Mr. Bean's Holiday

Rowan Atkinson is a very funny man. If you have not seen his work in the BBC Blackadder series, check it out. The Mr. Bean character is more familiar, it was a '90's series in England. There are only 18 episodes of the series and this is the second movie. I haven't seen the first movie, but this one is fun and funny. The Mr. Bean character is almost autistic, so the humor is mostly physical. Bean talks in single words (sometimes understandable) and mumbles. He cannot perform the simplest tasks without trouble. His solutions are often ingenious and clever. In this movie he wins a trip to France and Cannes. Of course, nothing goes right, but in the end, everything turns out OK.

This is a G rated movie, if you can believe that. But it is funny and sweet. Recommended.
