Holmes & Watson Review

Logan Hill

On Christmas day, I went to see the new Sherlock Holmes parody, “Holmes & Watson”, starring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, and it was one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen.

Despite claiming to be a comedy, there was hardly anything in the movie that was even vaguely humorous. Much of the comedy was cringeworthy and poorly done, and the few scenes that actually make you chuckle are too few and far between for this to live up to the title of a comedy. It’s disappointing how unfunny it is, since the two main actors are famous for being a comedic duo. Both Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly have done some amazing work in the past, and unfortunately they didn’t bring that same level of humor to this film. However, an even worse aspect to this film is that it’s just plain old boring. There is nothing unique or interesting about this film, and it ultimately comes across as a movie that not even the filmmakers cared much about.

This movie is a waste of both time and money. Hopefully Sherlock can use his powers of deduction to figure out why this movie was such a flop and prevent it from happening again.
