Truly one of the crummiest movies ever made.
Morrissey is a notoriously unpredictable director, but in this case it's the shoddy screenplay, co-written by Morrissey, Cook and Moore, that is to blame.
It's basically 'Carry On Sherlock', and it does the memory of all concerned no favours.
This tasteless spoof of the famous Sherlock Holmes tale stars Peter Cook and Dudley Moore as Holmes and Watson in a seemingly endless string of unfunny jokes told at the expense of Doyle's characters.
The irritating paradox is of course that there is always money available for trash such as The Hound of the Baskervilles. The problem with this is not that it's frivolous but that it's so desperately unfunny.
A bizarre teaming of Warhol Factory director Paul Morrissey with a cast of top-rate British comedians, this founders badly.
Spoof version of the classic Sherlock Holmes story with a strong cast of well knowns. Completely devoid of laughs - and if a spoof with a theoretically good cast has no laughs then it is just tiresomely self indulgent - tiresome indeed.
There are no approved quotes yet for this movie.
