I saw the film ARTHUR when it first came out (1981) and I was about 14. I thought it was hysterical. I watched it again not long ago- it’s still funny. I wouldn’t put it on my Top 5 list but it’s great for what it is- zany escapist romantic comedy. While it’s never really explained how Dudley Moore- scion of an enormously rich NYC family- has a working class English accent, you don’t really care, especially when his butler Hobson (John Gielgud) supplied all the arrogance anybody could possibly need in a performance that earned him a deserved Academy Award.
They made a sequel to it- Arthur on the Rocks- in 1988. It had its moments, mainly the cameo by Gielgud, and also a role by a pre-famous Kathy Bates, but generally skippable.
More skippable would seem to be the ongoing remake. Russell Brand is the title character with Helen Mirren as the Hobson figure. (I can see Judi Dench much easier in the role.)
