The most fun money can buy.
Arthur is the world's richest alcoholic. But all is not well in his pickled paradise. He will lose access to the family's great wealth if he doesn't marry the uptight debutante picked out for him by his parents. He's not in love with her, doesn't even like her. What's worse is he's in love with a wacky shoplifter.

"The combination of both elegant and lowdown humor - and this miraculous cast - is irresistible.  Sheila Benson, Los Angeles Times

Editor's Note
Arthur, a very rich, drunken ne'er-do-well, falls in love with a working-class shoplifter just as he is scheduled to marry a properly pedigreed society member. But if he doesn't marry the heiress, he will not inherit a $750 million trust. So Arthur turns to his loyal butler, who is slowly dying, for help. The butler wishes to see Arthur prevail and so manipulates a situation in which the true lovers will come together--and get the loot. But that is a lot easier said than done.

ARTHUR is a charming romantic comedy that features the role that Dudley Moore was born to play. Whether taking limo trips through Central Park with prostitutes, playing with his train set, having a bath in a top hat, or wanting just a tuna-fish sandwich, Arthur, perfectly portrayed by Moore, is one of the most likable onscreen characters in cinema history. John Gielgud as his loyal, dry-witted butler is an out-and-out riot. And Liza Minnelli turns in one of her sweetest performances as the woman Arthur's family demands he stop dating. Steve Gordon's film is an absolute joy to watch, a perfect piece of celluloid entertainment that never fails to please no matter how many times one has seen it.

Professional Reviews

Variety
"...Sparkling entertainment....Moore is a delightful riot throughout and builds considerable sympathy..." 07/13/1981

New York Times
"...A terrifically engaging, high-spirited screwball comedy....[Minnelli and Moore] play together with the kind of energizing verve that one sees more frequently in the legitmate theater than on film..." 07/17/1981 p.C10
