The more times you see this movie, the more you'll like it
There are a select few movies that I enjoy more each time I watch them. "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother" is one of them. I've seen the movie over 20 times, and I laugh out loud every single time.
Every main character in the movie gives a great performance. And, the comedic trio of Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn & Marty Feldman is at its best in this film. Dom DeLouise's performance as the opera singer is a gem as well.
This film marks Gene Wilder's first attempt at movie making without the help of Mel Brooks. Although this film stays close to Brooks' style, Wilder overall uses more subtle humor.
The bottom line is, if you are a fan of Gene Wilder's earlier movies like: Blazing Saddles, Silver Streak, The Producers, Willy Wonka..., Young Frankenstein, etc., then this movie should end up being one of your favorites.
