Mr. Bean: The Whole Bean

Starring: Rowan Atkinson; Starring: Matilda Ziegler; Runtime (in minutes): 375

As if 14 scrumptious episodes featuring the hilariously awful, nearly wordless everyday escapades of the selfish, childish, resilient social misfit known as Mr. Bean weren’t enough, A&E’s three-volume boxed set includes an illuminating docu, ”The Story of Bean.” Atkinson’s first Beanish inklings, he informs us, came from a youthful viewing of Jacques Tati in Mr. Hulot’s Holiday – a rubbery Everyman inspired by a balletic Everymonsieur. The amassed oeuvre allows for nuanced comparison of the intimacy with which the dolt treats his teddy bear versus the cluelessness with which he treats Bean regular Ziegler as his long-suffering girlfriend.
