2019 is not off to a great start for movies. I know it will pick up but I am going to be brief about my write up on Holmes & Watson. More often than not there more bad movies than good ones out there. That is what makes seeing a good movie so enjoyable for me. I cannot even place Holmes and Watson in the “bad” movie category. It belongs in a separate category titled “unwatchable.”
Holmes and Watson is an early strong contender for worst movie of the year already. I didn’t want to believe all the bad hype surrounding this movie because I love Will Ferrell and John C. Reily. Step Brothers and Talladega Nights are two of my favorite comedies of all time so I held out hope that Holmes and Watson wouldn’t be as bad as people were saying. Boy oh boy was I wrong. Not only was it not remotely funny it was hard to watch because they had so many voice over scenes that the words were not even matching the lips of the actors or even worse they always showed the actors from behind because the dubbed over so many lines.
Look I am not even going into detail about the movie because I will save you even that trouble. This is a watch at your own risk movie because I for one will never watch this again.
Holmes & Watson is receiving 0.5 buckets of popcorn.
