Arthur did not go well at the box office. The movie is the remake of the great movie in 1981 Dudley Moore-John Gielgud, ‘Arthur’. The movie consists of sublime performances, wicked jokes and the soulful relationship between the rich, spoiled drunk and his ironic guardian. But, the director could not do well in remodeling the movie. Other than Russell Brand and Helen Mirren, Jennifer Garner and Greta Gerwig also cast in the movie.

Russell Brand did not have much talent for vulnerability. Arthur Bach is eternally the heir of a dragon lady businesswoman and he represented as a poor little rich boy who always boozes as a shield against a life of alienation. As in the previous version, Brand need to be a fabulously wealthy underdog but he could not be in this movie. He has given up the vital parts of his comic anatomy.

"Film Review Arthur"Russell plays drunkenness as a kind of eminent disinterested, but he never achieves the happy-go-lucky verve of Moore or Johnny Depp’s, Jack Sparrow. As his hard socialite fiancé, Jennifer Garner is so unpleasantly shrewish that one shrinks whenever she returns to the screen. The director, Jason Winer could not do well. Gielgud has won an Oscar award in the original film and if there was an award for the graceful acting in a disaster way then certainly Mirren could take the place right now.
