Ah, I was about to say, that's pretty high score for a remake which got a lukewarm reception at best.

I'm going to regret this ... did you see the original and what are your thought on it?

I might see "Arthur" just out of my sympathy for Jennifer Garner, but not because Russel is in there. If I am not mistaken, he also played in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall", which I simply turned off after just a few minutes of watching. It was horrible, to say the least. They tried to make something extraordinary, but they just made another piece of extraordinary sh...

I still think that sounds like THE most arrogant (and ego-centric) title you could give a movie (and it deserves a Razzie for that alone).

I agree. Only REALLY bad stuff that's worse than The Last Airbender can be compared with Seltzerburg... wait a minute! Seppuku? That derives from "setsu" (slice) and "fuku" (abdomen). Don't see Seltzerburg's 2012 film then, because we can't afford for you to slice your abdomen! (By the way, is it called "The Biggest Movie of All Time 3D"?)
 
On topic: I still support giving this only 1 RAZZIE nom: Hop and Arthur [remake] for Russell Brand.

Comparing to Seltzerberg is a little harsh: not once during Arthur did I consider sepukku.

So we weren't too far off when we all claimed that this movie could have easily passed as a Seltzerberg flick entitled "Remake Movie"!

Yes, I liked the Aldous Snow movies. As for point two, I know that was a joke, but since they were, most likely, inspired by the Tim Burton Batman movies, it seems odd to have a reference to history's greatest monster's Batman movies.

1)Wait.Did you like those 2 movies?
2)I haven't seen this movie,but I get the feeling they made that as a joke.

That's because they were flukes. The dude is not funny unless he is backed by a good writer/director.

Got around to seeing this and here's my review. It will be done in the style of my Trannies 3 review. 
 
The good: 
Greta Gerwig: She's possibly the only true good thing about it. 
Helen Mirren: She was okay as Hobson, not as good as Gielgud was in the original though. 
 
The bad: 
Nick Nolte: He's not very good and it's obvious that he needs money. 
The script: While the script doesn't match Trannies 3 in it's idiocy, it's still pretty bad.
The song: I hate this song more than words can describe. The only reason it's not in the ugly section because it's not as bad as the original version by Christopher "Grammy theif" Cross.
 
The ugly: 
Russell Brand: He's so bad, it makes Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him To The Greek look like flukes.
Jennifer Garner: While Garner herself isn't ugly, her acting is. The scene where she tries to seduce Arthur is probably the worst. Easily her worst performance since Elektra.
The pop-culture references: While it's not as bad as the Tranformer scene from Gulliver's Travels, they references are clumsily shoe-horned in and distracting. Also, during the scene where's his dressed-up like Batman, his costume has nipples. We all know my feelings on Bat-nipples.
 
Overall, Arthur is a pointless remake. Other than Brand, Garner, and Worst Remake or Rip-off, I don't see this getting many nods. Grade: C-

I really hope Greta Gerwig doesn't get nominated for this. She was the only decent thing in this movie....
