With an unexpected day and evening free of child on Monday, we decided to go see Sherlock Holmes. It was definitely worth seeing: a lot of fun and a lot of Guy Ritchie's trademark slow-mo (see Lock, Stock, & Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch).
While playing down Holmes's drug use, Ritchie definitely alludes to it; at one point Jude Law's Watson says to Robert Downey's Holmes, "Do you know that what you're drinking is for eye surgery?" The two make a good pair, and Law gets across Watson's
reluctant compliance in Holmes's escapades. I also liked the inclusion of Irene Adler, the only woman Holmes could truly admire (according to Conan Doyle).
If you go, be prepared for some squirm-inducing bone-breaking violence along with some real laughs.
