Bean

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Thurs­day 13 April @ 10.35AM, ITV2

A silly film from a clever man, who’s very se­ri­ous about cars. Rowan Atkin­son, the man who’s owned a McLaren F1 and an As­ton Martin V8 Za­gato, stars as Mr Bean in the char­ac­ter’s first full film out­ing. Sadly, it doesn’t have the Mini 1000 from the TV se­ries, but nev­er­the­less there’s an abun­dance of beau­ti­ful clas­sics, even if they’re in the back­ground. This fast-paced flick cen­tres on Bean head­ing to the States to over­see a paint­ing, which is mov­ing from Lon­don to Los An­ge­les. The best car scene has Bean rid­ing shot­gun in a red Ford Mus­tang, top down, and mak­ing rude hand ges­tures to by­standers. The ea­gleeyed among you will also spot a Rolls-Royce Sil­ver Wraith out­side the mu­seum, a BMW 2002 in a sub­ur­ban street at night, and a Volvo 265 es­tate wait­ing coolly at a set of traf­fic lights.
