  • 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

  • When remaking a popular film, you must remember this: First, do no harm to the original. Arthur accomplishes this, with Russell Brand slurring his way neatly through the title role. 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.

    Really well done kids Christmas movie. Will be one that you rent every year for the Holidays. Decent plot and surprisingly good graphics. Worth seeing.
