Continuity mistake: On the train, when Bean first sits in front of Stepan and Bean is ripping the paper just after wiggling his ears, the position of Stepan's arms changes between the side shot and the view of him from behind Bean. His arms are right over left in the side shot and left over right in the following shot.Neil Jones
Continuity mistake: When Mr. Bean is being videotaped outside the train and the baggage car passes in front ruining his shot, the end of the video camera shot shows the camera moving closer to Mr. Bean. However the man using the camera doesn't start walking towards Mr. Bean until after he shuts the camera and then starts moving towards him.
Deliberate mistake: In the scene where Mr. Bean is hitch hiking, right before the shot where the truck runs over the wooden box, there is a wide angled shot. The road is very long and it is clear that there is no truck coming. In the next shot, the truck suddenly zooms by from the right of the screen. This can also be seen on the trailer. (00:44:30)
Revealing mistake: In the market place scene, the DJ is playing and changing CDs. If you look carefully, you can see that none of the CD player's output sockets have cables connected, and neither does the power input socket.
