Goofs

When Arthur falls into the boiler room and crawls behind the machinery, the stunt performer stops when he thinks he's hidden, but his shoes and posterior are still visible to the camera. Even though we can still see him there, Arthur is already up and walking out of the place across the room from this. See more »

It's great it's great. I just' fell out of the f*****n car. Is that the funniest thing ever? Pahhahaa!!
17 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

I played the NYC Policeman in the scene with Dudley Moore and Sir John Gielgud. Where Hobson first appears to Arthur. It was an honor to share the screen with the two of them however briefly. This also was my feature film debut. Shucks. I know it was a small speaking part but to be acting with royalty such as Sir John of all people and Dudley of course. The original Arthur movie has always been one of my favorite comedies. I knew every line of the first movie. So, naturally when my agent called and told me about how small the role would be but, I would have the chance to do the a scene with these two pros. I jumped at the chance. I auditioned for Bud Yorkin and he cast me. After all is said and done. I'm proud of the little moment I shared with Dudley's Arthur and Mr. Gielgud's Hobson. God rest both of their souls.
