Arthur (2011)

An update of the 1981 film of the same name, starring rent-a-fop Russell Brand in the role that Dudley Moore made famous, from the director of TV's Modern Family and the writer of Borat.

Brand plays a charming drunk in New York who is on the way to losing a hefty inheritance when he falls for a woman his family doesn't like (Greta Gerwig, Greenberg). They'd rather he married wealthy heiress (Jennifer Garner), but he's just not that into her...

Even the Brit-wit chemistry of Russell Brand and Helen Mirren can't offset the self-conscious degree to which this tame, calculated effort sticks to its source.

So it's back to the remakes we go for cinematic inspiration.

The star does his patented shtick, supported by a handful of blue-chip supporting performers, as the story lurches through contrived, seminaughty comic set pieces toward a sentimental ending.

A fairly close remake of the great 1981 Dudley Moore movie, with pleasures of its own.

In the end, it isn't so much that the New Arthur isn't the Old Arthur. Rather it's the anti-Arthur.
