Arthur

Meet the world's only lovable billionaire.


Arthur
After 30 years and a failed sequel, Hollywood decided to remake the well-known ''Arthur'' for a new generation. The setup is simple: Arthur is heir to a fortune, and spends all his time wasting the money. One day mommy says he has to marry a particular young women, or lose everything. Unfortunately he is in love with someone else, leaving him with a rather unpleasant choice. Helping him muddle through life and love is his nanny, with her own ideas of how he should be running his life.

Pete Hammond quote iconThis Arthur feels flat and lifeless, especially when compared to its highly successful predecessor.

Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconThis Arthur is not as laugh-out-loud funny as the earlier one.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconOverall, the flick is amusing and funny enough to avoid being the feared complete fiasco many imagined. But with the original still in mind and public drunkenness not being as socially acceptable as it was 30 years ago (yes, 30!), this remake is a sober reminder that you can't always bottle success twice.

Tomatometer quote iconAn irritating, unnecessary remake that demonstrates the libertine charm Russell Brand exudes in supporting roles turn against him when he's star of the show.
