Not particularly convincing French Canadians!
A friend of mine has a great business idea: if you are planning a boring social event, hire a French Canadian! They can work the room, tell jokes and have a great time! This is why it's obvious Universal clearly hired a bunch of fakes for this movie. Holmes and Watson travel to Canada (or, more precisely, the province of Quebec) and stumble upon the trail of dead bodies left by a homicidal maniac wielding a garden implement. Features one character who does nothing but sell plaid fabric to the town's inhabitants (now that, I can believe). Note: Please, Canadian men: for the love of God, stop wearing chequed shirts. Topped off by this Churchill quotation on Canada: "Relations of friendly intimacy with the United States on the one hand and their unswerving fidelity to the British commonwealth and the motherland on the other." Cripes, now I feel dirty and have to go take a bath!
