* MagicalDefibrillator: In the words of the LiteraryAgentHypothesis "novelisation", "all you have to do is put the round things on someone's chest, yell 'Clear!' and then they come back to life!... But I thought I'd better try the round things on my chest first." - which launches him through the air to land on a comatose patient and accidentally revive them. Admittedly residual electrical current in Mr Bean might have helped there but it's still crazy (though electricity always did act weirdly around Bean).

* KarmaHoudini: Unlike in the TV series, Bean's does at least have a couple of brushes with the law, but he still escapes any serious consequences for his actions, particularly his destruction of Whistler's Mother.

* KarmaHoudini: Unlike in the TV series, Bean's does at least have a couple of brushes with the law, but he still escapes any serious consequences for his actions, particularly his destruction of Whistler's Mother. However, destroying the painting was due to a series of accidents (Bean trying to clean dust of the painting and sneezing, trying to wipe the painting clean unfortunately ink had leaked on his handkerchief, etc.), and if it had been revealed it's pointed out David would have probably been fired.


Added DiffLines:

** To be fair, Bean ruining the painting was clearly an accident (beginning from him sneezing while trying to get dust of the painting and bad luck) and he covers this up to stop David losing his job.

Added DiffLines:

* CaptainObvious: When called upon to make a speech on the painting, Mr Bean's two observations are "it's quite big" and "it's a picture of Whistler's mother".

[[TheMovie A theatrical film]] based upon ''Series/MrBean''. It had a number of brilliantly-executed moments -- many of them recycled gags from the TV show -- but suffered from a Hollywood treatment which gave Mr. Bean too much backstory (we now knew his job) and [[SuddenlyVoiced too much dialogue]]. Nonetheless, it was a smash hit in Britain and throughout Europe and also fared somewhat well in the U.S.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Though still very goofy overall, this movie has Bean risking more serious repercussions than he's used to (see {{Deconstruction}} below for details) and there are several jokes that are more adult than the ones on the show, hence the movie's PG-13 rating.



* FlippingTheBird: Bean misinterprets the gesture

to:

* FlippingTheBird: Upon being given the gesture by a biker he annoys, Bean misinterprets the gestureit as a friendly one, and then proceeds to give it to everyone he sees.



* MythologyGag: The exploding turkey, of course, and Bean's jiggery-pokery with the simulator ride evokes the sneaky way he got a great deal on a recliner.

to:

* MythologyGag: The exploding turkey, turkey scene (which is an even more blatant reference to the equivalent scene in the show in the American edition of course, the movie) and Bean popping a bag he is unaware has vomit in it, not to mention Bean's jiggery-pokery with the simulator ride evokes the sneaky way he got a great deal on a recliner.



** [[spoiler: Bean accidentally dropping an M&M into the police chief's body undergoing surgery]] heavily resembles the "Junior Mint" episode of Seinfeld which involves a similar situation, but with the titular candy instead.



* SuddenlyVoiced: For the most part, Mr. Bean continues with his silent nature. It wasn't until he was forced to make a speech about Whistler's mother that he finally got himself to talk.

to:

* SuddenlyVoiced: For Played with. Though Bean spoke on occasion in the show, it was typically short, mumbled phrases. Although he still doesn't talk much for most part, Mr. Bean continues with his silent nature. It wasn't until of the movie, he's more coherent when he was forced does, and near the end [[spoiler: when he has no choice but to make a speech about Whistler's mother that ''Whistler's Mother'', he finally got himself actually manages to talk.improvise a rather un-Bean-like monologue.]]

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Peter's daughter and her biker boyfriend. It doesn't work out ''too'' well for her.

* {{Deconstruction}}: Downplayed. Where Mr. Bean's suffered next to no consequences for his antics in the series, they manage to land him in trouble with the authorities at several points in the film, though in keeping with his status as TheFool, he still always manages to get out of these trouble.

However, Bean's foolishness does have dire consequences for David, nearly costing him his job and his family before Bean sets everything right.

* ReassignedToAntarctica: Mr. Bean is sent away to the unveiling of ''Whistler's Mother'' in the United States at the urging of most of the British Royal Gallery's board. This is done as an alternative to firing him because they want to see him gone, but can't actually let him go because the chairman of the board is the one person who likes him enough to let him keep his job, and threatens to resign if they go anywhere near Bean's job security.
