Editorial Reviews

Russell Brand reinvents the role of lovable billionaire Arthur Bach, an irresponsible charmer who has always relied on two things to get by: his limitless fortune and lifelong nanny Hobson (Academy Award® winner* Helen Mirren) to keep him out of trouble. Now he faces his biggest challenge: choosing between an arranged marriage to ambitious corporate exec Susan (Jennifer Garner) that will ensure his lavish lifestyle, or an uncertain future with the one thing money can’t buy – Naomi (Greta Gerwig), his true love. With Naomi’s inspiration and some unconventional help from Hobson, Arthur will take the most expensive risk of his life and learn what it means to be a man in this re-imagining of the beloved Oscar®-winning* romantic comedy Arthur.

3.0 out of 5 stars Arthur's theme-less July 8, 2011
Format:DVD
Short attention span summary:

1. Russell Brand does the best that he can do to fill Dudley Moore's shoes. No longer a loveable slushy drunk, Arthur's now a wild boy child, throwing money around doing his best to ease the recession (and possibly share a few std's along the way).

2. Helen Mirren gets caught between the moon and New York City as she lovingly rolls her eyes at his antics and then makes it all better with a stern look and a snappy comment.

3. Greta Gerwig plays his first real love interest (not counting Helen Mirren's character,Hobson), an aspiring writer of children's books by night and an illegal tour guide by day. Her character, Naomi, turns his heart around, and next thing you know, he's closing down the town (or at least Grand Central Station)

4. His fiancée Susan (Jennifer Garner), her dad (Nick Nolte) and his mom (Geraldine James) compete fiercely for the "most unlikeable" award. I know it's crazy, but it's true.

5. Bottom line is that this is an "okay" movie, barely nodding to its predecessor with one short burst of the melody of the original theme song, but at the end of it, you'll wake up way across town and find it's not still with you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brand is a good fit here April 10, 2011
Format:DVD
Whenever a remake is released, comparisons to the original are inevitable. Most people tend to go for the original and remakes are rarely as well liked. The 2011 "Arthur" is a good movie though.
Brand is a comedic actor with unique talents but they fit this role like a glove. He is onscreen virtually every minute and it is on his shoulders this movie rests. His "Arthur" is a more a fun loving playboy than Dudley Moore's sloppy drunk and that is a good thing. No one could top John Gielgud's Oscar winning peformance as Hobson but Helen Mirren does a good job nonetheless. The rest of the movie is well cast although in the original, the father of Arthur's poor lover got off some of the funniest lines of the movie and here, he is mostly invisible.
I don't know that this is a better or worse movie than the 1981 original but it is an enjoyable film. Brand is funny and believable and his charms are just right for this version of "Arthur".

2.0 out of 5 stars Arthur February 15, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I'm being kind by giving this bomb of a movie 2 stars, the original is the best with Dudley Moore even the sequel is much better than this remake. Thank God I got it cheap from Amazon, Maybe the kids of today might like it but not yours truly, I like acting too much not script reading even in a comedy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the first one July 28, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I'm a child of the 70's and loved the first Arthur. So maybe my expectations were too high. This one just didn't live up to the first one with exception of Helen Mirren. Russell Brand did a good enough job but wasn't impressive. And I was sorely disappointed with the actress who played the character Liza Minelli played. Liza played a strong, unforgettable character. This actress didn't. Helen Mirren, IMO, was the only standout. The first Arthur was a classic, this one isn't. Not a bad movie, just a fair movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Another Remake No One Wanted April 13, 2012
Format:DVD
The world was not clamoring for an update of the Oscar-winning "Arthur" (1981), but Warner Bros. didn't listen. Russell Brand delivers zero laughs in the Dudley Moore role, with Helen Mirren a decidedly bizarre choice to fill the shoes of John Gielgud. Sitcom director Jason Winer gives the 2011 version a predictable made-for-TV veneer. Best that you can do . . . is avoid.

2.0 out of 5 stars Meh December 28, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This film had its funny moments but they weren't enough to salvage what was a tepid re-make of an old favorite.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Horrid December 1, 2013
Format:DVD
Horrible movie, the actor starring in it is just not funny...he ruins any sort of enjoyment that could possibly be had from this utter mess of a movie. There is nothing interesting about the actor and how he has gotten a single role in a show or movie is beyond any logic whatsoever.

1.0 out of 5 stars AWFUL December 1, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL. Anyone in thier 20s and younger MIGHT like it because they may not even realize this is a re-make. Anyone who remembers and appreciates the Dudley Moore classic will be completely turned off by this God Awful film. Did I mention it's Awful?
