August 30, 2019
A very flat, lethargic and largely laughter-free spoof, in which Will Ferrell plays the legendary literary detective Sherlock Holmes is simply incapable of getting any jokey party started.

This is pointless, ridiculous, insulting material that shouldn't even be viewed as a hate-watch.

It's lazy, it's unfunny and it's a good thing critics didn't get to review Holmes and Watson before the end of the year: Worst Movie of 2018? Elementary, my dear Watson.

The greatest comedic bits of 'Holmes and Watson' are possibly the anachronisms. [Full Review in Spanish]
February 22, 2019
In Etan Cohen's film, there is nothing new, nor any context, any opportunity for originality or grace. [Full Review in Spanish]

Holmes and Watson is idiotic, but not enough to alienate everyone. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 18, 2019
Very dumb and occasionally very funny.
January 16, 2019
It is indescribably bad.
January 15, 2019
The reteaming of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly in "Holmes & Watson" as that celebrated detective duo Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson ignites few chuckles and absolutely no comedic fireworks.
January 11, 2019
For my money, this is a laugh-out-loud movie ideal for a relaxing Friday night.
January 10, 2019
The smell of flop-sweat permeates the movie like real sweat in a locker room. It's too bad to be offensive, too inert to be annoying.
January 10, 2019
Holmes & Watson is likely to make even the least demanding cinema-goers feel as if they've had their intelligence insulted.
January 10, 2019
These jokes are of course tired junk, aiming for the lowest of the low-hanging fruit and still somehow not always hitting their targets.
January 9, 2019
An astoundingly awful film.
January 7, 2019
Holmes & Watson is head-scratchingly unfunny. Filled to busting with talent and potential that, say in the hands of Aardman animation, might flourish as well as it should, but here it all falls disappointingly flat.
January 6, 2019
Puerile, imbecilic and imbued with the kind of casual 1970s sitcom homophobia that reads all male friendships as somehow suspect, this slack-jawed grossout comedy represents the nadir of Conan Doyle adaptations.
January 4, 2019
Why shell out ticket money for a movie that was deemed too terrible for a home streaming platform that greenlit The Ridiculous Six?
January 4, 2019
Inspector Lestrade (Rob Brydon, who deserves better) is fully aware, and mostly stands around looking as exasperated as the audience.
January 3, 2019
It is two people in a bar, three or four beers in, just telling jokes to each other that are not even funny.
January 3, 2019
But even beyond wasting the talents of Ferrell and Reilly, writer-director Ethan Coen piles on one stupid anachronistic joke after another throughout the movie and then doesn't even bother to take them to their logical climaxes.
