Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: The lowest and vilest alleys in London do not present a more dreadful record of the adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson than does Holmes and Watson.

Common Sense Says
Bad slapstick and innuendo ruin good-natured buddy comedy.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Holmes & Watson is an over-the-top comedy starring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly as the famous literary detective and his loyal companion. Expect lots of slapstick violence, with tons of smacking and hitting. Guns are fired, characters are stabbed, and a corpse (and some blood) is shown. There's also bullying and kids fighting. On the sex front, there's frequent eyebrow-raising innuendo and racy jokes/references (including several about masturbation), kissing, and some sensual flirting and stripping (nothing graphic shown). Language includes a use of "f---ing," plus uses of "s--t" and other words. The main characters get comically drunk in one sequence and use cocaine (played for humor); there are also references to other drugs, cigarette and pipe smoking, and a joke about a young girl with alcohol on her breath.
