Mr. Bean's Holiday

Though most American's don't realize it, the first Mr. Bean movie was one of the most successful comedies in history--mostly because its wordless slapstick made it suitable for release in countries as far flung as Argentina, Iceland and Estonia. Honestly, Bean was not star Rowan Atkinson's finest hour. But it made $200 million, guaranteeing some sort of sequel. Ten years later, we get this collection of vignettes in which the hapless Mr. Bean travels to France, learns to bicycle, fights with seafood and helps reunite a young tyke with his father. Atkinson is no Harold Lloyd, but the film is worthy of a few decent chuckles. 90 minutes PG.
