The film's title and story set-up are an in-joke referring to Sherlock Holmes' older brother, Mycroft Holmes, who is introduced in Arthur Conan Doyle's story 'The Adventure of the Greek Interpreter' and described as Sherlock's intellectual superior. In Doyle's short story 'The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans' Sherlock describes the British government's reliance on Mycroft's prodigious intellectual powers as follows: "You are right in thinking that he is under the British government. You would also be right in a sense if you said that occasionally he is the British government . . . Mycroft draws four hundred and fifty pounds a year, remains a subordinate, has no ambitions of any kind, will receive neither honour nor title, but remains the most indispensable man in the country."

This has Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn and Marty Feldman at their peak as a comedy team. The interaction between the main characters will make you laugh and cry.
The Sherlock Holmes fans among you will appreciate the irony and the relationship Wilder brings to life as Sherlocks brother and the way the movie ties the classic Baker St mystery into an extremely off beat and likable sexy comedy. I would recommend this movie to anyone with a sense of humour.
