I have to tell you a secret: I really like Russell Brand. I think he’s a total scumbag, but I usually love his movies. This was no different. I could have done without the whole fiance bit–those parts were boring for me. I much preferred seeing the relationship between Arthur and his nanny and his desired love interest.
This movie did a good job of combining funny, completely ridiculous parts with touching, real moments. It’s that aspect that I loved about the movie. As with many comedies, I never feel the need to watch them again, and this one is no different. One viewing is fine for me!
If you’re a fan of silly but touching movies, or you love Russell Brand, I’d suggest picking this one up. It’s a good movie to watch you if just need some mindless relaxation.
