Fans and critics agree with this.

This is the time to go to the movies with your family to celebrate the Christmas celebration – but if movie critics want to avoid one in particular, it would be Holmes & Watson, by Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly.
The Sony film – which was not shown to critics before its release on Christmas Day (never a good sign) – was gutted by all 12 of its reviews counted from the publication of this article. Not a single film critic has given Holmes & Watson a positive rating, which means she's rotten by Rotten Tomatoes.
Ben Kenigsberg of The New York Times advises that "drink smuggling to dispel the dull routine might only help," while Frank Scheck of The Hollywood Reporter writes: "You can feel the sweat of the flop emanating from the third par of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly. "
Rotten Tomatoes fans' critics were not very friendly, with user Tim M. writing, "Do not waste your money, one of the worst movies I've ever paid to see," and Jason A. suggesting, "It's just awful. repay everyone's money. "
As more criticism comes in – including that of IGN, which will be published today – there is a chance that the percentage will rise above the feared "zero" if any Rotten Tomatoes-rated critic gives the film a positive review. But if Holmes and Watson continue to be considered terrible by fans and critics, they will join The Ridiculous 6, the remake of Cabin Fever of 2016 and Max Steel as films that have been cemented forever by 0% at Rotten Tomatoes.
So what do you think? Holmes & Watson is really so terrible, or did you also avoid seeing him in favor of watching some of the other (best) movies in theaters now, including Spider-Man: In Spider-Verse, Aquaman, Bumblebee or Mary Poppins? ? Let us know in the comments! And for genuine fun with Ferrell and Reilly, note them by responding to the IGN Comments below:
