Mr. Bean's Holiday

(Great Britain/USA/Germany, 2007, 90 minutes)

Mr. Bean wins a holiday in Cannes and a video camera on a church raffle, but trouble begins just as he leaves the train in Paris. Tiresome farce that — at least according to its star — marks the last outing for the ever-popular idiot savant originally created on TV; the funniest bits involve a subplot at the Cannes film festival that takes some sly digs at would-be film auteurs but bypasses the character completely.

Universal Pictures and Studiocanal present, in association with Motion Picture Alpha Produktionsgesellschaft, a Working Title production in association with Tiger Aspect Pictures. Starring Rowan Atkinson, Emma de Caunes, Jean Rochefort, Karel Roden, Max Baldry; and Willem Dafoe. Directed by Steve Bendelack; produced by Peter Bennett-Jones, Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner; screenplay by Hamish McColl and Robin Driscoll, based on the character created by Richard Curtis and Rowan Atkinson; music by Howard Goodall; director of photography (Technicolor), Baz Irvine; production designer, Michael Carlin; costume designer, Pierre-Yves Gayraud; film editor, Tony Cranstoun.
