Lacking the charm and humor of the original, this unfunny remake is completely unnecessary.

I remember seeing ads for this movie back in 2011 when it got its theatrical release and, having no previous experience with Russell Brand, was instantly turned off by his smirky appearance. "Who does this guy think he's kidding?" I wondered. Well, it turns out the joke was on me because I just watched Arthur on TV and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It works as a comedy thanks to Brand's effortless humour and talent. No it didn't win any Academy awards, and if I had to criticize anything it would be Greta Gerwig's saccharine character, but apart from that the movie is a pleasant surprise. I think most people will likely compare it unfavourably against its original, which is a shame - if you take it for what it is, you will likely find yourself enjoying it as much as I did.

La peli es así maluca, o como me gusta decir, popó en un palo, una pálida versión de la original ochentera; russel brand no tiene el patético encanto de dudley moore (y ni mencionar a la chatía que hace el rol de Liza Minelli, completamente olvidable); lo único rescatable es Hellen Mirren, que donde aparezca, brilla, con esa su dignidad y gravitas tan de ella.

110406: This film grew on me in the days after watching it. Mom didn't like it at all placing most of the blame on Russell Brand. Mom's loyal to the original. It made me laugh a few times and I'm a real sucker right now for a romance.

Not a worthy remake, but there is some charm to it! I don't like the duck faced woman of Hollywood (Jennifer Garner) by the way! I don't care how hot she is, because after all these years, her face still annoys the crap out of me!

Such good dialogue! I don't understand why it's so disliked. I mean, I do. But I don't.

The script is actually alright, the delivery, sometimes, leaves much to be desired.
I could totally imagine a much better movie based on the exact same script, but with Jim Carrey in place of Russell Brand.
The ending was great for a romcom. much more realistic than expected.

A stupid, braindead dozen-comedy that has little or nothing to contibute to the movie world. Watch it the day after a big party, when your brain doesn't want to work. Not even Helen Mirren can make this movie interesting..

Hey Arthur, you get half a star for having Batman and Robin in the opening of the film. Other than that, go die.

If you can tolerate Russell Brand for 2 hours, watch this, if you can't, stay far away because he will just irritate you. The story is cute I suppose, it has a few Haha moments, and 2 laugh out loud moments but other than that, it's just Russell Brand acting crazy. I don't know why he always has to play a drunk, because I think he's a much better actor, and funnier, when he's playing a sober person (Forgetting Sarah Marshall), but I digress. It is watchable for the most part as it has a sweet ending, so as I said, if you can stand the Brand, enjoy.

I think people hate it because it is a remake but I saw it before I new it was a remake and I fairly think that the original sucks.

Never like Russell Brand anyway. Helen Mirren is superb as usual when she is not playing in movies like RED.
