OVERRATED

Resurrecting 'Arthur': If anyone is qualified to portray this 1981 comedy's wealthy English playboy running amok in New York City it's Russell Brand, but there's no way of avoiding the inevitable question of "Why?" Dudley Moore's sweetly daffy drunk from the original seems awkwardly dated now, but that's precisely why it doesn't need a remake, especially given the cast included the perfect Sir John Gielgud and a quirkily endearing Liza Minnelli. Stop it, Hollywood.
