The world's richest tipsy wit is living in grand style with former waitress Linda as his wife. The two are thinking of starting a family, but the father of his ex-fiancee hatches a plot to leave Arthur penniless. Now, will Arthur have to take a job?

Customer Reviews

Purchased this movie to add to my library of good family comedy entertainment.

Vengful Bert Johnson (Stephen Elloit) plots to force Arthur to divorce Linda and marry his prized daughter Susan by taking control of the Bock family fortune.

Arthur 2 is one of the greatest movies of all time, even better than than Arthur (the prequel).

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.

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 ›

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!

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.

This 1988 film directed by Bud Yorkin is a sad effort to try to recapture the innoncent charm of the 1981 original. Most of the orginal cast is back except for Jill Eikenberry (who probably knew better!!) and tries to continue the life of Arthur Bock and Linda Merolla (Bock). Vengful Bert Johnson (Stephen Elloit) plots to force Arthur to divorce Linda and marry his prized daughter Susan by taking control of the Bock family fortune. I've never understood what is so funny about a man's life being ruined and his marriage being ripped apart. Dudley Moore tries his best, but after so many bad movies, his audience had grown quite tired of him. Liza Minelli also gives it her best to bring some life and humor to this dreary story. But even her trademark wisecracks and even the ghostly appearence of Hobson (Sir John Geilgud) offer this sinking ship any hope. Actors like Paul Benedict, Jack Gliford and a very young (and at the time unknown) Kathy Bates also try, but ultimately, this film should never have been made. Like so many sequels it's only success is to remind us how good the original was.

This movie was OK. I was disappointed to discover that Arthur seemed to drink just as heavily 5 years later in the storyline. You'd think he'd have cirrohosis by now. Good grief. He has the girl he loves and all the money in the world. What is he escaping? Turns out Burt Johnson, father of the jilted bride from the first movie has a personal vendetta (financial), against him, and thwarts him at every turn, trying to force him into marrying Susan. Again, despite this, and as in the first movie, Arthur is committed to his wife and finally approaches Burt and says "Enough is enough." The thing that was hokey to me is the whole adoption scenario. Arthur needs to quit drinking, which he does late in the film, but I still wonder if he fully appreciates the situation of having to be responsible for another person. The film ends with the two of them committed to each other and their family, but I have to wonder how Arthur will cope with the day in and day out situation in which he now finds himself.
