    Synopsis


    Arthur
    The immature heir to a billion-dollar empire finds himself cut off from the family fortune after rejecting his arranged marriage to a nouveau riche socialite, and instead falling for a free-spirited unlicensed tour guide in this remake of the sentimental 1981 comedy starring Dudley Moore. Arthur (Russell Brand) was raised in the lap of luxury. His family is wealthy beyond compare, and ever since he was a child his every whim has been catered to by his nanny, Hobson (Helen Mirren), and his chauffeur, Bitterman (Luis Guzman). But the party starts to wind down when Arthur's domineering mother (Geraldine James) insists that he marry Susan (Jennifer Garner), the daughter of a self-made millionaire (Nick Nolte) who isn't above intimidating his future son-in-law into marriage. Vehemently opposed to the idea due to the fact that he and Susan have nothing in common, Arthur rejects the proposal after falling in love with Linda (Greta Gerwig), an aspiring children's book author who pays the rent by giving unofficial tours of Grand Central Station. As a result, Arthur has to decide if he can face life as a normal member of the working class -- and without his trusty flask of booze. Television veteran Jason Winer (Modern Family) directs from a script by Peter Baynham (Brüno, Borat). ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      I saw this on Blu Ray for the first time when I rented it from Blockbuster it was hilarious made me watch Original and was just as good. Granted they changed a couple of parts. But Russell Brand as Arthur Was a Superb choice. It was so good I bought it a week later on Blu Ray from Best Buy I can't wait until Friday/Saturday when I receive this movie so I can watch it again and again. Great fun! Finally A remake we can all Appreciate and Love!

      Arthur is comedy and romance, serious and funny. When millionaire playboy Arthur is forced to choose between love and riches the hilarity that ensues is priceless. From wild nights out dressed at Batman, to bailing his fellow cellmates out of jail, there is never a dull moment. Helen Mirren is amazing and Luis Guzman is wonderful as Arthur's friend/driver.

      When I heard they remade "Arthur", I originally thought it was an insult to Dudley Moore. I finally saw the movie and believe it doesn't insult him as much. The acting at times was just okay compared to the original but, it does have it's moments. One of the few movies I actually could stand Russell Brand. "I'll take it and the transportation device in which it stands".

      Not as Good as the Original

      This remake from the 1981 "Arthur" (with Dudley Moore) does not even come close to being funny. They weakened the plot and the acting is very bad. Buy the original, see it, and you will know what I mean.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      This was a great movie, saw it at the theater and had to own it. I have not seen the original, but this remake was fun. I love Russel at Arthur, and Helen Mirren is brilliant.
