The Seven-Per-Cent Solution

"OK"

The Seven-Per-Cent Solution Review


It's a silly gag -- Sherlock Holmes is addicted to cocaine and Watson tricks him into a visit with Sigmund Freud. Mysteries real and imagined ensue, with Siggy analyzing our messed-up hero while he investigates a rather tame kidnapping involving a snoozy Vanessa Redgrave. Only Alan Arkin and Robert Duvall -- both bizarrely cast as Freud and Watson, respectively -- make much of an impression. Still, it's quirky enough to have found a cult audience.
