Arthur 2 - On the Rocks Reviews

Chuck O'Leary
Fantastica Daily

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.

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