Robert playing Nicholas Cage in the finance movie, Losing His Shirt.

Sherlock Holmes is about Sherlock and Watson solving crime, at the same time trying to halt the creation of a new world order. It stars Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, and is directed by Guy Ritchie.

Robert Downey Jr. plays the title character and does a magnificent job of doing so. If his British accent was off, my ignorance was not able to detect it. Jude Law (his British accent seemed a bit off) plays a doctor who definitely is not a surgeon because his lack of accuracy with a gun strongly suggests that he possess the steady hands of an unmedicated Michael J. Fox. The original choice for the role of Watson was Colin Farrell.

Sherlock Holmes is Guy Ritchie's best film to date, surpassing even Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels. I predict that, because of this film, more parents will inexplicably be naming their newborns Sherlock... and Shirley if they have the misfortune of giving birth to a girl. I believe this film is worth paying full price to see at the theater and renting again at the video store.
