Ooof. Listen, we like Russell Brand, and he can be quick with a quip and wit, but we just sat here watching the trailer for "Arthur" -- yes, a remake of the Dudley Moore comedy "classic" -- and we kept waiting for something funny to happen. It never did.

Well, yet another big name is now being thrown into the mix.
