This movie did such great buisness, I'm surprised a Sequal hasn't been announced yet. Especially since this first movie was filled with so many recycled bits from the TV series, it would be great to see some NEW material for a sequal this time around Posted Image..

I hope there isn't a sequel. Or if there is to be one, I hope it'll do a better job of capturing the quirky feel of the TV show. I felt the first movie lost a lot of its charm by taking Mr. Bean out of Britain and sticking him in a standard comedy plot.

To this day I just try to pretend the movie never happened and that Rowan Atkinson doesn't even know who Peter MacNicol is :P

Man, an hour wasted on this sig! Thanks, Toshiba! :P

I think the main problem with the movie was that it re-used too many jokes from the original TV episodes. It should've focused more on new material instead of re-hashing older gags. Most of the die-hard Bean fans already knew the jokes (and they were better done on the TV shows) and they just weren't as funny in the film.

But then again, I know people who went into Bean without ever seeing the TV show and they thought the film was absolutely hilarious from beginning to end. So, I guess the filmmakers were trying to balance things out.

I wouldn't mind a sequel as long as this time around, they do a lot more new material.
