I thoroughly enjoyed the unique angle this movie took to the entire Sherlock Holmes canon. Watching two critically-acclaimed actors immerse themselves into a comedic mystery and deliver with great timing and brilliant writing should put this movie on many people's "to watch" lists. From the opening sequence up to the credits, this movie will greatly enteratin you. Not only do Caine and Kinglsey execute well, but the supporting cast was spot on perfect. Jeffrey Jones as Lastrade was a solid casting pick, and the kids for the Baker Street Irregulars added to the comedic homage to the Holmes universe. I dub this movie Outstanding ... case closed! (making sure Watson does not come out from the woodworks to hit me ... watch the movie and you'll get the reference).

This is a must for anyone who feels the good Doctor deserves more credit then he gets. Combining the long-suffering nature of the original Dr. Watson, the method of Holmes, and Sir Doyle's own annoyance with the legendary consulting detective, and you have the perfect lead for this intelligent spoof of the so-called 'Sacred Text'. Not for the humorless Holmes fan, this movie pokes fun at the British public's infatuation with the detective. Such as it was, that any declaration, no matter how minute (or inaccurate!) he uttered was accepted as obvious sign of his genius. All the while the man who walked beside him could not gain the least modicum of respect, despite his own sharply accurate deductions. Those who worshiped the original Holmes as in infallible deity will take offense at this movie, but those who enjoyed the mystery, the distinctive Victorian style, and the genuine (if sometimes strained) friendship, shall find all these things intact in this mix of subtle and slap-stick comedy.

This movie is without a doubt one of the funniest movie's ever made. It's a luagh a minute for the entire movie. You wouldn't think these two actors would be the comedic type but I think that's why it's so funny. Michael Caine's style is just phenominal which makes it so funny. If you want comedy this is the movie to get.
