Mr. Bean's Holiday
Makes You Forget the Horrible First Film
I hated the 1997 Mr. Bean film for its pointless side characters and complete lack of plot or humor. This film is, surprisingly, pretty enjoyable. I think the more direct plot, likable international characters (I really liked the fact that the film doesn't Hollywoodize things by having all the characters speak English and that the three main characters who end up traveling together for most of the film have camraderie without really speaking the same language), and beautiful setting helps make this a far superior and separate Bean film from the 1997 atrocity.
