Holmes and Watson is described as “a humorous take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic mysteries featuring Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson”, and I have to ask that if that is the case, when why does it star Will Ferrell?
It also stars John C Reilly, and I’m NOT looking forward to this as much as I *am* looking forward to his January 2019 movie, Stan and Ollie.
Ralph Fiennes brings up the rear as Moriarty, with Pam Ferris as Queen Victoria.
Director Etan Cohen brought us 2015’s unforgettable…, sorry, forgettable, Get Hard, which I haven’t actually seen, but I wasn’t exactly clamouring to do so when I found out the film was one long joke about male rape. Oh, but can he make it up to us with the 2007 short film, My Wife Is Retarded? Unlikely.
Holmes and Watson is released in the UK on December 26th. In the US, it’s out on Christmas Day, but in the UK, all cinemas are closed, then.
There’s also time for them to completely forget about releasing this dirge…
Also stars: Lauren Lapkus, Rebecca Hall, Kelly Macdonald, Hugh Laurie, Steve Coogan, Noah Jupe, Bella Ramsey, Rob Brydon, Bronson Webb, Kieran O’Brien, Michael Culkin
