Holmes & Watson Trailer (2018)
Trailer for Holmes & Watson, starring Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Rebecca Hall, Kelly Macdonald and Ralph Fiennes.
The Step Brothers are reunited -- this time playing the world's greatest consulting detective and his loyal biographer -- as Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly star as Holmes & Watson.
Sacha Baron Cohen was at one time cast to play the role of Watson.
While the idea was spawned from a skit Will Ferrell did on Saturday Night Live, the film obviously has no issue spoofing recent adaptations of the material.
While the concept sounds awesome, I'm having a hard time deciding if the film looks insanely funny or incredibly dumb. There are some witty moments sure, but a lot of parts that fall flat. And, if they think those are the best to show in the first trailer for Holmes & Watson, then we are in for some real trouble.
I do want to however give a nod to the awesome spoof of the slow-motion sequences used in Guy Ritchie's adaptations. That was great.
