It is the second film based on the television series Mr. Bean, following the 1997 Bean. The film was theatrically released on 24 March 2007 by Universal Pictures.

The film received mixed reviews from critics, but earned $229.7 million on a $25 million budget. Mr. Bean's Holiday was released on DVD and HD DVD on 27 November 2007.

Rita Streich (December 18, 1920 – March 20, 1987), was one of the most admired and recorded lyric coloratura sopranos of the post-war period.

"O mio babbino caro" ("Oh My Beloved Father") is a soprano aria from the opera Gianni Schicchi (1918) by Giacomo Puccini to a libretto by Giovacchino Forzano. It is sung by Lauretta after tensions between her father Schicchi and the family of Rinuccio, the boy she loves, have reached a breaking point that threatens to separate her from Rinuccio. It provides an interlude expressing lyrical simplicity and single-hearted love in contrast with the atmosphere of hypocrisy, jealousy, double-dealing, and feuding in the medieval Florence of Puccini's only comedy. It provides the only set-piece in the through-composed opera.

The short aria consists of 32 bars and takes between 2½ and 3 minutes to perform. It is written in A-flat major with the time signature of 6/8 and a tempo indication of andantino ingenuo (eighth note=120). The vocal range extends from E?4 to A?5, with a tessitura of F4 to A?5. The 5-bar orchestral prelude, in E-flat major and 3/4 time, consists of octave tremolos by the strings; in the opera, these five bars are Gianni Schicchi's words ("Niente!") at the end of his preceding dialogue with Rinuccio. Many recital arrangements start with a presentation of the melodic theme; the remaining accompaniment uses strings and a harp playing broken chords.


Italian:

O mio babbino caro
Mi piace è bello, bello
Vo' andare in Porta Rossa
a comperar l'anello!
Sì, sì, ci voglio andare!
e se l'amassi indarno,
andrei sul Ponte Vecchio,
ma per buttarmi in Arno!
Mi struggo e mi tormento!
O Dio, vorrei morir!
Babbo, pietà, pietà!
Babbo, pietà, pietà!

Literal Translation:

Oh my dear papa,
I love him, he is handsome, handsome.
I want to go to Porta Rossa
To buy the ring!
Yes, yes, I want to go there!
And if my love were in vain,
I would go to the Ponte Vecchio
And throw myself in the Arno!
I am anguished and tormented!
Oh God, I'd like to die!
Papa, have pity, have pity!
Papa, have pity, have pity!

Singable English:

Oh my beloved father,
I love him, I love him!
I’ll go to Porta Rossa,
To buy our wedding ring.
Oh yes, I really love him.
And if you still say no,
I’ll go to Ponte Vecchio,
And throw myself below.
My love for which I suffer,
At last, I want to die.
Father I beg, I beg.
Father I beg, I beg.

Traducción al español:

Oh mi padre querido
Me gusta, es bello, bello
¡Iré a la Puerta Roja
a comprar el anillo!
¡Sí, sí, allí quiero ir!
¡Y si le amase en vano,
iría sobre el Puente Viejo
pero para arrojarme al Arno!
¡Me angustio y me atormento!
¡Oh Dios, quisiera morir!
¡Papá, piedad, piedad!
¡Papá, piedad, piedad!
