The role of Hobson is played by Helen Mirren. In the original Arthur (1981) movie and its sequel, Hobson was played by John Gielgud who won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for this part in 1982. Mirren and Gielgud both once appeared in the same movie and that was Caligula (1979). See more »

This film is about a young alcoholic man who has to marry a woman whom he does not love, so that he can get his billion dollar inheritance from his mother.
"Arthur" is a lighthearted comedy about a rich young man, who is still a child at heart. He has no sense of responsibility, as he does not have to work for any of the material wealth he has. Despite his immaturity and egocentricity and childishness, Arthur is a likable character. If other comedians portray him, he would easily become irritating and even offensive. So well done to Russell Brand. The romantic comedy element is also engaging and entertaining, so I find "Arthur" a good film for brainless entertainment.
