Well, look who's back! And with a witty rejoinder!

From the New York Times article, What Scandal in Bohemia? An Endorsement for ‘Sherlock Holmes’:

"Ms. Plunket denied a report that appeared on the Web site TotalFilm.com, which said that she might stand in the way of a 'Sherlock Holmes' sequel because of the movie’s characterization of the relationship between Holmes (played by Robert Downey Jr.) and Watson (Jude Law), and Mr. Downey’s remarks in an interview with David Letterman that Holmes might be a 'very butch homosexual.'

'It didn’t strike me as being a gay relationship,' Ms. Plunket said of the characters’ portrayal in Mr. Ritchie’s film. She added, “As a good friend was fond of saying, ‘A dirty mind is a perpetual feast.’”



Oh, Andrea. First, RDJ had a "black sense of humor" to imply that Holmes and Watson might be gay. Now, the idea that they might be gay equals a "dirty mind." Ma'am, please insert foot into mouth. Honestly. None of which is to say, of course, that I don't have a dirty mind...

I'm still not clear on exactly how much control she actually has over the state (or how much Doyle's daughter Jean has or even how much public domain has), but at least she isn't going to create problems for the sequel. That's something.
