Becky and I took the kids to see Mr. Bean’s Holiday movie at the Kerasotes Cinemas in Castle Rock, Colorado today. The Fandango website at Mr. Bean’s Holiday describes the movie as follows:
“When London’s wet weather becomes too much to bear, pratfall-prone Mr. Bean (Rowan Atkinson) heads to the French Riviera for some fun in the sun. As usual, his plans do not go smoothly, and he is mistaken for both a kidnapper and an award-winning filmmaker when he arrives with a Romanian director’s son and an aspiring actress in tow.”
Mr. Bean’s Holiday was an hour and a half of pure torture to sit through. Our 9 year old Conroy looked over at me about 45 minutes into the movie and said, “Dad, this is definitely a Don’t Bother. Can we leave and go see Ratatouille again?” I asked Becky and she was ready to go too, but then I asked Corban and Bianca if they liked it and Bianca said, “Yeah. This is a funny movie.” and then Corban said, “Dad, be quite, this movie is great.”. We were stuck sitting through the rest of the film.
By the way, Bianca is 6 and Corban is 7, so that’s about the mentality of this movie. It’s so stupid as you watch this goofy guy “Mr. Bean” travel around Europe with his video camera until he eventually ends up at the Cannes Film Festival with his video tape being incorporated into a Willem Dafoe movie.
Becky told me later that her Dad and Mom saw this movie and her Dad liked it and her Mom didn’t, so this is probably one of those movies that you’ll either love or hate and it definitely wasn’t one that we could say was worth the price of admission. There are some pretty good laughs a few times, so I’ll rate it as a Rental and Becky would say Don’t Bother.
