ARTHUR (review)

Produced by Chris Bender, Russell Brand, Michael Tadross,
Larry Brezner, Kevin McCormick, J.C. Spink
Written by Jared Stern and Peter Baynham
Based on characters created by Steve Gordon
Directed by Jason Winer
Starring Russell Brand, Jennifer Garner, Greta Gerwig, 
Helen Mirren, Nick Nolte, Luis Guzmán

The thing about alcoholics is that they really aren’t that much fun to be around.

Or watch.

I was actually a bit surprised that this unnecessary remake of the 1981 film of the same name actually handled Arthur Bach’s alcoholism, whereas the trailers have promoted him as a man-child dressing as Batman and working in a candy store.

The cast all does a fine job with the exception of Nolte, who appears as if he was woken up just moments before filming each of his scenes.

Arthur isn’t necessarily a bad film, just an unnecessary one about a mess of a human being without any tangible sense of reality or mortality. 

And it’s a bit dull.  Unless of course you see it drunk, which kind of defeats the point.
