Very dumb and occasionally very funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

For my money, this is a laugh-out-loud movie ideal for a relaxing Friday night.

Smart about how it's stupid, the comedy suggests an embrace of remorseless logic will only rot your soul and friendships. Yeah, it's a movie in which John C. Reilly lactates, but it also says more than you'd expect about the milk of human kindness.

It's not as funny as their previous outings but the flick has enough slapstick, vomiting, poo, comic violence and general flailing about to keep fans mildly entertained.

Though it doesn't all quite hold together, there are enough inspired moments - and enough strangeness lying just below the film's surface - that it doesn't completely fall apart, either.

Holmes and Watson is not for everybody, but if you want to see Ferrell off the leash this is the best opportunity in a long time.

No brain cells are harmed by Holmes & Watson, just given a few hours to rest and regenerate.

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]

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.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Holmes & Watson is likely to make even the least demanding cinema-goers feel as if they've had their intelligence insulted.
January 9, 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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

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.

It is two people in a bar, three or four beers in, just telling jokes to each other that are not even funny.
