Classic worth watching

It's interesting to rewatch this 30 years later. We didn't think anything at all about Mr Bean's bare bum or some wine. Even flipping the bird was no big deal. Times have changed. But also, there's cultural differences. In the US there's maybe less tolerance for things like that

This title has:

Great role models
