On "Arthur"

From The Dispatch:
It’s zanier in tone than the original, which makes its sudden turn into seriousness in the home stretch seem disingenuous. It’s a tonal switch that rings false, and while it goes in a direction that the audience wants, it never quite feels like it is a resolution that is earned. But that is almost to be expected in a comedy such as this, and while it is essentially a one-joke comedy, it is buoyed by likable performances by its capable cast, keeping it afloat despite its shortcomings.
