Horrible. One of the worst movies that I have ever paid to see. I actually fell asleep twice while trying to enjoy at least a few minutes of this bomb of a movie.
Terrible.....saw this at a DOLLAR theatre........I want my money back....not funny and not interesting. Ferrell absolutely "phoned it in".... hope he enjoyed his 10 million paycheck !
The movie was great. Will Farrell made the movie to be about Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. So what more does the audience would want with this movie. The movie was very funny. I would like to see the movie again.
I wish I could give zero stars, what a total waste of time & money! Such a garbage movie! Can’t believe ppl still make these movies.
Only giving one star because I cannot give zero. This movie was not funny. It was gross and disturbing. It seems they tried so hard to try to make it funny that it ended up disgusting. Disappointed because these two crack me up in Step Brothers and Talladega Nights. Worst movie we have seen in a long time. Wish we could get the money and time we spent on this movie back.
Awful. Just not funny!
This reminds me of the stains on the seats of the old movie houses. Sticky floor, and strange people hiding in the corners. RT posts this one at 6%, down for it's high of 9%. Stinker doesn't quite describe it.
Great hilarious movie! Fish pie..yeah!
It was an awful movie. The writers & producers don't know how to do movies.
Zero the worst movie I have ever seem. You should be paid to watch this.
Will Ferrell has begun to believe his own press clippings !!
See all the other reviews...enough said !!
Look for this on cable, very, very , very soon ...
Terrible, if you saw this movie and laughed all the way through it.......see a counselor.. Both these actors can act/and be funny BUT not here !
This was the worst movie I've ever saw in my whole life I'm 51 years old and I've never seen a worse movie if I can this a - 1 * or a 0 * that's what it would get it's the worst movie ever it was so bad that I ended up talking to a manager to get my money back the Holiday Cinemas and Wallingford manager was so nice that he gave us tickets to come back on another Tuesday he didn't have to do it but I think God he did thank you Wallingford Cinemas
Funny, movie cant believe the ratings, I laughed out loud most of the movie, How could you not laugh at the silly antics and so sorry people have lost their enjoyment of laughter at a silly funny movie.
Crass and humorless - no wit at all and horrible accents.
First time my wife and I ever walked out o movie after 30 minutes. It just did not get better!
Unless you like goofy and corny comedy, this was a waste of time and money. The only funny parts were in the traile.
Extremely disgusting experience. Worst movie ever!
Awful movie! Total waste of time.
You could smell the stink coming off the screen as soon as the credits began! PeeYew!
Will Farrell hasn’t made a good movie since Talledega. Don’t bother going to this one either. Stupidity is not comedy.
This is very possibly the worst movie ever produced. It's a trifecta of zero story line, completely random vulgarity, and poorly written jokes. Throw in a really stupid, long, boring musical number that is painful to watch because you KNOW that it's supposed to be funny, and there you have it. If you liked Stepbrothers, avoid this one---you'll be disappointed.
I work as a teacher, and have several students who work part time at the local theater. I was asking them for movie suggestions, and when I asked about that new Holmes and Watson movie, they told me everyone was walking out and asking for refunds. My daughter went anyways, and lasted 20 minutes.
RT has this at 9%, I think that is generous, that would equate to a half star on this site. Can't stand either of these actors, so my choice was easy. Thanks for everyone's opinion. It saved me from doing something stupid like seeing this movie.
No stars. Worst movie ever!!
Will Ferrell !! Enough said
Don’t write reviews often. But had to for this one. I thought with the other negative reviews it was just anti-humorous people writing in. But I’m a big fan of these two and thought the movie legit sucked. Was very disappointed. I’m a lover of ugly and crude comedy, like these two have put on in the past but this one was far from it. I understand why people got up and left. Save your money on this one and wait until it comes out on tv.
Terrible. Want the hour back I sat thru. Terrible. Humor is weak. More ridiculous than funny, there’s a difference.
Terrible. Not that funny. Waste of money and time.
TERRIBLE, LEFT ABOUT 30 MINS LATER.UGH HATED IT
WTF? I stayed and hated it. Checked my watch every 10 minutes because i wanted it to be over. Only reason I went for it was because there is such awful crap on - 3D this, aquaman/spiderman/bumblebee/J-Lo that. Crap. Come on holywood, wtf???
No rating. Because this movie should have never beeen made. It felt like someone ripped a catheter right out me . The comments say it a lot more funnier stuff then this movie. Will never watch another movie with them in it.
The Ending Was perfect, Full Circle!
0 is a better rating...Terrible... we walked out half way through.
This was the worst movie we have ever seen. Boring, mindless and not funny. Adding to it was the constant hunting that people in America are idiots who just dont know how to run their country. Of course we couldn't have anything come out of Hollywood without a couple swipes at Donald Trump. They can even work it in to a movie that takes place in the late 1890s, early 1900s. High schoolers could've put together a better movie. There are so many other ways I could've spent that two hours...scrubbing toilets, cleaning out a litter box, or picking up dog s#it. Dont waste your money or your time.
The unfunny Will Ferrell strikes again.
Wasn't very funny
It was SOOO funny! Hope they make another.
This movie was not funny and was very cheesy
Based on the reviews the only person giving this movie 5 stars is the actors so ouch I’ll pass thanks everyone for reviewing you saved me 2hrs of my life your sacrifice is noted!
Everything. Worst movie I have ever seen. Strained to not walk out..couldn't stand it any more..so I left 35 minutes into the film
'0' star would be more accurate. Awful writing and acting. One of the worst movies I have ever seen. Do not waste your money or time. So disappointed.
Less than 1 star. A really, really stupid movie. Sad part is that we planned to see Mortal Engine which started playing 12/28/18 and was told by the cashier that it was not playing yet, so we were stuck with Holmes & Watson. Double checked and Mortal Engine WAS playing....not happy campers.
Boring and stupid.
Huge let down
Junk, don't waste your time or money, many people asking for a refund.
Less than 1 Star. This movie is NOT funny. It’s stupid and full of nastiness. Boring, stupid and no one laughed. People walking out of the movie was the most excitement all night. Total waste of money and time.
