Arthur

Rated PG 110 min. 2011

Russell Brand steps into the late Dudley Moore’s shoes as a drunken, irresponsible heir to a family fortune who’s leveraged into a loveless marriage just as genuine romance and maturity are budding. Where the 1981 original emphasized Arthur’s alcoholism, Brand doubles down on infantilism, dressing up in superhero costumes and whining to his nanny Hobson (Helen Mirren in a role originated by John Gielgud). Brand has some good chemistry with Mirren, along with the always disarming Greta Gerwig as his true love and Jennifer Garner as his bitchy fiancée, and his ad-libs yield a few mild yuks. The new Arthur is a worthy diversion, a slightly above average romantic comedy that depends heavily on its lead performer---which is to say it’s a lot like the old Arthur.–Matt Semansky
