Overrated one-joke comedy.

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

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

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

Even if Dudley Moore's performance weren't so darn funny, it would still be worth watching just for John Gielgud.

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

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.
