Studio execs want Robert Downey Jr. to quit with the “Sherlock Holmes is about gay love. Also, Watson was the bottom” jokes. “The studio wants to position this as an action-packed adventure, not Brokeback Mountain 2.” But if it were going for Brokeback, what would the porn parody be? Sherlock Bones? Sheman Moans? Someone figure out a decent pun.
We don’t need to speculate. The porn biz has already taken several shots at a Sherlock Holmes porn parody.
In 1975, Harry Reems starred in Sherlick Holmes. Unfortunately this film is not available on DVD or online.
The same year, David Chandler and Frank Massey starred in gay porn parody The American Adventures Of Surelick Holmes. Annie Sprinkle appears in a non-sex role as Holmes’s landlady.
And in 1995, Sean Michaels directed and starred in Sherlock Homie. Julian St. Jox plays his faithful companion and chronicler, Dr. Wassup.
The new Guy Ritchie/Robert Downey Jr/Jude Law version will probably spawn another porn parody or two in 2010.
