A former Bean hater, I've been converted by Holiday, Atkinson's second, and far superior film version of his TV hit.

Like the comic stars of the silent era, Mr. Bean's character transcends language barriers.

Either you'll find the man hilarious -- or he'll seem like one of those awful, tedious comedians who only THINKS he's hilarious.

Charlotte Observer

By Lawrence Toppman
The movie gets full marks for earning its G rating: no violence, no cursing, no sex or nudity, no drugs, not even a rogue cigarette blotting the landscape. It's easier to achieve this rating when your hero barely speaks and has little consciousness of the adult world, but "Holiday" proves it can be done-and should be more often.
