FRED Watch Quickie Film Review: Holmes & Watson (2018)


I’m a Wayne Stellini and welcome to FRED Watch, where we review everything from the mainstream to the obscure. Today’s film is the contentious Holmes & Watson

Columbia Pictures / Gary Sanchez Productions / Mosaic Media Group / Mimran Schur Pictures / Sony Pictures Releasing

Detective Sherlock Holmes (Will Ferrell) and Dr. John Watson (John C. Reilly) set out to discover who is responsible for a threat at Buckingham Palace.

There is not much you need to know about Holmes & Watson except that it is a painfully dull, laboriously unfunny, and unredeemable piece of shit. 0 / 5
