Arthur is the son of a millionaire, he is waited on hand and foot by his gentleman's gentleman, and has never done a days work in his life. He is also a drunk. He is engaged to be married to the daughter of a well to do family but Arthur is not really in love with her. He meets a waitress and falls in love with her, but his father disapproves and threatens then unless he marries his fiance he will lose his fortune and inheritance of millions of dollars. Well, we have all been there haven't we?

Despite having the worst title song in the history of cinema this is a pretty good if rather flimsy film. Dudley Moore is superb as is Eliza Minelli (what went wrong there?). John Gielgud stole the film with his deadpan acerbic performance as Arthur's Butler.
