The comic talent of Atkinson and his dorky Mr. Bean don't need to prove themselves in the United States, with Mr. Bean grossing more than $100 million before hitting these shores. While the film's intermittently funny, Mr. Bean's antics fare much better on the small screen. The slow pace and bodily function jokes grow stale ? and predictable ? rather quickly. Fed up with Bean's dozing on the job as a security guard, his bosses at London's National Art Gallery dispatch him to Los Angeles to supervise the move of a priceless painting, Whistler's Mother. The museum's curator (MacNicol) hosts Bean, who nearly destroys the family and succeeds in doing a number on the painting.
