Movie review: Sherlock Gnomes

Let’s start off by saying this — the trailers I saw made this movie look like it was going to be hilarious. I was bit by the deceiving trailer bug again. Yeah, there were funny parts, but not as many as I was expecting.

I paid attention to the adults and the children in the theater, and there wasn’t the roaring laughter and excitement that I was expecting either. These movies are usually really good about throwing in stuff that just tickle our little ones, and then they also throw in the stuff that us adults get. Sherlock Gnomes only had a few.

The story itself was cute. I loved the way it looked, and really enjoyed the soundtrack. I’m a huge fan of Elton John and his music was really prominent in it. Other than that, I feel like it was an okay movie.

Grade: B-

Christene Johnson (RunPee Sis)

RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.

Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
