Morgan Fairchild as Irene Adler!!???!?!?!?!?!?!
10 June 2001 | by (Eureka, CA) – See all my reviews

Morgan Fairchild as Irene Adler? Who's bright idea was that? The story line was okay, her performance was awful. The image of Irene Adler was never written to be portrayed as a whining floozy. Ruined what could have been a fine movie. Perfomances by the rest of the cast were tolerable.
