Review: Tom and Jerry find themselves assisting legendary detective Sherlock Holmes who sets out to solve a seemingly ordinary case of blackmail. But will the feuding duo prove a help or a hindrance?

Tom and Jerry have been engaged in a violent dispute for decades now, and this latest feature sees them join Sherlock Holmes in what amounts to a rather generic adventure despite the high quality cast. Those who grew up with the quarrelsome cat and mouse may feel a sense of déjà vu, apart from the period costume the pratfalls and violent exchanges feel like recycled elements from the past. Although they take centre stage for the movie's short running time the duo seem out of place in Victorian London, despite the addition of Droopy and other supporting characters.

Maybe this was an attempt to cash in on the success of Guy Ritchie's revamp of Conan Doyle's creation but Tom and Jerry Meet Sherlock Holmes is a rudimentary movie, both in terms of animation and the broad slapstick antics. It may appeal to very young audiences and older viewers will doubtless pick up on the handful of Sherlockian references, but those seeking anthropomorphic animated animal crime escapades are advised to seek out the superior Basil, The Great Mouse Detective.
