He must choose between an arranged marriage that will keep him in the money or a more-modest life with the only woman (Greta Gerwig) he has ever loved. A remake of the 1981 Oscar-winning film.

  • Gordon, who died shortly after the first Arthur, never had to see the luckless 1988 sequel that made his beloved characters seem like strangers. The new Arthur, insipid when it should be infectious, leaves the same deadly impression. show more

  • The movie lacks joy. It has poignancy and intelligence, and it holds interest, but it never opens up into happiness and fantasy. Maybe it's the recession. show more

  • Despite his cockney-accented verbosity, Brand does not convey the effortless conviviality that Dudley Moore did in the part. show more

    I wasn\'t at all interested in watching this movie. I figured it couldn\'t touch the original. So one day, my husband just happened to be watching it on cable and I sat down to drink coffee...not really interested in watching it. After about 15 miniutes and a full hour into the movie, I asked him to start the movie from the beginning ! He had no problem with doing that as he thought it was hilarious. So, yes I would definitely recommend. Don\'t compare it to the original. It\'s a different movie and should be watched as such.
