Mr. Bean's Holiday (2007)

Several people said this was good, and I was surprised to find that they were right. For one thing, there's not much dialog, so when I watched it with the kids, their extra noise hardly bothered me at all. Otherwise, it's silly and over the top and very funny. I laughed out loud a lot.

One favorite thing: Willem Dafoe is hilarious as a self-important film director, and the screening of his new film at the Cannes Film Festival at the end of the movie is wonderful. I also enjoyed Mr. Bean saying "Gracias" to everyone while he's traveling in France.

  1. When this came out I thought I wouldn't like it. Mr. Bean is funny, but I thought I couldn't take a whole feature length film of him. But I LOVED it. I want to buy this one. My favorite part is when he's "singing" opera in the street. :)
