Arthur 2: On the Rocks Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

In this sequel to the 1981 hit comedy , the story picks up where it left off with the bibulous millionaire hero (Dudley Moore) marrying poverty-stricken Linda Marolla (Liza Minnelli) instead of going through with a prearranged wealthy marriage. The vengeful father (Stephen Elliott) of the justifiably jilted bride begins pulling a few crooked strings, and before long, Arthur is broke. Worse still, Linda is pregnant. Will Arthur crawl back into a bottle, or will he save the day? John Gielgud makes a cameo appearance as the ghost of the family-retainer character he played in the first , while Dudley Moore's real-life wife Brogan Lane shows up in a minor role. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
