The perpetually intoxicated millionaire must find work after losing his fortune to his ex-fiancée’s vengeful father.
This sequel is no match for the effervescent 1981 romantic comedy about the tipsy millionaire playboy. This time, Arthur (Dudley Moore) has lost his fabulous inheritance and must now seek work. But this set-up only leads to boring situations that sag under the strain of crude jokes.
John Gielgud, who was so crucial in the original as the wise and witty butler, makes only a brief appearance here. Liza Minnelli also stars.
