'Holmes and Watson' will probably make you smile, and occasionally, it earns that goodwill. It?s being solved by detectives missing a key clue.

The trouble is, Sherlock Holmes exists so large in audiences? minds already that the pair?s uninspired take feels neither definitive nor especially fresh ? just an off-brand, garden-variety parody.

A brilliant supporting cast, which includes Hugh Laurie, Steve Coogan, Ralph Fiennes, Lauren Lapkus, Rebecca Hall, and Kelly MacDonald, is utterly wasted on this lame and forgettable outing. The only real mystery is why they wanted to be apart of this project at all.

A completely charmless, laughs-free experience.

The Hollywood Reporter

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.
