Holmes & Watson

Etan Cohen, director of the 2015 comedy Get Hard, reunites with leading man Will Ferrell for a rumbustious romp based on the characters created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Sherlock Holmes (Ferrell) is a consulting detective in Victorian London, who tackles the most fiendish cases with the help of trusted companion Dr John Watson (John C. Reilly). The men's methods are unconventional to say the least but somehow, they unmask criminal masterminds before Inspector Lestrade (Rob Brydon). During a visit to Buckingham Palace, Holmes and Watson witness a murder. A note left at the scene, purportedly from Sherlock's great rival Professor Moriarty (Ralph Fiennes), challenges the detective and his sidekick to solve the case within four days or Queen Victoria (Pam Ferris) will perish. The clock is ticking as Sherlock and Watson sift through the evidence, buoyed by the support of loyal housekeeper Rose Hudson (Kelly Macdonald) and Sherlock's brother Mycroft (Hugh Laurie).
