    I would like to know from the UK TBers if they liked this movie.

    I loved watching Mr. Bean as a kid.

    I thought it was an excellent end to the legend of Bean. Now, I know they will never top the TV show but I loved the movie. The ending was so powerful and moving I couldn't stop the tears streaming down my face. Amazing.
     
  3. Dude, you cried because of Mr.Bean? Haha, just messing with you.

    Mr.Bean is kinda like a legend over here :p.

    I liked the movie, first one was better though. The street dance part was hilarious.

    The first one was excellent. I will probably go see this in the theatre now.
     
  5. I hated the first one. Nowhere near as good as the show. I probably won't watch the second in the theaters.

    Not a fan. Something about the guy bugs me. I think it's his smug arrogant britishness.

    I remember Toasted having a strong opinion about Mr. Bean. I'm not sure if it was favorable though.

    Bean is not Rowan Atkinson's best work... IMO.

    Not The Nine O'Clock news... the Gorilla (Gerald) sketch... makes me laugh just thinking about it.... Blackadder was amazing too, all 4 series were just as good as each other...

    Each historical period of The Black Adder was funnier than the one before. Pure brilliance! I also thought the first Bean movie was a nice enough collection of bits from the show spliced together.

    I always loved his bit with beyond the fringe: "will this wind....Be....SO mighty....as to lay low......the mowntains.... of the Earrrrrrrrrrrth........?"

    I loved the TV show but didnt like the movie. Not bothered about this one.

    Atkinson is the only guy that can make me laugh just saying single words.

    Hmm, I think they peaked with series II...Percy was brilliant, I loved him, Darling was a cop out.

  19. That's a great sketch. For those who haven't seen it, I'm sure it's floating around Youtube.
