Storyline

Arthur is a rich, alcoholic playboy with no regards to his working life. After another drunken run-in with the law, his aloof mother has had enough and forces him to marry Susan, a proper business woman, or else he will lose his inheritance. Just as he's engaged to Susan, he meets Naomi, a free-spirited girl who Arthur thinks is perfect for him. Any attempts at holding down a job are fruitless, so Arthur has to decide, what is more important: love, or his mother's money. Written by napierslogs

Trivia

In order to see the dedication in Naomi's book, Arthur moves a pop-up moon over a Manhattan skyline scene. This is a tribute to the line "If you get caught between the moon and New York City," in Christopher Cross' "Arthur (1981)'s Theme" song. See more »

Goofs

When Arthur is talking to Susan's father in the Johnson Tower, and they put on the safety glasses, Burt's ear hook goes behind the ear and then on top of the ear and then back behind the ear. See more »

Haters gonna Hate
10 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this film was simply brilliant. The acting in it was great, the comedic timing perfect, the script well written, and the setting well shown. Yes, once again it is a movie set in New York, but there's a reason why they can't having them there. It's an amazing city. And this movie showcases that very well. I appreciated the range of humor they had in there as well. Some of it was raunchy, and then at other times it was mild and a relief from some of the over the top jokes. The climax was well done, humorous yet tasteful at the same time, and the conclusion was very appropriate.

I heard some people complaining about how this movie was showcasing how rich people have it made and it wouldn't be received well today because of the economic climate. That was ridiculous. If anything, it shows how money really can't buy happiness, and that the most important thing in this world is that we have each other. Overall, very enjoyable film that one should go into with an open mind and just have a good time.
