    I love the movie Arthur. (Never saw Arthur II.)

    The boss found it on Amazon and we watched it tonight. No one makes me laugh as hard as Sir John Gielgud did in this flick.

    Arthur is, line for line, one of the funniest movies of all time, and Dudley Moore's performance is classic. It holds up well, too. I'm amazed at how many people I run across who have never seen it.

    It also stands out because you don't see too many funny drunk movies anymore.

    Terrific film. Brilliant casting with Dudley Moore and Sir John Gielgud. Liza Minnelli was a pretty good idea, too (Hi, 21!).

    Mr. Johnson: I never drink. No one in my family ever drinks.
    Arthur: That's great! You've probably never run out of ice in your whole life.
    Mr. Johnson: I don't drink because drinking affects your decision-making.
    Arthur: You may be right. I can't decide.

    I also liked the way the movie looked. Got a real sense of the place -- rich and not-so-rich New York.

    Wonderful movie.

    "Arthur, a real woman could make you stop drinking."

    "It would have to be a real big woman."

    "It's so small, Rhode Island could beat the crap out of it in a war."

    My father worked at a movie theatre the year this came out, and can probably still quote the entire thing verbatim.

    Hobson: Thrilling to meet you, Gloria.
    Gloria: Hi.
    Hobson: Yes... You obviously have a wonderful economy with words, Gloria. I look forward to your next syllable with great eagerness.

    This is one of those movies I used to watch all the time, but haven't lately because I don't have it on DVD. I should remedy that.

    "They recently had the entire country carpeted."

    "Yes, Arthur, we understand it's small."
