The people who cut this Arthur trailer apparently have something against star Greta Gerwig, who has the role Liza Minelli played in the 1981 original. Gerwig has about four seconds of trailer time, but I’d much rather hang with her than the more front-and-center Jennifer Garner, who has the Jill Eikenberry role. So what is this? Already I’ve got my hate socks on.
I’m watching it and I’m going “why?…what for?…who gives a toss?” Russell Brand and Helen Mirren, Russell Brand and Helen Mirren, Russell Brand and Helen Mirren, Russell Brand and Helen Mirren…I really don’t like this! Thin sitcom, no soul, a fantasy about money, shallow gags. (Or so the trailer suggests.) Arthur (no website?) opens on 4.8.
