Arthur 2 On the Rocks

In the belated sequel to Steve Gordon's yuppie fairy tale of 1981, the love of alcoholic multimillionaire Arthur (Dudley Moore) for his working-class wife (Liza Minnelli) is put to the test when the father of his former fiancee assumes corporate control of his family's holdings, forcing the obnoxious playboy into a state of poverty until he agrees to divorce his wife and marry the jilted Susan (Cynthia Sikes). Whatever limited possibilities there might have been in the second-degree Capra-corn of Andy Breckman's script (which traffics in such matters as Arthur and his wife's hopes to adopt a baby and a cameo visit from the ghost of John Gielgud's Hobson) are immediately killed by the sluggish and convictionless direction of old-time hack Bud Yorkin; there's nary a laugh in sight. With Geraldine Fitzgerald.
