Jimmy Fallon (voice)
Yet, in light of all its problems, ARTHUR still makes for some mildly enjoyable entertainment. It's fast paced enough to keep both kids and adults on their toes (with plenty of action and humorous gags abound), and Freddie Highmore has strong enough screen presence that it becomes easy to ignore the unoriginality of the plot. Things don't exactly mesh well when he becomes a CGI character, but I got used to it.
The celebrity voice acting, on the other hand, was impossible for me to get used to. Almost nobody's voice matches their CGI counterpart, and because of the movie being originally recorded in French, the dubbing sometimes looks off. The only person who fits perfectly is David Bowie (as Malthazard, the villainous tyrant). Others like Jimmy Fallon and Madonna (really now? Madonna? what the hell were they thinking with that one?) feel completely out of place. On the bright side though, Madonna's character is probably the hottest CGI troll-thing ever put on screen. Helping to create a nice transition from the live action scenes, the rest of the CGI looks equally as great... Just not when it's moving. Then it becomes clunky and awkward, much like the film itself.
The Voices of Arthur and the Invisibles (7:08): Some of the not-as-well-known participants from the voice cast discuss working on the film.
In the Recording Studio with Jewel (2:17): Jewel talks about and records a song for the film. I take a two-minute nap.
