    Born to play this role international superstar Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean) is at his most pleasurable best. Inept with a capital I This buffoon manages to turn every encounter, no matter how innocent into complete chaos.

With no Austin Powers in Sight enjoy a hilarious comical espionage lark sure to give you more than a few chuckles thanks to the zaniness of it all. And some well-placed classic bind iconic trademark lampooning make the whole experience all the more worthwhile.
