New Sherlock Holmes a Family-Friendly Bromance?
The language has been tamed for this PG-13 outing. But manly bonding between bohemian Holmes and bourgeois Watson is at the core of the story. Trendy types might even describe it as a "bromance," especially when Downey's detective bristles at the very thought of his friend's nuptials coming between them. But the relationship takes its cues from a long line of what used to be known simply as buddy films.
A PG-13 bromance? Also, there's no cocaine, a "nod to the family-friendly rating."
I don't want family friendly, goddamnit. I want blood. I want Sherlock to shoot someone in the face and say, "Elementary." I want full-on doublebacking, coke snorting, and a hardcore murder mystery. I don't want a family friendly Sherlock Holmes. Damnit.
