Arthur (1981)


(out of 5)

 is terrific as the spoiled heir to a vast fortune who is told that unless he marries beautiful , the money he is expecting to inherit will not be given to him. Regardless of whether or not he loves her, Moore is required to bring respect to the family name through this marriage, but he is anxious to avoid it if possible. When he meets fun, earthy, free-spirited , he finds a woman that he really clicks with, but his family is too snobby to accept her. This wonderfully funny, expertly written romantic comedy is heightened by a scene-stealing performance by the great , whose dry witticisms as the constantly drunk butler perk up every scene that he is in.
