Holmes and Watson Home Video

Hey, Girl! “Holmes and Watson” Lands on Home Video in March

John C. Reilly and Will Ferrell have survived the least successful collaboration of their careers, and now it's available for you to watch and cackle in the comfort of your own home. With a dreadful 10 percent on Rotten Tomatoes and a box office haul of less than $40 million worldwide, it's such a dud that allegedly Netflix didn't even want it, and they put out the first Cloverfield movie that no one liked!

But for fans of this duo – boy, does Sony want to remind you how much fun Step Brothers was – there's a special chemistry and magic watching them together, even when the movie doesn't quite work. So if you're one of the dozens who are dying to get their hands on this star-studded affair – seriously, even Steve Coogan and Ralph Fiennes signed on for this – you don't have to wait much longer.

Holmes and Watson hits Blu-ray and DVD on April 9. The disc is packed with behind-the-scenes features and outtakes, plus a frankly disturbing number of deleted scenes. And if you need the alleged comedy sooner, you can get it on digital starting March 26.

About Kip Mooney

Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about. I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague. Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work. In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo. I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
