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

This was the worse Will Ferrell movie to date. They should have shown an act of Christmas kindness and donated the budget to some film students for better results.

so as others have said expectations were super high because of the 2 leading men but I literally just took the most expensive nap in my life. Pretty boring, if I would have gotten my bogo free tix as advertised I may not have been as upset.

This movie is really a DVD rental at best but seeing it for free was the reason we saw it in the theaters. Very stupid funny... it's what we expected and that's what we got so if that's your thing then you will laugh, if it's not then do not go see this movie.

This was like watching your beat friend be beat over the head repeatedly and you can’t do anything about it. Would have walked out if it wasn’t for my love of Holmes mystery and needed to see the solution. Otherwise, dumpster fire.

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.
