David Beckham's H&M underwear line gets shown off in a new short film from director Guy Ritchie. In the clip, the footballer's robe is caught in the door of the family Range Rover and he has his clothes torn off in a mad dash after it, only to be left a wet and helpless tourist attraction on the streets of Beverly Hills.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

'Daily Mail' Raises Questions About David Beckham's Package: PHOTO

Becks

Bless British tabloid The Daily Mail for asking the serious questions: "David is that all YOU?" The question is the axis on which a probing expose of soccer star David Beckham's trot around LA for a new H&M underwear video campaign pivots. Guy Ritchie, too, has been implicated, as the director of said campaign. It's riveting stuff.

Check out a couple more images from the sensational tale AFTER THE JUMP.

Sherlock Holmes Copyright Holder Won't Tolerate Gay Subtext

Sherlock

Andrea Plunket, who holds the U.S. copyright to Sherlock Holmes is not happy that Robert Downey Jr. has been joking that the subtext of Holmes and Watson in Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes is gay.

Said Plunket: “I hope this is just an example of Mr. Downey's black sense of humour. It would be drastic, but I would withdraw permission for more films to be made if they feel that is a theme they wish to bring out in the future. I am not hostile to homosexuals, but I am to anyone who is not true to the spirit of the books.”


Michael Medved: 'There's Not a Seething, Bubbling Hunger to See Straight Stars Impersonating Homosexuals'

Sherlock4

The NY Post today resurrected a February rumor from tabloid News of the World that Guy Ritchie has put a gay spin (that they warn could possibly backfire) on the relationship between Robert Downey Jr. (Sherlock) and Jude Law (Watson) in his update of Sherlock Holmes.

Medved While everything so far shows a stronger physicality in Downey's portrayal as well as some Odd Couple style co-habitation dialogue ("When do I complain about you practicing the violin at 3 in the morning. Or your mess? Or your general lack of hygiene, or the fact that you steal my clothes?")

So there's nothing really new here except a weigh-in from former Post movie critic Michael Medved (whose discomfort with gays is certainly nothing new) saying audiences just wouldn't want to see that:

"There's not a seething, bubbling hunger to see straight stars impersonating homosexuals. I think they're just trying to generate controversy . . . They know that making Holmes and Watson homosexual will take away two-thirds of their box office. Who is going to want to see Downey Jr. and Law make out? I don't think it would be appealing to women. Straight men don't want to see it."
