IN SPITE of ITS GLORIFICATION of PUBLIC DRUNKENNESS, DRUNK DRIVING and OTHER LESS-THAN-AMUSING HABITS of ITS BESOTTEN LEAD CHARACTER, the ORIGINAL 1981 http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/1001240-arthur/ - WAS BERRY AMUSING, AS WELL AS BEING NOMINATED for 4 OSCARS (INCLUDING http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001545/awards - ) and WINNING TWO of THEM (INCLUDING http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000024/awards - ). 

ON PAPER AT LEAST, THE 2011 REMAKE of http://www.razzies.com/forum/forum-discussion-addl-info-on-arthur-2011_forum509.html - , REPLACING DUDLEY MOORE with the EQUALLY IMPISH http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1258970/ - , and REPLACING GIELGUD with JUST-AS-CLASSY  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000545/awards - , SEEMED to HAVE PROMISE -- WOW, a REMAKE THAT MIGHT EQUAL (OR, GOD FORBID!) ACTUALLY SURPASS the OLDER FILM on WHICH IT'S BASED... 

BUT THEN, the EARLY REVIEWS CAME IN and RIGHTLY DECLARED THIS ONE WAS ALMOST as LAME as http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/arthur_2_on_the_rocks/ - , the AWFUL 1988 SEQUEL to the ORIGINAL ARTHUR, WHICH "WON" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0094678/awards - - WORST ACTRESS

SADLY, THIS FILM's FAILURE SUGGESTS THAT, EVEN WHEN THEY GET the CASTING RIGHT, HOLLYWOOD STILL CAN'T DO a REMAKE WITHOUT BLOWING IT NOWADAYS. AND, SINCE ABOUT 87% of EVERYTHING HOLLYWOOD IS MAKING THESE DAYS IS a REMAKE, RIP-OFF or "RE-IMAGINING" of SOMETHING THEY'VE ALREADY DONE, THAT's BAD NEWS FOR EVERYONE...EXCEPT for http://razzies.com/join.asp - http://razzies.com/join.asp - ® http://razzies.com/join.asp - of COURSE!  

WANNA EXPRESS YER THOUGHTS on ARTHUR??  HERE's the http://www.razzies.com/forum/forum-discussiOn-of-arthur-2011_topic4944.html - to DO JUST THAT...
