The pretentious auteur filmmaker looked so much (in filmmaking approach) to Vincent Gallo. Checked IMDb trivia-> they actually wrote that character with him in mind. LMFAO "Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. " <3
I love Rowan Atkinson but stick to the Mr. Bean tv series...the movies are just awful. I would like to see a Bean film that doesn't have to try so hard and just stick to the winning formula of the series.
:| well, I have to admit it was shot more beautiful than the first adaptation. But do we really need this portrayal of Mr. Bean? The movie was edging on being pretentious. And about the homage, well, Mr. Bean has already became his own character, and forcing it to be compared with Jacques Tati's Mr. Hulot was just..unnecessary.
Terrible over-sentimental theme, an excuse for Rowan Atkinson's Mr Bean to display a full range of slapstick and mischief over a pitiful and mawkish concept. However we also realise that Bean as a character is far from a classic anti-hero, in fact we have enough evidence to dislike the guy, his selfishness and immaturity. Mr Bean is safer in sketch format where time to disect the poor twit is in short supply.
