Product Description

In this fresh new look at a classic story, Russell Brand reinvents the role of loveable billionaire Arthur Bach, an irresponsible charmer who has always relied on two things to get by: his limitless fortune and the good sense of his lifelong nanny and best friend Hobson (Helen Mirren), to keep him out of trouble.

Kind-hearted, fun-loving, and utterly without purpose, Arthur spends every day in the heedless pursuit of amusement. But when his unpredictable public image threatens the staid reputation of the family foundation, Bach Worldwide, he is given an ultimatum: marry the beautiful but decidedly unlovable Susan Johnson (Jennifer Garner), an ambitious corporate exec who can keep him in line, or say goodbye to his billion-dollar inheritance and the only way of life he knows.

It's a deal Arthur would be inclined to take...if he hadn't just fallen for Naomi (Greta Gerwig), a New York City tour guide who shares his idealism and spontaneity. The independent Naomi sees Arthur not only for who he is, but for who he could be, and finally gives him a reason to take charge of his own life.

All he needs to do is stand up for what he wants. But at what cost?
With some unconventional help from Hobson-the one person who always believed he could do anything--Arthur will take the most expensive risk of his life and learn what it means to become a man.

Synopsis

In dieser Neufassung der beliebten, Oscar®-preisgekrönten Liebeskomödie Arthur übernimmt Russell Brand die Rolle des sympathischen Milliardärs Arthur Bach: Der verantwortungslose Charmeur hat sich bisher auf zwei Dinge in seinem Leben verlassen: sein ungeheures Vermögen und darauf, dass ihm Nanny Hobson (Oscar®-Preisträgerin Helen Mirren) seit seinen Jugendtagen alle Probleme vom Hals hält. Doch jetzt steht Arthur vor der schwierigsten Wahl seines Lebens: Soll er sich für die arrangierte Ehe mit der ehrgeizigen Managerin Susan (Jennifer Garner) entscheiden, die ihm weiterhin seinen luxuriösen Lebensstil garantiert? Oder wählt er eine ungewisse Zukunft – nämlich das, was er mit Geld nicht kaufen kann: seine große Liebe Naomi (Greta Gerwig). Arthur ist auf Naomis Inspiration und Hobsons unkonventionelle Hilfestellungen angewiesen, als er sich dem teuersten Risiko seines Lebens stellt, um endlich erwachsen zu werden.

great film, awful ending... spoilers below so dont read further if you havent watched the film yet!

SPOILER:

the film was really good and russell brand was perfect for the role as he is naturally eccentric, however i found the ending to relay a bad message...

A. it teaches that you can just do what you want in the end anyway and youll just end up being forgiven and getting your money back anyway so whats the point of his reformation. i thought it would have been nicer for him to be shown living in a small flat with his own job after the scene where they left the library together at the end.

B. it kind of portrays Naomi to be interested in his money which is supposed to just be the evil villain suzannes role. after he rejects suzanne for her and turns up at her apartment telling her he lost all his money she rejects him even though she accepted him before for his flaws when he was rich and when they made up in the end she lit up seeing his cars and the money back and wanted to use them instead of the subway because they were flashier. it just made me feel like she only rejected that cheque he gave her because she thought he would like her more and pick her giving her access to the rest of his wealth. she should have been shown to care less about his money and like him for him instead.

besides that it was funny and a good film to watch!

I recall seeing the original a long time ago, but am not one to concern myself with comparing it to the original. This is a modern take on the Arthur Story and initially I thought Russell Brand would be awful, although I held back, he'd played some parts in other films okay, so why not give it a try.

Russell Brand (Arthur) is convincing, he's eccentric in himself and plays Arthur well, Helen Mirren works as his Nanny well too - the other actors lower this film a little, but as a bit of fun it has moments of laughter, romance, and warmth.

Some films I buy and never watch again, but actually I think I'm quite likely to watch this again.

4*'s - the other actors could have been better (in storyline and cast). Despite that I found it enjoyable.

I loved the original Arthur, but this is a decent remake. Brand (who I normally dislike) is cast quite well in this, partly because of the previous issues in his own life and this movie seems to fit his previous life style and address some need for him to confront them. Helen Mirren really excels and gives a sense of a caring yet cautious figure helping Arthur grow up. For me it's a little too silly, the original is more like "Trading Places" and this modern twist is more like "Ritchie Rich".Both movies should be about happiness meaning more than money, but this latest movie is more about battling addiction. Overall it's a fun and relaxing way to spend an hour or two.

Format: DVD
Russell Brand (Get Him to the Greek) plays Arthur, an alcoholic playboy heir to a billion-dollar company that he will one-day inherit. The only problem is that the shareholders are pretty unhappy about Arthur's reputation, so in order to settle him down, Arthur's mother sets him up with Susan (Jennifer Garner - Elektra), the domineering daughter of another corporate magnate. Arthur, unhappy with his mother's choice, decides to instigate a relationship with the everyday-girl Naomi (Greta Gerwig - Greenberg) and soon falls rapidly in love with her. Naturally, his conscience wrestles with continuing his moneyed existence and marrying Susan, or risking being financially cut-off and following his heart. But will he make the right choice? Time will tell...

2011's Arthur is a straight remake of Dudley Moore's Arthur with pretty much no plot variation at all, it's just been contemporised. Brand plays the same character he always does, drenched in hyperbole and over exaggerated mannerisms but this time with a slightly higher voice (tighter trousers perhaps) - but to be fair, it's still very funny. The man of the match (so to speak) is without a doubt Helen Mirren (

Arthur (Russell Brand) is heir to a massive fortune & therefore spoilt rotten.He can have anything he wants & lives a life of selfish, infantile eccentricity - nothing is too wacky, obnoxious, or cringe -making. While his mother heads a massively rich business, his every wish (almost) is pandered to by his live-in Nanny (Helen Mirren) & Chauffeur. So in the first half of the film we laugh at his idiocy and mind-boggling, over the top lifestyle. Things get more serious when he gets an ultimatum from his mother: marry this filthy rich heiress (which will double the value of the family business) or - lose your inheritance.(all £999,000,000 of it) Or some such amount.

Problem is, Arthur has fallen for a sincere, hard working, straightforward, poor girl. i.e. all the things he isn't. This is when he meets real life, head on. This is also when the film becomes more serious - with less of his cranky behaviour - and we then realise that what matters most in life is to be, kind, understanding and loving. And so does Arthur. The tenor of the film changes as we watch Arthur becoming - almost - normal, and true love winning the day. The film starts as an idiotic fantasy but by the end is very moving and touching.
