    I hope Bridget and Mary Jo riff all of the Rathbone Sherlock Holmes movies. The combination is perfect.

    I laughed at every riff in the trailer, and since I love Bridget and Mary Jo together, and have enjoyed the heck out of their first Sherlock Holmes outing, I bought this ASAP.

    Faster than the Evil Doer whips out his Webley service revolver Mary Jo and Bridget fire off their riffs. Queen Victoria would be amused.

    And, it’s a public-domain wartime Holmes without a femme-fatale like in “The Woman in Green”

    Not so, sir. It was made and released in 1946, and the lead villain is Hilda Courtney (Patricia Morison), who is very much a femme-fatale.

    Well, this film can’t be any worse than the current “Holmes & Watson” movie. ;-)

    By the way, Eric J. wouldn’t know a femme fatale if one clonked him on the head.

    I really hope they do more of the the Sherlock Holmes films, not just the ones with a female villain. I really don’t understand why they’ve restricted themselves to movies (and shorts) revolving around women. It’s literally living up the stereotype they are presumably trying to subvert or something…

    Yes, and it’s so irritating when male riffers do movies that “revolve” around men, isn’t it? Oh, wait, they get a pass.

    SH&TWIG’s main villain was, as usual in the SH books and movies, the male Professor Moriarty. B&MJ have riffed movies and shorts that do not “revolve” around women. As far as I can remember, most of their targets have both male and female characters. Who’s counting? Besides insecure little men, I mean.

    I gave your post a thumbs-up, though, for the sentiment of hoping B&MJ riff more Sherlock Holmes films, although my wallet will not thank me. I bought this newest one and laughed at every single riff in the opening titles, then turned it off so I can watch it in its entirety with my husband later this weekend. We watched “Trucker’s Woman” (OMG, a film with the word “woman” in the title, you might not want to risk your delicate sensibilities… or is that OK when Kevin, Mike, & Bill do it?) the other night and were almost in tears from laughing so hard.

    How are “Rescue Me,” “Charlie’s Christmas Secret,” “Beyond Christmas,” “Junior Prom,” and “Freddie Steps Out” considered “women’s movies”?

    Plus, Bridget and Mary Jo have riffed several shorts that have nothing to do with women’s issues.

    Check out, for example, “Harry the Dirty Dog.”

    It’s a hoot!

    I got a boxed set of all the Rathbone/Bruce Holmes movies a few years ago. Very entertaining I thought, and my favorite visualization of the concept. The setting (“modern times” back then) works better than a “period” approach, although it looks period now. In the originals, Holmes & Watson were pretty much the same age, but Bruce’s likable old duffer characterization works nicely.

    It’s a series of movies that are fun to watch, and I don’t mean in an ironic way. I’m not sure they lend themselves all that well to riffing.

    I’ve been a fan of the series ever since my Dad introduced me to them when I was a kid. I enjoy watching them, and have seen them loads of times. Still, the riffing potential is there, and Bridget & Mary Jo do a fine job with it.

    This riff is hilarious. Probably my favorite B&MJ riff yet.

    What the hell is up with Watson being so stupid?

    That was his shtick during this series. However, watch “The House of Fear” for a moment where he actually figures something out before Holmes does.

    I somehow doubt that Eric J is a stranger to being clonked on the head by women…
