Film Critic Quote of the Week

Pajiba, taking apart “Arthur”:

Arthur does something even more audacious. It goes for broke. This spirited little remake of an 80s Dudley Moore film fearlessly endeavors to be the first comedy of 2011 without a shred of comedic value. It is completely humorless! Theres not a funny moment in the entire film. Arthur has the gritty audacity to entirely subvert the comedy genre by removing precisely what it is that makes a comedy a comedy, namely moments, scenes, lines, situations, or facial expressions that might elicit laughter. How daring! How bold! How adventurous!
