Arthur 2: On the Rocks ★½ 1988 (PG)

When Arthur finally marries his sweetheart, it may not be “happily ever after” because the father of the girl he didn't marry is out for revenge. When Arthur discovers that he is suddenly penniless, a bit of laughter is the cure for the blues and also serves well when the liquor runs out. A disappointing sequel with few laughs. 113m/C VHS, DVD .
