After closing another successful investigation Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson return to their home at Baker Street. When they are alone we can see the truth about this duo - Doctor Watson is the one that actually solves the mysteries while Sherlock Holmes is and actor, who is just a front for the media. But this time Watson decides that he has enough of this cooperation and throws Reginald Kincaid (because that is his real name) out and plans to start to work on his own. Soon big case comes up and Watson is ready to take care of it on his own... but nobody takes him seriously since, afterall, he is not Sherlock Holmes.

Brilliant comedy that parodies the well known style of Arthur Conan Doyle and his novels about Sherlock Holmes, but with nice twist that Sherlock Holmes is in fact just an actor, clumsy idiot that likes to drink and have some fun. The idea was great, script was fresh, great performance from marvelous cast - a must see!
