You're not going to believe why people are walking out of Holmes and Watson! Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are one of the most dynamic comedy duos in Hollywood, having previously joined forces to split sides in Step Brothers and Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.
But sadly, Ferrell and Reilly's latest venture, the Sherlock Holmes spoof Holmes & Watson, looks like a total bust. Professional critics and a horde of Twitter randos alike say the film is so bad that some audience members are leaving theaters before the credits roll, with some even requesting refunds.
Directed by Tropic Thunder and Idiocracy co-writer Etan Cohen, Holmes & Watson opened on Christmas Day 2018, but wasn't screened to members of the media ahead of its wide launch. Once critics and fans actually feasted their eyes upon what ought to have been another hilarious Ferrell-Reilly two-hander, things went sour fast.
As of the making of this video, Holmes & Watson sits at a bleak five percent critical approval rating and 26 percent fan score on Rotten Tomatoes. One viewer wrote bluntly on Twitter,
"Holmes and Watson was the worst f---ing movie of all time. First movie I've ever walked out on."
"HolmesAndWatson is an absolute disaster. Had to wake up 3 other family members 40 minutes in just to walk out. Possibly overtakes Ishtar as worse movie of all time! Don't waste your $ or time!"
