Robbed of his birthright, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy - whether he likes it or not.
Beginning with the ridiculously stupid opening scene, this movie drags on to become nothing more than two torturous hours of lame, simple-minded, disconnected gags ('pull my finger' ha, ha, ha) strung together to form an even lamer simpler-minded plot, if it can be called that.
This kind of low-brow crap is all the likes of Rob Lowe can qualify for, but it was sad to see Salma Hayek and the venerable and iconic Raquel Welch stoop to this low a level. Didn't they read the script before they signed?
The kid was cute, and there actually was ONE funny gag (that did not involve any of the main players nor the 'plot' - which probably explains why it was funny) about mid-way. But neither of these made enduring the nonstop inane-ness of everything else worth it.
The other reviews, which I made the huge mistake of relying on, are nothing more than a shameless shill-fest.
