#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – This is a Sherlock Holmes story with a difference. Here Dr Watson is the ace detective and has been using an actor to play the part Holmes. Holmes is a drunken actor and gets on Watson’s nerves. When Watson tries to go it alone, he doesn’t have much success, so he is forced to let Holmes take all the credit once more.
Plot: Sherlock Holmes is as dashing as ever, but with a little secret: Dr. Watson is the brains behind the operation. When Reginald Kincaid, the actor he has hired to play Holmes becomes insufferable, Watson fires him and tries to go out on his own, but finds that he has done too good a job building Holmes up in the public’s mind.

A true lost gem
The premise is so clever. Sherlock Holmes never really existed. It was Dr. Watson (Ben Kingsley) who had been solving these cases all along, and simply hired bumbling actor Reginald Kincaid (Michael Caine) to play the fake Sherlock Holmes.
To those who are hard-core Holmes fans, this film will be cherished. Sadly, the VHS is out of print in the USA (I bought mine used at a flea market), and DVDs are available only in Europe.
(UPDATE: The film has been released on DVD in the USA, but in Pan & Scan.)
Also, the film received hardly any promotion in the USA. But it is lavishly directed, cleverly written, and magnificently cast.
Everything about this film deserves exclamation points!
Track it down any way you can, and prepare to laugh out loud.
