Without a Clue–RIP VI

Posted By on September 7, 2011

I accidentally watched a movie that fits the rules of the Readers Imbibing Peril VI, Peril on the Screen challenge. Sort of.  It’s a favorite around our house, but I hardly ever meet anyone else who’s heard of it. My girl was feeling in need of a little cheering up so we watched Without a Clue. It’s a twist on Sherlock Holmes, and I don’t want to give too much away. There is a mystery, but the real joy of this movie is the dialogue and the relationship between Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. (Let me admit, the first time I watched it, I watched it for Paul Freeman, who’s one of my favorite villains ever in Raiders of the Lost Ark.) If you need to laugh, one line of dialogue after another, take a look!

I’m so excited! My first review–but now, I’d better get to some of my own work!

    I do like Michael Caine! but I have to admit that my favorite Holmes will always be Basil Rathbone.. maybe it was the creepyness of the black and white movies, not sure.

    I totally agree with you. And put Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce on a train–ultimate Sherlock Holmes film bliss! Plus, I think I might have been too careful, trying not to spoil with my review. Without a Clue is definitely not Conan Doyle. There is a mystery, but the characters are more “borrowed” from the stories.
