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

hilarious
25 December 2011 | by (Roanoke, VA) – See all my reviews

Looking for a funny bit to enjoy with some friends, I was very pleased with the outstanding one-liners and Russell Brand's silly antics. I was pleasantly surprised with the sweet romantic plot and deeper underlying plot. Not having seen the original, I had no expectations and I really loved the laugh. I think the motherly relationship between Arthur and Hobson added to the complexity of the situation between Arthur and his mother, as did the parallel between the death of Arthur's father and Naomi's mom. The depth of Naomi's character also added to the growth of Arthur's character and promoted an emotional connection. Surprisingly sweet, Arthur (2011) is a secretly lovely romance with the added seriousness of alcoholism and the complexity of deep loving relationships.
