Bean

Synopsis: At the Royal National Gallery in London, the bumbling Mr. Bean (Rowan Atkinson) is a guard with good intentions who always seems to destroy anything he touches. Unless, of course, he's sleeping on the job. With the chairman (John Mills) blocking Bean's firing, the board decides to send him to a Los Angeles art gallery under false credentials. When Bean arrives, his chaos-causing ways are as sharp as ever, and curator David Langley (Peter MacNicol) has the unenviable task of keeping Bean in line.

CUT TO:

6 people waiting at a gilded lift. They hear a strange sound, and turn

to see what it is. In fact, it's coming from inside the lift. When

the lift doors open, out shoots the Mini through the double doors and

back into the street.

EXT. KNIGHTSBRIDGE. DAY.

Out in the street, BEAN is faced by an accident. There are flashing

lights, a crumpled car, suggestions of hurt passengers. BEAN looks

concerned.

CUT TO:

EXT. THE STRAND. DAY.

An Ambulance roars through the traffic. It reaches its hospital, turns

off, and there, right smack behind it is the Mini. Cut in to see BEAN,

smiling broadly. He whizzes into Trafalgar Square, maybe even across

it, sending pigeons and tourists flying, and parks directly outside the

statuesque National Gallery. Of course, there's not another car there.

Just the Gallery and the mini.

CUT TO:

EXT. NATIONAL GALLERY - DAY

BEAN gets out of the car, takes out his bag - thinks a little, opens it

and takes out a "Doctor on Call' sign. To re-enforce it, he puts a

bone in the back window and a skull of the front seat. Happy with the

arrangement, he re-locks the padlock and sets off smiling up the big,

stairs to work.

As he does so, pan up the building, and into the window of the room

where that Board meeting was taking place.

CUT TO:

INT. NATIONAL GALLERY. BOARDROOM - DAY

GARETH:

Look, I don't hate the man but ...

LORD WALTON:

I know, Gareth. It's the mental strain he inflicts on us all. How is

Professor Bradbury

A grand gentleman, MR MORRISON, pipes up.

I'm MORRISON

Heels got the feeling back in his fingers - but his hands are still

stapled together.

LORD WALTON:

Mmmm, and how far are we with the computer, Hubert?

HUBERT:

Timothy is loading the final catalogue data as we speak, Milord. An

awful thing to say, but when the program's up and running our, Mr. Bean

will become a little less than .... useful?
