I saw the Sherlock Holmes movie with my mom last night. I really, really enjoyed it. It's a playful action movie with eccentric, witty heroes (who are definitely reminiscent of House and Wilson). It's House meets Indiana Jones! And now I want to read fanfic for it.

I think my mom enjoyed it a little less though. Or, she enjoyed it, but it wasn't what she was expecting or wanting, I guess. Not having read the books, myself, I can't really judge how faithful it is, but according to my mom, who read them as a kid, Arthur Conan Doyle would be rolling in his grave. "Sherlock Holmes on steroids" was how she described it. But... I'll take that. Because it was good -- it was fun. There was something sort of "Pirates of the Caribbean" -esque about the whole thing.

Watch this little clip. In addition to House and Wilson, this moment also reminds me of Jack and Algy in The Importance of Being Earnest (the scene with tea cake, mostly).
