Really expected it to be hilarious with these two guys but, nope. Probably would have turned it off if I watched at home.

Considering Ferrell and Reilly’s immense talents, Holmes Watson is an even more unsettlingly unfunny experience.

Coroners of comic failure will find much to uncover in the corpse of Holmes Watson, a thoroughly tedious and never-amusing spoof of Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary detective.

Making their previous vehicles Step Brothers and Talladega Nights seem the height of comic sophistication by comparison, Holmes Watson features the duo parodying Arthur Conan Doyle's famous characters to devastatingly unfunny effect.
