Mr. Bean's Holiday
Mr. Bean's Holiday mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the security guard halts Mr Bean (dressed as a grandma) and the supposed kidnapped child, he is asked for his pass. Mr Bean hands the guard an already opened ID style flip card, but when the guard takes it, he is seen opening it as if it were closed.

Factual error: When Mr Bean arrives in Paris from his Eurostar train, he arrives in Paris Nord train station. In reality, the Eurostar platforms are fenced off to prevent train-hoppers and are against the station wall, rather than the middle.

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Bean is walking on the roofs of the cars when going to the beach, the cars in the far right lane change location and disappear between shots.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, when mr Bean has won a camera and a tour to France, he dances around with the camera in one hand and the tickets in the other hand. But in the next shot, he is just holding the camera.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Mr. Bean and Stepan are doing the street performance (for money to Cannes), the sweater Bean grabs from the woman and sticks on his head moves from behind his ears to over his ears, from shot to shot.

Jennifer Kountz

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Bean boards his first train and spills the cappuccino on the laptop, the gentleman sleeping on the right has no coffee cup in his hands. When the shot of both of the men comes back, after Bean wipes the laptop clear, he has a cup in his hands when awaken.

Continuity mistake: On the train, when Bean first sits in front of Stepan and Bean is ripping the paper just after wiggling his ears, the position of Stepan's arms changes between the side shot and the view of him from behind Bean. His arms are right over left in the side shot and left over right in the following shot.

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Bean is being videotaped outside the train and the baggage car passes in front ruining his shot, the end of the video camera shot shows the camera moving closer to Mr. Bean. However the man using the camera doesn't start walking towards Mr. Bean until after he shuts the camera and then starts moving towards him.

Visible crew/equipment: When Stepan is in the car he dresses like a girl and when he puts a wig on you can see a crewmember reflected on the glass window.


Deliberate mistake: In the scene where Mr. Bean is hitch hiking, right before the shot where the truck runs over the wooden box, there is a wide angled shot. The road is very long and it is clear that there is no truck coming. In the next shot, the truck suddenly zooms by from the right of the screen. This can also be seen on the trailer. (00:44:30)

Factual error: When Bean is in the gas station in the French Riviera, the TV of the gas station is showing the news about him in English and not in French.

Revealing mistake: In the market place scene, the DJ is playing and changing CDs. If you look carefully, you can see that none of the CD player's output sockets have cables connected, and neither does the power input socket.

Continuity mistake: When Bean does his busking dance, one of his dance moves is a thrusting motion facing right, but when his camera footage is replaying in the cinema at the end, he's now thrusting to the left.


Continuity mistake: When Stefan is reunited with his parents at the film festival he runs to them and stays with them. When Carson Clay arrives and taps Bean on his shoulder, from the back shot Stefan is now suddenly standing next to Bean.

Waitress on Train: Un café?
Mr. Bean: Ah! Oui.
Waitress on Train: Du sucre?
Mr. Bean: Non.
Waitress on Train: You speak very good French.
Mr. Bean: Gracias.
