this if you're a fan of the show.
