Without A Clue (1988)

This fun Sherlock Holmes spoof stars Michael Caine as the eponymous opium-addicted detective and Ben Kingsley as the long-suffering Dr Watson... with a twist in that Holmes is merely a creation of Dr Watson's, who is the brains of the operation, while Holmes is merely an actor playing the part and repeating the lines fed to him by Watson. When an evil plot emerges and Watson's life is endangered, however, Holmes must actually start to work out how to find and interpret the clues for himself... Not spectacular, but definitely enjoyable.

Also stars Lysette Anthony and Paul Freeman.
