Is the new Sherlock Holmes movie really a bromance? Well, Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr would kind of like you to think so. It is the love that dare not speak its name:
Rumor has it that Robbie and Jude really were trying to pump up possible homoerotic themes in the movie. What – you mean a movie about two guys solving crimes together with their shirts off wasn’t achieving that goal satisfactorily enough?
Of course, studio heads weren’t too keen on this whole thing, wanting Sherley Holmes to be PURELY for red-blooded Americans, not those pansy-ass HomerSexuals! Them with their innate sense of fashion, deep pocketbooks, and flawless musical taste! We don’t want their ilk!
Aw, who cares, right? I think anybody, gay, straight, trans, penguins, people who only want to have sex with Converse hi-tops, etc., they will all enjoy this film, regardless of its sexual orientation. And if they don’t, well, they could always just watch this:
