Finally managed to catch Mr. Bean's Holiday!

Salut! Haha.. it's an informal way of saying 'hello' in French! Can't help but feel inclined to learn French after watching the show Mr. Bean's Holiday! Haha..Finally, after so long, I managed to get the show and watch it. Yeah!

It started off with Mr. Bean (played by Rowan Atkinson) coming in lucky with the first prize of a raffle - A trip to Cannes, a video camera and €200. As quite expected, through some sheer bad luck and hilarious actions, Mr. Bean managed to put himself into the unplanned route to Cannes. In the railway station, he unwittingly separated a father-son team who are going to Cannes as well. Being our good old Mr. Bean, he took up the responsibility of reuniting the son and father. Along the uncharted path, Mr. Bean hitchhiked an exactly identical yellow Mini cooper as his, driven by the beautiful Sabine (protrayed by the pretty Emma de Caunes)! Much more bludders followed, but quite expectedly, they make it to Cannes, played out his video recordings during the Cannes Flim Festival and recieved standing ovations! But for Mr. Bean, nothing beats more than reaching the beach in Cannes! =)

'Oui'! It's really a great show. Though I felt that the humor in the beginning is abit dry. Moreover, some of the earlier scenes were reminescence of the TV series, which really makes me wonder if they (producers etc) had run out of ideas! Nonetheless the show made up for it towards the end. It really came as a suprise to see an identical Mini cooper as Mr. Bean's appearing in France! Haha.. And you can really see the glow in Mr. Bean's eyes when he sees the splitting image of his car! Hahaha.. Really enjoyed that scene. I especially like that ending of the show, where all the characters in the show come together on the beach in a musical style, singing 'La Mer' (Beyond the Sea). Haha.. I like the song very much, which really makes me wanna learn french!! Hahaha... Anyone know where I can get that song??

Goofs on the show - The items on Mr. Bean's seafood platter move around on their own a few times!

Au revoir!
