Mr. Bean’s Holiday (2007)

()

Comedy, Family |

Mr. Bean’s Holiday is a comedy film based on the British television series Mr. Bean, as well as a standalone sequel to 1997’s Bean. Directed by Steve Bendelack and written for the screen by Hamish McColl and Robin Driscoll, from a story by Simon McBurney, it is a British-American venture produced by StudioCanal, Working Title Films and Tiger Aspect Films, and distributed by Universal Pictures. The film stars Rowan Atkinson in the title role, with Max Baldry, Emma de Caunes, Willem Dafoe and Karel Roden in supporting roles.

Mr. Bean’s Holiday was theatrically released in the United Kingdom on 30 March 2007 and in the United States on 24 August 2007, both to mixed reviews from critics but was a box office success, having grossed $229.7 million worldwide against a $25 million budget.

In a raffle, Mr. Bean wins a holiday by train to Cannes, a video camera, and €200. Before catching his train, Bean causes chaos while sampling French seafood cuisine in a Paris restaurant.

On the platform at Gare de Lyon, Bean asks Russian origin movie director Emil Duchevsky (Karel Roden) to film him boarding the train using his new video camera. Bean keeps asking for retakes, until the train leaves with Bean and Duchevsky’s son, Stepan (Max Baldry) on the train and Duchevsky is left behind.

Bean and the boy get off at the next station. Duchevsky’s train does not stop at the station, and he holds up a mobile phone number, but accidentally covers up the last two digits. Attempts at calling the number are fruitless. They board the next train but Bean has left his wallet, passport, and ticket in the telephone booth, and they are thrown off the train at the next stop.
