It's December 31, and Mr. Bean has invited two friends over for a New Year's Eve party! When he realizes he's running low on food, Bean improvises with some unusual snacks to satisfy his guests. The following day, he rushes to the department store to take advantage of a New Year's day sale, and a furniture purchase leads to armchair on car. Later at home, Mr. Bean uses the holiday as an excuse to make some do-it-yourself home improvements even though, as to be expected, he hasn't the slightest clue what he's doing. In the end, Bean gets the job done except for one slight problem.
