5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! December 20, 2006
Format:DVD
I'm not sure what everyone is talking about. I thought that this movie was great. For the one who gave a synopsis that Arthur and Linda weren't happily married didn't watch the movie. That was not the case at all.

This movie has all the same characters including Burt Johnson, Arthurs fiance from the original's father. Burt Johnson is still continually trying to get Arthur to marry Susan. He makes it so Arthur looses his all of his money. Arthur and Linda continually try to find an place to live..Burt gets them thrown out. Arthur tries to get a job...he gets fired because of Burt Johnson. Susan confronts Linda and Linda realizes that they are not going to give up, so Linda gives up fighting for her and Arthur.

I love this movie. Sometime I think that I like it more then the original because it's a more believable story then the original. Its more "down to earth"

I would recommend this to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Oscar winner on the rocks! January 26, 2005
Format:DVD
In 1982,the late Dudley Moore won a Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of Arthur Bach in the first film. Much of his fellow cast members returned for the sequel. One who didn't was Jill Eikenberry who played Susan Johnson in the first film. Eikenberry,at the time this film was made,was a cast member of the NBC legal drama L.A. LAW. She was unable to reprise the role so Cynthia Sikes filled Eikenberry's shoes. Arthur and Linda(Liza Minnelli) are now married and Arthur lost his mega-fortunes to Susan Johnson's father(Stephen Elliott). Elliott did appear in the first film. One day,Arthur ran into Susan's father while he(the father) was hunting. Arthur is promised his money back on the condition that he divorces Linda and marries Susan. Arthur and Susan almost got married in the first film but Arthur confessed his love for Linda to Susan at the very last minute. At this point,Arthur no longer cared for the money. All he cared about was Linda. Arthur was relentlessly seeking employment and in one scene when he was on his way out,in came Mrs. Canby(Kathy Bates) who runs an employment agency. Arthur was also concentrating on giving up booze. Arthur did find employment as a sales associate at a hardware store but was fired after his first shift. The new owner of the business elected to terminate Arthur,not his/her predecessor. Again,Susan's father is angry because Arthur remained with his loyal wife. Susan,an art gallery owner,forgave Arthur for dumping her in the first film. Susan didn't seem to be upset about Arthur remaining with Linda. In the last scene,Arthur is back in the money. How I love those happy endings! The out-of-print movie soundtrack includes Kylie Minogue's cover of the 1962 Little Eva hit LOCOMOTION. Read more ›

1.0 out of 5 stars A sorry followup to a screen classic December 6, 2005
Format:DVD
This is a truly unfunny followup to the classic Arthur. Arthur and Linda are married, unfortunately not happily married. They want to adopt a baby but first Arthur must sober up. Even a visit by Hobson's ghost (Gielguld) cannot bring life into this uninspired sequel.

The original writer and director Steve Gordon died shortly after the original was released and it is obvious that it is missing his touch.

Don't waste your time or money on this one. Watch the original!

2.0 out of 5 stars A mistake September 28, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This was a movie that should not have been made. Arthur's behavior in the first flick was amusing. Here it becomes increasingly tiresome, and you begin to question his wife's sanity at putting up with it. The cast tries (Liza looks great), and it's lushly produced, but they should have better left alone. Gielgud is wasted, although he does get the film's best line.

2.0 out of 5 stars Why did this film have to be done? August 21, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Why, oh why did this film have to be done? It is not at all funny and touching at all. The only appearance that was worthwhile in this film was of John Gielgud as Arthur's butler, as an angel. This was not even worth it. They should just have left it where it was at the end of the first movie. Let's face it. That Gordon guy could have made a lot of good films, had he been alive. I could see a lot of excellent films just like Arthur. But when Gordon died, Arthur did too. It seems that the only reason this film was made was to try to reap the profits that the first one made. This film is not worth it in any way (Except for John Gielgud). Don't watch it, unless you are really bored one day.

1.0 out of 5 stars UFFDA.... May 16, 2006
Format:DVD
That`s Norwegian for "Ooops"....

This is a tiresome "pastiche" in which Dudley Moore has lost the charms from 1981 and is just plain annoying. This happens with drunks in real life as well.... the charms and fun just escapes them when they reach the middleage and still refuses any kind of commitment...

This is a needless sequel. The only reason it was made must have been because the stars filmcareers had come to a halt... It`s like a tiresome homemovie...

Still, Liza Minnelli is a pleasure to see(though there is no depth in her charcter as well)...

They ALL should have known better....

5.0 out of 5 stars Most underrated sequel ever January 6, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
"Arthur 2: On the rocks" was panned when it came out because people were still awash in the heady rush created by the superb "Arthur", and anything with a "2" in the title that was released in the 80's just had to be bad.

Truth is, this is a fine sequel, one that actually ( a rare trait in 80's sequels) continues the story of Arthur and his bride as they attempt to create a family, and are forced to deal with sudden poverty in the process.

Dudley Moore is in top form, and even Liza Minelli- who generally grates on my nerves- is entertaining here.

Don't let that late 80's cynicism fool you - check out this wonderful little comedy. You'll be pleasantly surprised.

Favorite Line: "Honey, I'm home. We're poor."

Oh yeah, this one's a keeper.
