CULT – 1

 

VERDICT – 4/5

 

 
PROS –
1) A comedic take on Sherlock Holmes universe where Dr. Watson is the real detective and Holmes is merely an actor playing the fictional creation of Dr. John Watson.
2) The comedy is slightly slapstick in nature but still hilarious. Michael Caine’s performance as the bumbling Sherlock Holmes is extremely amusing.
3) The witty dialogues keep the movie entertaining throughout.
4) While the movie is an out-and-out comedy, the case is not. It’s an equally gripping case of stolen printing plates for £5 banknotes.
5) Jeffrey Jones perfectly fits the bill to play Inspector Lestrade.

 

CONS –
N/A

 

QUOTE –
