Right in the beginning I'd like to point out that I have never nor will I ever compare a remake with the original because this would attract expectations and a movie is to be seen as an individual piece! What do you expect from a movie with Russel Brand? Probably not too much depth! It is a pop corn movie in some way and if you settle for that you will give this movie probably 5 points! However if you decide to let this movie sink in a little bit you either love it or hate and that is because of Russel Brand! You love him or hate him... I love him because he can pack 4 punchlines into one sentence and either you find that annoying or funny! I actually laughed a lot during this movie and I thought the cast was absolutely brilliant! Now again big words for a Pop Corn Movie but there is indeed a bit more to it! Hellen Mirren has given this film some seriousness that was unexpected and without giving too much away the relationship between Arthur and his Nanny (Helen Mirren) is the key to the story! The movie has 3 acts white the first act is a comedy, the second act a love story and the third act a drama with charming comedy the whole thing was unexpectedly good! I was surprised about Greta Gerwig playing the love interest Naomi! Usually Hollywood likes to point out by stunning looks who the one is we have to cheer for but Gerwig is just a very natural woman which was important for the plot and while it was overdrawn in almost any parts it had believable moments! The Movie clearly shows what we forget to appreciate in our daily lives. The main plot was love or money but in this remake the entire movie had a sub text to it where it is about friendship, family and the little things in live like a bowl of soup! That is mainly why I loved this movie! I saw the original, I knew how it would end so that was no bog thing but portraying Arthur as an addict was a great idea! I can't give for a comedy 10 stars but i give it proper 8 stars rating simply because it surprised me with the parallel plot! Worth to watch it and absolutely not to compare to the original which is the only way to go!
