Although Roy Kinnear's character is unnamed in the credits (as Moriarity's Assistant) and throughout most of the movie, he is addressed once by Moriarity as "Finney". Wilder chose Kinnear for the role because the two had formed a friendship during the making of Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971), in which Wilder played Willy Wonka and Kinnear played Mr. Salt, Veruca's father.

Your Confidence... being inside of Your Majesty is the greatest single joy I've ever known.

It's alright, Your Majesty! I've got it! I've got it. All's well that ends well!

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.
