Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

" of the most underwhelming sequels in cinematic history."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Doesn't have as many big laughs as the classic 1981 original, but the characters are still likable enough for this to merit a passing grade."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"This film never happened. Don't ask me about it again."
‑ Widgett Walls,
"It would have been better for Warners to have left well enough alone."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Y'know, I gotta side with the first Arthur movie, but this wasn't painful in any particular way."
‑ Gregory Weinkauf, ▄berCinÚ
"Another unnecessary sequel."
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
"Unnecessary sequel to now politically incorrect comedy of alcoholism. Great cast, however."
‑ Steve Crum,
"Bad, bad sequel to an over-hyped original."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"A candidate for all time worst sequel."
‑ Bob Grimm, Las Vegas Mercury
