The basement New York clinic set was one of the first completed stage sets; excepting this set's revisions had repeated major modifications. Compared to a TV budgeted set, the clinic set should have cost $16,000.00. Every time the director and production designer would fly into Los Angeles, from their New York filming schedule, to survey the progress of their stage sets under construction, the director would order character wall treatments added to the clinic set. The lower bottom vertical set walls were extended forward, with bulging wood ribs skinned with chicken wire, stuffed with newspapers, then finished in a plaster skim coat. With each of their round trip-visits, the walls were repeatedly added with more bulging layers. Their theory, such a NY building would have had the upper floors weight, forcing the sinking of the lower basement walls, causing the sag! The final cost of this small typical film (TV) office stage set, instead, skyrocketed as a film mega wonder for a final cost of $250,000.00! A money power struggle had developed between the studio and the production company with this as an example of "I'll show you how much we can spend!" See more »

"Arthur 2" was definitely not as good as the first one but then again, "Arthur 2" was really the best that you could do with a sequel to the original. I mean, where do you go after the happy ending of "Arthur"?
There were some very funny lines in the film and it was nice seeing the cast re-unite, but for some reason the original Susan who was played by
Jill Eikenberry was replaced by Cynthia Sikes, who looks very different than Jill. Anyone know why the change?
Do I recommend anyone seeing this film? Only if you really enjoyed the first film otherwise you're not going to really be able to get into "Arthur 2".
