If a comedy falls in the forest and nobody laughs, did it even exist?
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

It's so painfully unfunny we're not sure it can legally be called a comedy.

"Holmes & Watson" is one of those movies that goes beyond unfunny and into a comedy-cubist zone, where jokes are no longer recognizable and laughter is philosophically impossible.

No brain cells are harmed by Holmes & Watson, just given a few hours to rest and regenerate.

Stan and Ollie is a movie about a comedy duo that has seen better days, while Holmes & Watson merely stars one.

The whole thing feels like someone took the unfunny outtakes that might have adorned the end credits and stretched them out into their own film

"Holmes & Watson" is more of a well-meaning misfire than a total train wreck. It's frustrating mainly because all of these folks can do much better. They can be a lot Daffier.

If you choose to watch this movie, you'll be treated to an hour and a half of different versions of the same gag: what if [insert modern thing] somehow existed in Victorian times!?

The only compelling mystery about "Holmes & Watson" is how so many funny people have been squeezed into such an unfunny movie, a movie that isn't nearly smart enough to recognize how stupid it should have been.

Might be the worst feature-length film ever made about the "consulting detective" from Baker Street.

Feels neither definitive nor especially fresh - just an off-brand, garden-variety parody.

Smuggling in booze to dispel the sense of dull routine could only help.

You can feel the flop sweat emanating from the third onscreen pairing of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly.
