At the Movies With Peter Travers' Holiday Blitz: "Sherlock Holmes," "It's Complicated," "Nine" and More
Eric Helton
First, there's Sherlock Holmes, starring Robert Downey Jr. as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famed detective and Jude Law as his sidekick Watson. As always, it's a pleasure to see Downey Jr. on the big screen. Unfortunately, director Guy Ritchie is at the reins of this film, and he dumbs down the Sherlock wit into a period piece that's more like an action caper a la Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels than The Hound of the Baskervilles.
