Holmes and Watson : How could anyone not laugh during this movie?

How could anyone not laugh during this movie?

I was laughing out loud within the first 10 minutes of the film! It's a very funny parody of Sherlock Holmes and Watson.

Will Farrel and John C Reily are the best comedy team since Abbot and Costello, Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker, The Three Stooges.

I won't post the trailer because the trailer doesn't do the movie justice.

I rate Holmes and Sherlock a 8/10.

Well here is a clip anyway. I found the funniest moments of the film were actually the banter between Holmes and Watson and Holme's arrogance.

Re: How could anyone not laugh during this movie?

As a huge Holmes fan I really wanted to like this film but found it to be a huge disappointment. To be fair, I'm not rating or reviewing the film because I bailed after 20 mins. But here are some quotes from the critics:

This Will Ferrell/John C. Reilly parody of Sherlock Holmes is so painfully unfunny we’re not sure it can legally be called a comedy….ROLLING STONE

Holmes & Watson is one of those movies that goes beyond unfunny and into a comedy-cubist zone, where jokes are no longer recognizable and laughter is philosophically impossible….NEWSDAY
Puerile, imbecilic and imbued with the kind of casual 1970s sitcom homophobia that reads all male friendships as somehow suspect, this slack-jawed grossout comedy represents the nadir of Conan Doyle adaptations….THE GUARDIAN (UK)

It also rec'd the 2019 Razzie Award for "Worst Picture".

Re: How could anyone not laugh during this movie?

Yes I read the harsh criticism for the film, but I wanted to see for myself. I'm glad I did. I really liked the movie. It was hilarious.

To answer your question, because it wasn't funny.

Re: How could anyone not laugh during this movie?

Learn to take a joke. People are so uptight when it comes to Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick Watson. That's what makes the movie so freaking hilarious.

I love taking jokes. Especially when they're funny. This movie was pretty devoid of those particular types though. It was almost Dane Cookian.

Re: How could anyone not laugh during this movie?

Oh well. I enjoyed it a lot.

I love Will Ferrel & John C. Reilly. When they're on it they can make you laugh til you cry. This one though, a snoozer. I literally fell asleep 30 minutes in.

Re: How could anyone not laugh during this movie?

Wow that's too bad you feel asleep. I was laughing too much to fall asleep.

Re: How could anyone not laugh during this movie?

John C Reily and Will Ferrell have this special dynamic whenever they perform together. I'm sure they had a blast on set during filming. I enjoyed seeing those two act a fool with these characters.

To answer your question: because they didn't watch it.
