British humor and fantasy in a romantic story where Liza Minelli gives a nice interpretation. Such film has the touch of simplicity and honesty. We liked to watch it a second time.
absolutely loved this version of Arthur which I was not expecting too as I hate the original. This was funny & Sweet and even had me in tears a few times. It was beautifully done. A funny film with a rare insight into addiction done in a way that was not confronting of offensive. I laughed and I cried. Gonna buy a copy for sure
Dudley Moore makes me want to weep with joy whenever I see him, this is a wonderfully warm
Dudley moore at his best, so funny, will never grow old.
Dudley Moore is superb in his role as Arthur Bach. His performance is very sympathetic, and you can't help but love him and feel a need to look after him.
I never really understood his character when I watched this gem from 1981, but now I do and am looking forward to watching Arthur 2- On The Rocks.
Liza Minelli is surprisingly good in her role as Linda Marolla as well. There's a lot of Liza with a 'Z 'and Sally Bowles but she played this role with a wonderful down-to-earth humility.
Sir John Gielgud has a brilliant supporting role as Arthur's caring Valet and mentor. He has the best lines and steals most of the comic scenes while looking extremely elegant, dapper and humorous at the same time.
Geraldine Fitzgerald is Arthur's feisty and powerful grandmother, Martha Bach and is most charming with her wonderful voice and diction.
Don't miss out on this great film!
Still a Classic. My kids enjoyed Arthur as much as I did.
An all time favourite of mine. This is the movie that made Dudley Moore a star in Hollywood and it is a riot. Arthur is a rich, spoilt, immature, drunken playboy but as played by Moore is also funny and loveable. The relationship between Arthur and his butler Hobbs, played by the brilliant Sir John Gielgud is the real heart of the film despite the presence of the terrific Liza Minnelli as Arthur's love interest. This movie is incredibly funny and hasn't dated at all. If you havent seen it you are in for a treat.
Old favourite, with great cast. Funny and entertaining. Sir John Gielgud has the best part and the greatest lines - worth a look just for him. 2.5 to 3 paws
It got better with age, I just loved this funny comedy - great story, great acting and funnier each time I see it.
Always have been a Cuddly Dudley fan. This movie, is funny, poignant and topped off with the great theme music.
