Overview
Leave it to legendary funnyman Gene Wilder to write, direct and star in an uproarious Sherlock Holmes mystery film spoof that goes far beyond the scope of elementary comedies.

After spending decades living in the shadow of his more famous and successful sibling, Consulting Detective Sigerson Holmes (Wilder) is called upon to help solve a crucial case that leads him on a hilarious trail of false identities, stolen documents, secret codes...and exposed backsides.

Featuring an outrageous ensemble cast, including Madeline Kahn as the seductive singer, Marty Feldman as the bug-eyed assistant, and Dom DeLuise as the eccentric opera star-turned-blackmailer, this fun-filled caper packs a slew of clues and loads of laughs!
