Parents should know that Holmes & Watson is a comedy about the iconic detective duo of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The world’s most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes (Will Ferrell) and his partner, Dr. John Watson (John C. Reilly), have a new case to solve when James Moriarty (Ralph Fiennes) threatens to kill the Queen of England .
This is not the suffocating Sherlock Holmes you’re used to. I hope that Ferrell and Reilly bring the same dynamic and bustling comedy that they exhibited in Step Brothers and Talladega Nights, which probably means a lot of comedic violence, insults, insults and sexual advances. This is probably not appropriate for children, but teens who like to laugh may be interested in this historically inaccurate version of the famous literary characters.
