Peter Travers: 'Arthur' and 'Your Highness' are Dead on Arrival


Peter Travers is throwing two more horrible comedies into the Scum Bucket this week. Travers says that Arthur, a remake of the 1981 Dudley Moore comedy starring Russell Brand, is timid, overly sentimental and dead on arrival. He's even more disappointed by Your Highness, in which a great cast featuring Danny McBride, Natalie Portman, James Franco and Zooey Deschanel is totally wasted on unfunny scatological humor.
