Sigh ... I so wanted to love this movie. But it was just "meh" - there were some clever moments and cute moments in the film, and I liked Robert Downey Jr. as Holmes, but Guy Ritchie was so intent on making this the "not your grandfather's Sherlock Holmes" movie that he lost the thread a bit.

I really wish it had been directed by someone else ... and that they had cast someone other than Rachel McAdams as the female lead. She cannot keep up with RDJr. and Jude Law!

Overall, it was just OK for me ...

Surely the point about Sherlock Holmes is that he is 'grandfather's Sherlock Homes'?
