MOVIE REVIEW: Arthur [Remake]

Arthur     B-

Movie review: Acacia

Arthur is a happy drunk with no pretensions or any ambition. He is also the heir to a vast fortune. Arthur is forced to marry a woman he doesn’t love or lose his inheritance. Arthur proposes but then meets a Linda, played by Liza Minnelli, a woman with no money whom he falls in love with. This was the plot of the original 1981 movie starring the late Dudley Moore. Not much has changed in the 2011 version of the light-hearted comedy.

The new millennium Arthur stars Russell Brand [Arthur Bach] as the loveable drunken billionaire, Helen Mirren his lifelong nanny, Hobson, a straight-talking English woman who treats Arthur like he’s still a naughty child, which his behavior warrants. Their interaction is central to the movie and gives the film its warmth. Hobson is very much a mother figure to Arthur even if he realizes it too late. Through their relationship, Arthur finally grow up. Greta Gerwig makes her big screen debut as Naomi, taking over the love interest role that Liza Minnelli played while Jennifer Garner plays Susan, the cutthroat and ambitious woman that Arthur is ordered to marry. The two women certainly contrast each other, but I didn’t really need nor want their characters in the movie. As I said before, it’s all about Hobson and Arthur.

However, Gerwig played a convincingly sweet woman, someone you wouldn’t be surprised childlike Arthur would fall head over heels for. Jennifer Garner played against type but she sunk her teeth into the role of Susan. She wasn’t given much, but it seemed she relished being a little evil. Neither was the great Nick Nolte, who plays Susan’s father, Burt Johnson. Luis Guzman plays Bitterman, Arthur’s driver and he was wasted in the role because anyone who has seen his work knows he could’ve been hilarious. But, unfortunately, he wasn’t given much to do except say a quip or wear a stupid outfit every once in awhile. Brand and Mirren had decent performances, giving a really thin script some substance. Overall, the movie was sweet and only a little naughty, just like its predecessor.

POSTER: From Prada to Nada

Two spoiled sisters — Nora, a law student, and Mary, an undergrad party girl — live with their father in a luxurious mansion in Beverly Hills. Mary has become so “90210” she refuses to admit she is of Mexican descent. When dad suddenly passes away, their posh lives are turned upside down. They discover they have been left penniless and are forced to move into their estranged aunt Aurelia’s modest but lively home in the Latino-centric Boyle Heights neighborhood of East LA.

They are terrified to leave their world of privilege; neither Nora nor Mary speak Spanish or have ever had to take on actual responsibility. The girls gradually adapt to their new environment; their BMW and Prius are traded for the public bus and a used car. As they embrace the culture that for so long they refused to accept, they both discover romance, the true meaning of family, and they learn that the life of PRADA actually means NADA without love, family and community.

The film stars Wilmer Valderrama, Adriana Barraza, Camilla Belle, Alexa Vega, Kuno Becker and hits theaters in limited release on January 28th, 2011

Owen Wilson Gets 15 Years Airbrushed off His Hall Pass Posters

But when the two men begin to show signs of restlessness at home, their wives (Jenna Fischer, Christina Applegate) take a bold approach to revitalizing their individual marriages: granting them a “hall pass,” one week of freedom to do whatever they want…no questions asked. At first, it sounds like a dream come true for Rick and Fred.

But it isn’t long before they discover that their expectations of the single life-and themselves-are completely, and hilariously, out of sync with reality.
