Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that kids are sure to giggle at Mr. Bean's ridiculous mugging and all of this comic farce's falls, accidents, and treacherous near-misses. Although the movie doesn't have much dialogue (you don't really need it to keep up with Bean's broad humor), what little there is, is mostly in subtitled French (or Russian), which could be tricky for kids who aren't yet proficient readers. And a few moments could be scary (a faux military attack on a quiet village, for instance) if kids aren't good at distinguishing real from imaginary.
- Sexual Content
- Mr. Bean has a very innocent crush on Sabine.
- Cartoonish, exaggerated slaps, falls, and pratfalls throughout. A suicidal man jumps off a bridge, but no physical injuries are shown on screen. A vicious dog with bared teeth appears suddenly (but briefly). A military attack on unsuspecting villagers is quickly revealed to be part of a movie production.
- Not applicable
- Social Behavior
- Mr. Bean's intentions are always good, but his behavior is quite inappropriate at times (which is the whole joke behind the character): He displays bad manners, is inconsiderate of others, and generally causes trouble wherever he lands. He sometimes "borrows" things that don't belong to him, and he doesn't always give them back. In the end, the film has a nice (if not exactly trumpeted) message about helping people and doing the right thing.
- A Sony video camera plays a prominent role in the movie.
