Arthur is a sparkling entertainment which attempts, with a large measure of success, to resurrect the amusingly artificial conventions of 1930s screwball romantic comedies.

Moore is predictable as the spoiled scion of wealth, Minnelli is terrific as his candid sweetheart, but Gielgud's loyal yet sarcastic servant steals the film.

April 1, 2008
So little care has gone into the characterizations, the structure, and the situations that the film merely feints at significant comedy.

Arthur touches both the heart and the funny bone.

It's the movie we'll forever know Dudley Moore for -- and the late John Gielgud, too, who is put out to pasture about halfway through this classic comedy.

Unfortunately, by the end, saccharine dilutes much of the whiskey sour.

Mr. Gordon's screenplay is full of funny things, and it's beautifully paced, but it's the performances that give the picture its true classiness.

Dudley's drunk act wears thin quickly, but Liza is adorable and Sir John is perfection.
