Check out the video version of this review here: https://youtu.be/-UkuJNwo9S4 Will Ferrell has always been a comedian who gets me laughing, and I remember when I saw the trailer for Holmes and Watson I thought it looked like another chance for a jolly good laugh. Also starring John C. Reilly, this is a humorous take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic mysteries featuring Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson. In this film they have four days to solve a case or else the Queen will become the next victim. This has some laugh out loud moments, some scenes that will make you snort, and regular lulls in the story. If you go into this expecting laughs like Blades of Glory, Anchorman, or Step Brothers then you will come away disappointed. But if you set your expectations right and go in looking for low brow humour and dick jokes strung together by a very basic storyline, you might just have yourself a good time.
