* PrimaDonnaDirector: Carson Clay. To elaborate, almost nobody in the theatre is interested with his [[LeFilmArtistique boring movie]] as many can be seen ''falling asleep'' mid-way through. Even his own wife looks bored and sleepy while watching the movie. And also, it's not even subtitled in French (as per the standards of Cannes Film Festival).

Added DiffLines:

* DinnerOrderFlub: When he decides to dine at the [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Le_Train_Bleu_(restaurant) Le Train Bleu]] in the Gare du Lyon, Mr. Bean winds up ordering a langoustine (Norway lobster), which he doesn't eat. Of note is that the paltry amount of spending money that was part of the prize was barely enough for his meal, forcing him to complete his journey without being able to buy anything.


** Also GettingCrapPastTheRadar. One of the possible phone number while trying to call the kid's parents is [[DrivenToSuicide a down-on-his-luck man. After being hung up, it's more than implied that he jumped from the bridge into the water]].

** Carson Clay's hijacked film has Bean goose-stepping while wearing a Nazi uniform as Clay narrates "looking back on the darkest moments of our history".



* ChekhovsGunman: Or more like Gunwoman. In a 'blink and you'll miss it' moment, Sabine is filmed giving change to an accordion player in la Gare du Nord, right at the beginning.

Or more like Gunwoman. In a 'blink and you'll miss it' moment, Sabine is filmed giving change to an accordion player in la Gare du Nord, right at the beginning. In fact, the scene is part of the video footage that Bean plays in lieu of Carson Clay's film.
** The waiter that serves Bean's ForeignQueasine is one of the people Bean and Stepan accidentally call later on.


Added DiffLines:

* ForeignQueasine: Like the show, Bean evidently does ''not'' enjoy French cuisine.


* BookEnds: "La Mer" plays at the beginning and the end.

** This trope is also applicable in a more roundabout, meta-oriented way: the Mr. Bean character was heavily influenced by French comedy character Monsieur Hulot since his conception, and this movie is a loose remake of the film where Hulot debuted.


Like ''Bean'', ''Mr. Bean's Holiday'' was met with a decidedly mixed reception from critics, again due to the original series not being as big of a mainstay in the US as in the UK, and due to the lack of appeal of the series's brand of comedy in America. Among fans however, it seems to be decidedly better loved, and is generally seen as both a major improvement over the more overtly Hollywood-oriented 1997 film and a suitable sendoff to the series and character.

Added DiffLines:

* GrandFinale: In light of Creator/RowanAtkinson's retiring of the character in 2012, with only sporadic reprisals in the years since, this film marks the effective endpoint of ''Mr. Bean'' as a serialized media franchise.

The second movie based on ''Series/MrBean'' following ''Film/{{Bean}}''. It is a loose remake of ''Film/MrHulotsHoliday''. Significantly less Americanized than the first movie, this film sees the character returning to his near-mute origins and plays out more like an extended skit than a BigDamnMovie.

On his way to Cannes, Mr. Bean (Rowen Atkinson) accidentally loses his wallet and travel documents ''and'' accidentally separates a young Russian boy from his father, a filmmaker on his way to judge the Cannes film festival. Despite the language barriers, Bean sets out to reunite the boy with his father, see France and have his perfect holiday.

It is a loose remake of ''Film/MrHulotsHoliday''.''Film/MrHulotsHoliday'', the film that originally served as the main source of inspiration for the character of Mr. Bean. In a way it seems somewhat like the series coming full-circle, as barring a few sparse reprisals in TV spots and the 2012 Olympics in London, this film marked Creator/RowanAtkinson's [[GrandFinale final major appearance]] as the Mr. Bean character, nearly 12 years after the original TV series ended. Significantly less Americanized than the first movie, this film sees the character returning to his near-mute origins and plays out more like an extended skit than a BigDamnMovie.

* GrandFinale: For the live-action Mr. Bean.

Added DiffLines:

* BigDamnMovie: Played with. The plot's goal is much more mundane than the previous movie since [[HumbleGoal Bean just wants to go to the beach]]. But just to get there, he has to get through a one hell of RoadTripPlot. Spoofed in the trailer where the deep-voiced narrator informs us that the movie is about "one man's journey...to the beach."
