If you had any expectations for Russell Brand’s remake of Arthur, please, sir, check them at the door and ask the coat lady to throw them in a pile with all your hopes and dreams and light a match. This is the power of Russell Brand: He can dull even the presence of Helen Mirren and Jennifer Garner in lingerie. How do you ruin Jennifer Garner in lingerie? Worse, for the first time that I can ever recall, it made me immune to Queen and David Bowe’s “Under Pressure.”
Seriously, if you can’t even make your trailer funny (save for the Darth Vader gag), give it up. Just give it up.
Here, allow me to make it up to you. Here’s Jennifer Garner in lingerie the way she’s meant to be seen: On the brink of kicking someone’s ass.
