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

Naomi mentions that her favorite place to shoplift is Bergdorf Goodman's department store. When we meet Linda, Arthur's love interest in the original Arthur (1981), she is shoplifting a tie from that store. 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 »

Quotes

Arthur: I'm talking about Tuscany! White truffle gelato! Have you ever tried white truffle gelato? It makes all other gelato taste like shit.

Dudley must have turned over in his grave
17 April 2011 | by Bill JordanSee all my reviews

Went to see this because my fiancé thought the previews were funny. Admittedly, the previews I had seen made it look funny as well, but I had read some critical reviews, and wasn't enthusiastic. As it turned out, the critics were right, and I applaud the marketing geniuses who were actually able to make "Arthur" look even remotely entertaining. Brand, who I usually like, was nothing better than annoying, and he might have been the best one in the cast. The dialog was silly in parts and completely corny in others, the premise was poorly executed, and the six people at the showing I attended never let out anything more than a slight giggle from time to time, probably out of embarrassment for the performers more than anything else.

On the plus side, if my fiancé ever criticizes any of my cinematic choices, I can remind her of this tripe. That ought to put an end to that conversation.
