The excruciating "Arthur 2 on the Rocks" should come with a surgeon general's warning: "This sort of stupidity may sap your will to live or to watch movies ever again."

A romantic comedy with a fatal flaw: it's rarely funny.

Believe it or not, things get even worse as the film moves towards its predictable happy ending. You have been warned.

It would have been better for Warners to have left well enough alone.

Not as classy a farce as the original, but still manages to be an amusing romp for most of its length.

Unnecessary sequel to now politically incorrect comedy of alcoholism. Great cast, however.

As funny as a cerebral haemorrhage.

Doesn't have as many big laughs as the classic 1981 original, but the characters are still likable enough for this to merit a passing grade.
| Original Score: 3/5

Y'know, I gotta side with the first Arthur movie, but this wasn't painful in any particular way.

A doughy, unimaginative spin-off beyond any saving by its two resourceful stars.

It's not a sequel, it's a relapse.

If "Arthur 2" has any significance, it's to herald -- unwittingly -- the death of the Happy Drunk in the movies.

It decides that Arthur must grow, must rise to an occasion, must for once take responsibility for his life. This is very good for Arthur, but not so good for the film.
