A nice, fun, pleasant watch, with stand-out performances from Moore and Gielgud. And, honestly, I really like that song.

A hedonistic billionaire (Dudley Moore) is being pressured into an arranged marriage, but when he meets a woman he genuinely loves (Liza Minnelli), he finds himself very torn indeed. It's hard to overlook how shoddily structured the script is or its technical shortcomings, but it's equally hard not to be charmed by Moore (or Minnelli), or to not be amused by the dry snark of his devoted butler (John Gielgud, who won an Oscar). And there are some really funny bits. It's just all rather uneven.

is it mean that i giggle every time i see a movie where liza minnelli is a love interest, half because she's hideous, half because the's a crappy actress. it's still a good movie, if a bit cliche, and moore carries the rest of the cast.

Arthur & Linda fall in love too quickly (other than both being resolutely unserious jokesters it's hard to see what the profound attraction is) & Hobson's fate is telegraphed too early, but the strength of this lies in how funny you find it (especially given the number of jokes) & I found it very funny. Drunken Arthur's like a modern day Groucho spouting off lots of great one-liners & his manic energy is nicely complemented by Hobson's desert-dry & deadpan delivery.

The director, Steve Gordon, who is also the screenwriter, managed to lead the film in an exemplary manner, making in a very light, fun and romantic.

Wonderful, warm and winning comedy, with an unbeatable trio of stars (a mismatched trio to be sure, but working wonderfully well together). Moore makes Arthur not only endearing, but lovable, and Gielgud is hilarious as his very proper man servant ("A little tart like that could save you a fortune in prostitutes"). Wonderful support work by Elliott as Arthur's sadistic in-law to be, and Martin as Liza's emotional father. Highly satisfying, wholly enjoyable and highly recommended.

This movie is hilarious and I love it. It was made back in the good ole days when drunks were silly and fun. Then Leaving Las Vegas had to go and ruin it by making them depressing, out of control, and suicidal.

What an insufferable piece of shit. I've never rooted harder for the bad guy before. And that laugh - every fucking other fucking word was a fucking giggle. As if.

This is a sweeet movie. Dudley Moore is very good, and unfortunately got typecast in this role. Liza Minnelli proved she was a good actress. and Sir John Gielgud? Priceless. Everyone shuld see this movie at least once. Sadly it doesn't hold up as well as it should (which cost it 10 points).

Greasy decadent 80's aesthetic, but it's half-intelligent sometimes. I hate Dudley Moore, but Liza Minnelli is cute and some scenes were fun.

Funny if you don't think about how pathetic Dudley Moore's character is, but pretty sad if you do. Gielgud saves the film.

Liza is unexpectedly charming, Dudley becomes likable as the flick goes on and that infernal laughing calms down a bit, but Sir John Gielgud is the reason to see this (although Jill Eikenberry trying desperately to look beatific is fairly funny). Those NYC locations--the ones that aren't The Plaza or mansions--that's how NYC looked when I first moved here all those years ago. God, I miss the REAL New York.

Silly romantic comedy with Dudley Moore. He's enjoyable enough to make the movie watchable, but there isn't quite enough there.

Dudley Moore makes such a likable drunk that you can't help but feel sorry for. John Gielgud is great as his faithful, yet wonderfully derisive butler. The story shines as an adult child tries to grow up.

Yeah...the song the movie, Dudley Moore and drinking and driving. Forgive the happy ending (it was 81 you know) and you have a movie that brings me back to my childhood and is very close to my heart. RIP Mr. Moore.

About as tolerable a romantic comedy that I am likely to find. Moore is charming but his butler steals every scene.

John Geilgud and Dudley Moore are hilarious in this quiet comedy. "I'm going to take a bath." "I will alert the media."

I have a soft spot for Dudley Moore, especially in Bedazzled. This however is not one of his better moments. The sequel is best left alone

A more endearing drunk, you will never meet. The stars really alligned for Dudley in this film but the entire cast is phenomenal. . It's pure delight.

Dudley Moore is great being what we think Dudley Moore should be or happened to be. Otherwise, the movie has some odd pacing and mixing funny and romance in somewhat unequal parts.

Light and fluffy romantic comedy very much of its time in the early 80's. Now it seems rather dated but it is still worth watching and is charming and sweet rather than rib-busting and contraversial. John Gielgud's plummy tones can make any moderately funny line even better, but here he is the star for me.

Admittedly, this has some pretty clever dialog, but overall it seems to think it was a lot funnier than it actually is. Moore is pretty annoying, especially in the first ten minutes. Not horrible, but not something I'll want to see again.
