Audience Reviews for The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother
I finally sat down to watch The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother for the first time the other day and I loved it. Ok, so it wasn't as good as Blazing saddles, or most Mel Brooks films, or Wilder & Pryor's joint films..but, it's really to see such great comedy talent in one film. It's quite sad that the great Marty Feldman, Dom DeLuise, Leo McKern, Roy Kinnear, John Le Mesurier and the beautiful Madeline Kahn are no longer with us. It's also sad that the great Gene Wilder no longer works either in front of or behind the screen. It's good to have these timeless classics to look back on, it's the sort of film that will get better with each viewing I'd imagine, makes me want to do the bunny hop for sure.More
A classic cast line up including Feldman, Wilder, DeLuise, Kinnear and Le Mesurier unfortunately can't quite save this brilliantly original wacky tale which sounds and looks better than it really is. Its a huge shame to be honest as you really really think this is gonna be an epic in the same league as 'Young Frankenstein' but its just lacking bite, the cast do well for whats on offer but it just isn't too funny plus there are some really cringing song n dance routines here.
Dom DeLuise is probably the best for a good chuckle as usual with his jolly japes and camp capers hehe whilst Feldman and Kinnear are decent too but alas Wilder comes across as kinda blunt with his miserable character. Some nice sequences like the stagecoach fight but also some pretty dire ones like the finale make it touch n go, still its a nice flick and worth a look if you like Wilder.
A very funny spoof of Sherlock Holmes. There are a couple of awkward moments, but overall, it's very funny. Plus, Wilder directs this one.More
