Arthur: Ah. Ah, well in that case, put on one of her nightgowns and come in here, would you?
Fairchild: Sir?
Arthur: Oh, come on, Fairchild. I know you want it. I've seen the way you look at me.

Caught between the moon and a hard place
10 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

"Arthur 2" was definitely not as good as the first one but then again, "Arthur 2" was really the best that you could do with a sequel to the original. I mean, where do you go after the happy ending of "Arthur"?

There were some very funny lines in the film and it was nice seeing the cast re-unite, but for some reason the original Susan who was played by

Jill Eikenberry was replaced by Cynthia Sikes, who looks very different than Jill. Anyone know why the change?

Do I recommend anyone seeing this film? Only if you really enjoyed the first film otherwise you're not going to really be able to get into "Arthur 2".
