Quotes

Sherlock Holmes: I think you should go to Viena yourself, Mycroft.
Mycroft Holmes: Come, Sherlock, you very well know that I am not the man to run here and there, to cross-question witnesses, to lie on my face with a lens to my eye, no! The preservation of the civilized world is at stake, and you, and you alone can save it.

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.
