Man Vs Bee, Netflix review - or should it be Bee vs Bean?

Rowan Atkinson's new comic character is no Blackadder.

Rowan Atkinson on perfectionism, bees and a Bean stadium tour

"What we have always talked about is doing a Mr Bean stadium tour. Something like 'Bean Town', where Bean drives his Mini around different shops across the stadium - that kind of idea."

Review: Man Vs Bee, Netflix

I hesitated about reviewing Man Vs Bee. While I grew up loving Rowan Atkinson I'm grown up now and had decided his recent work was on the childish side. But as there has been something of a buzz about Man Vs Bee I thought I'd better take a look. Glad I did. It's excellent. And not just for kids.

For offering a quick burst of expertly performed silliness, Man Vs Bee earns its stripes.

Man Vs Bee review

The actor is at his comic best as an accident-prone housesitter who goes on a rage spree and destroys a high-tech home in an epic battle.

Who is the real Rowan Atkinson?

One of our greatest comic talents has a reputation for deadly seriousness off-screen. Is that fair? His Man Vs Bee co-writer reveals all.

Man Vs Bee, review

Rowan Atkinson's bumbling comic creation seems awfully familiar.

Anita Singh, The Telegraph, 20th June 2022

Man Vs Bee review

The freshest thing here is the format - episodes that are just 10-15 minutes long. Atkinson has lost none of his skill and you will watch it quite happily, but it just lacks the genius of Mr Bean.
