Rowan Atkinson, a very gifted physical comedian, brings his successful television show, Mr. Bean, to the silver screen. Mr. Bean goes to America, under the false title of Dr. Bean and is believed to be an ingenious art expert. He manages to get by with that false assumption even though his knowledge of art is extremely limited (despite the fact that he works in an art gallery). When he arrives in America, he is expected to give a speech on the famous Whistler's Mother, in its new American home. It seems to be a rather simple task, but when Mr. Bean's on hand, it never is that easy. The film has a rather weak plot and thin acting by the supporting cast, but Atkinson's hilarious performance is stupendous; guaranteed to supply a laugh or two.
