Ileana’s Movie Review: Arthur

Starring: Russell Brand, Helen Mirren, Jennifer Garner, Greta Gerwig
Summary: Arthur (Brand) is a drunken man-child who spends his days causing trouble and squandering his vast fortune. In an attempt to finally mature him his mother arranges a marriage to Susan (Garner), a woman he does not love or even like. Instead he falls for sweet and lovable Naomi (Gerwig). Unfortunately Arthur stands to lose his inheritance if he doesn’t go through with the arranged marriage to Susan. Arthur then has to decide what is more important to him love or money. The only person Arthur trusts and listens to is his nanny Hobson (Mirren), who is like a surrogate mother for him.
This role was originally portrayed by the late Dudley Moore in 1981.
I’m usually not a fan of remakes so I went into this movie with low expectations. And while it exceeded my expectations it didn’t really capture the essence of the original. Admittedly I’m not a huge fan of Russell Brand but I just didn’t find his portrayal to be very endearing. There are funny parts in it but not enough to save the whole movie.
Rated: PG-13 – For alcohol use throughout, sexual content, language, and some drug references.
Grade: C
