Trivia

The character of Susan Johnson was not played by Jill Eikenberry who had portrayed the character in the original Arthur (1981). This was because Eikenberry was at the time unavailable due to being contracted to the NBC legal drama series L.A. Law (1986) playing Ann Kelsey. The part of Susan Johnson instead in this movie sequel was played by Cynthia Sikes. See more »

a Great feel good film with lots of laughs
25 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

This film is one of my all time greats, and has a feel good feeling. The relationship between Arthur and Linda is outstanding, despite their change of fortunes throughout the film. The humour in this film is similar to films like airplane, where you need to watch it several times to catch every quirk. Although Arthur plays an alcoholic, he is so likable that you cant help but feel sorry for him.
