The Digest

Mr. Bean's winning raffle ticket gets him a vacation to Cannes. Mr. Bean (Rowen Atkinson) arrives in Paris, and right away as per tradition he gets himself in sticky situation. Largely due to him being Schleprock (Flinstones, anyone?) young boy, Stephan (Max Baldry), is separated from his father (Karel Roden) and Bean takes it upon himself to watch over the boy and get him back to his father.

While Bean is trying to return the child, the rest of the world thinks Stephan has been kidnapped. Mishap after mishap follows Bean and the boy across France. Culminating in them crashing the Cannes Film Festival.

The Dish

You know when I was a kid, I LOVED Jerry Lewis, Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. Mr. Keaton and Mr. Chaplin were no longer acting when I was watching them. But Rowan Atkinson kinda of reminds me of all of them wrapped up in one. Lots of people have just now turned in their grave. Now I don’t believe him to be anywhere near as talented as the aforementioned, but his style of acting is similar. I think he uttered maybe 3 words throughout the entire movie. My kids loved it. Me? Not so much. I don’t find him funny. I never have. I just don’t get him. I’m trying figure out why I can deal with the other 3 actors and not Mr. Atkinson. Perhaps he walks the fine line between brilliant and stupid and for me he is on the wrong side of the line.

I did like Willem Dafoe as an egotistical film director. That was rather amusing.

Even though I really hated this movie, anything rated G and keeps my kids entertained is okay with me.

I wanted to take a vacation from watching it, but my girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
