6 Insulting Movie Adaptations of Strong Female Characters | Cracked.com

#1. Any Woman Near Sherlock Holmes

BBC

Remember the episode of Sherlock where Sherlock sets aside his wit and solves the case by gunning a man down? Wasn't that kind of out of character? Well, that's because it was originally a woman who did it. In Arthur Conan Doyle's short story "The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton," Sherlock and Watson were unable to defeat the titular blackmailer. In fact, they got whomped so badly, all they could do was hide behind some curtains and pray for a Deus ex Machina.

Luckily, the machine god was listening. The two were saved by a mysterious woman, one of Milverton's victims, who showed up and shot the man. This woman didn't even have a name, yet she was one of the most interesting characters Holmes ever encountered. So when the BBC Sherlock show did an episode ("His Last Vow") based on this story, it's strange that the mysterious female avenger was written out of existence. Instead, Sherlock just murders the villain himself.

BBC
Pictured above right: The most notable female character in Sherlock Holmes.

The writers, Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, found it simply unbelievable that a random woman could be the one to take down this villain where the hero couldn't. In fact, in an interview, they said they were convinced that she never existed and Watson concocted her in his write-up to cover up Sherlock's vigilante slaying. So wait, they left out the woman because they thought they were being tricked by the original story's narrator? That's ... wait, what?

BBC
Sherlock totally killed that guy. And what's this!? Topless aliens are piloting Sir Elton John!?

Another female character from the original Sherlock Holmes stories, Irene Adler, didn't do too hot in the Sherlock show either. In the original story, A Scandal in Bohemia, Holmes was hired to retrieve a picture Irene was using to blackmail a king. But Adler outsmarts Holmes and gets away with the picture. The story ends on the quote:

"And that was how a great scandal threatened to affect the kingdom of Bohemia, and how the best plans of Mr. Sherlock Holmes were beaten by a woman's wit."

Not much ambiguity in that write-up. But in the Sherlock episode based on the story, "A Scandal in Belgravia," she gets captured by terrorists instead.

BBC
"Let's have the woman character lose instead ... oh, and let's also put her in a burka and kill her!"

This time around, Sherlock ultimately outsmarts Irene. He swoops in to rescue her from execution, then gets the information she was trying to keep from him -- the direct opposite outcome of the original story. It gets worse: the thing that ultimately brings Irene down is she couldn't help falling in love with Sherlock.

"You could have chosen any random number and walked out of here today with everything you've worked for, but you just couldn't resist it, could you?" Sherlock says smugly to the defeated woman. "I've always assumed that love is a dangerous disadvantage. Thank you for the final proof."

BBC
"I hope you learned a valuable lesson about getting feelings in your vagina."

Irene went from a smart, independent woman who ultimately defeats the hero, to a damsel-in-distress pawn just waiting for the hero to save her from her own stupid mistakes. She's basically the British dominatrix version of Princess Peach.

John: “This isn’t a waltz, is it?”

Mary: “No.”

Sherlock: “Don’t worry, Mary… I have been tutoring him.”

John: “He did, you know. Baker Street, behind closed curtains. Mrs Hudson came in one time. I don’t know how those rumours started!”

Sherlock Season 4 airs in 2016, after a one-episode Christmas special to “completely” solve the mystery of Moriarty’s return from the dead

BBC One announced that it will be airing a single-episode Christmas special of Sherlock in December 2015, followed by the premiere of Season 4 in early 2016. Filming begins this month in fact. “It’s taken a little while to get the dates sorted as none of the boys are exactly sitting back twiddling their thumbs but there was unanimous goodwill to make this work, so we’re thrilled that 221b is going to be inhabited again,” said Hartwood Films executive producer Sue Vertue in a BBC One media release. …
