A humorous take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic mysteries featuring Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson.
Adventure Comedy Crime - This is another silly buddy comedy starring the familiar pairing of
Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, this time taking a comedic spin on
the venerable characters of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson--and so
there is a mystery element in the story. Fans of the other notable
names in the film such as Rebecca Hall and especially Ralph Fiennes,
will disappointed by their very limited screen time. Young adults,
particularly males, are the target, and language, drug content, and
make the film not for kids.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 21 moviegoers:
TEENS: The lone male felt it was just a "good/average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). The lone female actually loved "Holmes & Watson."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Of the two females, one loved it and one rated it "good/average."
ADULTS: WOW! The adult reviews are all over the place. They vary so much they aren't going to be of any real help except to indicate that your probability of enjoying this movie is only about 50%.
