Leave it to legendary funnyman Gene Winder to write, direct and star in an uproarious Sherlock Holmes mystery film spoof that goes far beyond the scope of elementary comedies. After spending decades living in the shadow of his more famous and successful sibling, Consulting Detective Sigerson Holmes (Wilder) is called upon to help solve a crucial case that leads him on a hilarious trail of false identities, stolen documents, secret codes... and exposed backsides.
- The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother review by JD
Humour has changed a lot since 1975, but Wilder/Feldman is a mixture made in silly paradise. Mad, silly but not zany, not goofball and not grossout. A much more wonderful even surreal stupidity. With a nostalgic grin on my bouch I loved every kangaroo dance, every slap on the head to jog the memory and every fight on horse drawn carriage with a 6 foot glove.
