ARTHUR (Steve Gordon)

So this is where the ARTHUR's THEME by Christopher Cross came from.

In respect to this as the original, Dudley Moore is hysterically funny, especially when he laughs at his jokes. In the remake Russell Brand is also funny but Moore embodies the rich spoiled persona better.

John Gielgud who plays Hobson, the butler is sarcastic, blunt, and equally funny. Liza Minnelli's big eyes are distracting, but in that scene at the barn where she pretends to beg Dudley Moore for money, she is totally hilarious.

The original and the remake has their own share of pros and cons, but what makes this film shine really is the earnest heart of its main character.

RATING: 4/5
