Production Companies (feature film)

They Might be Giants chronicles the adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson in modern day New York City. The fact that Sherlock Holmes (George C.

This is a sweet, goofy and fairly romantic film that asks the questions "Who's reality is right...and does it really matter?"
