About the film
Release Date: Dec 26, 2018
Director: Etan Cohen
Actors: John C. Reilly, Will Ferrell, Ralph FiennesThe comedic dream team take on Arthur Conan Doyle's iconic detectives.
Did Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly just become best friends (again?) Yup. The “Step Brothers” and “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby” co-stars are at it again in “Holmes and Watson,” which deductive reasoners will quickly identify as a new take on the Sherlock Holmes mythos; Ferrell plays the detective, with Reilly as his trusted sidekick.
The Baker Street boys are tasked by the villainous Moriarty (Ralph Fiennes) with solving a mystery lest they risk the murder of the queen herself. Unfortunately, between the violent old-time-y selfies and the swarm of killer bees, she’s not going to fare too well in their hands either.
Ferrell’s portrayal is preceded by those of John Barrymore, Christopher Lee, Robert Downey Jr., and Ian McKellen, among many others.
It’s a cracking bit of fun. Bring the family.
