* TookALevelInJerkass: Susan in the sequel. In the first film, she was a WellIntentionedExtremist and really didn't have a hostile bone in her body. In the sequel, it plays up the WomanScorned, even having her mock Linda for being barren when she's "as fertile as the Napa Valley".

This 1981 film was the biggest comedy hit of its year ''and'' the biggest solo success of Dudley Moore's career. It was followed by an unsuccessful sequel (''Arthur 2: On the Rocks'') in 1988. It has nothing to do with [[WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}} cartoon aardvarks]], but ''is'' the nearest thing we're ever likely to get to a Creator/PGWodehouse adaptation in the top-ten grossers of the year department.

* NotBotheringWithTheAccent: The English actor Dudley Moore plays Arthur, a New Yorker. A little bit of FridgeBrilliance comes from the fact Arthur's role model and father figure is his QuintessentialBritishGentleman [[TheJeeves Jeeves]].
