The Baker Street Irregulars did not receive a mention in Ebert's review. The Baker Street Irregulars were used as a metaphor -- it was the concept, not the group, that appeared in the review.

Whatever.

An official of a "literary society" should know the difference...

I found it interesting that Ebert made a casual reference to the Baker Street Irregulars without apparently feeling the need to identify the group further for the general public.

To quote Mycroft: "I hear of Sherlock everywhere!"

I like the fact that Ebert mentions the BSI, but his wording is a little distressing. His phrase: "a network of rich dilettantes who resemble a theological branch of the Baker Street Irregulars" makes it seem like the BSI is made up of rich dilettantes. (Heaven forbid!) Let's hope I'm just mis-reading that.

Either way, thanks for the link!

Possibly Ebert got the idea because in the movie Sir Ian is called a Priory scholar.
