Frequent co-stars Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly reteam for this absurdly hilarious take on famed detective Sherlock Holmes and his faithful sidekick, Dr. Watson. A threat on the life of Queen Victoria causes Holmes (Ferrell) and Watson (Reilly) to spring into action, leading them on a riotously ridiculous adventure as they try to track down brilliant criminal--and Holmes' arch-foe--Professor Moriarty (Ralph Fiennes).

Probably the worst movie I have ever watched. Gave up after 15 minutes.

What could have been a very funny movie but both the storyline and the performances we're bad. When a movie attempts to achieve a different comic take on two of the most well known characters in fiction, it had better be well written and star two actors that can pull it off.

Rubbish. Watched the first 15 minutes and gave up
if Conan Doyle was alive today he would probably turn in his grave.

Stupid, stupid, stupid! What more can I say, except that it was a total disservice to Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson?

Not a great movie but not as bad as some of the reviews have said. The movie jumps around in style a bit, ranging from a gross-out comedy to a parody of the Robert Downey Sherlock Holmes movies to even a period musical at one point. Temper your expectations a bit and you might like it, just don't expect a classic...

Watson: [referring to Holmes being sick at morgue] Are you sure you wouldn't rather wait here because last time

[gestures vomiting and diarrhea]

Holmes: I told you, that was merely a bout of stomach influenza

Watson: Yes, but the time before that?

Holmes: Bad clams.

Watson: And before that?

Holmes: I shook hands with a prostitute.

Only a few quotes in IMDb, more herein:
He would become a thinking machine, an unfeeling automaton.
===

She has the mental capacity of a four-year-old, but it is my belief that, with sufficient electroshock therapy, she can achieve the intellect of a six-year-old.
-We are truly in the golden age of medicine. There's nothing left to learn.
===
When one eliminates the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable,
is the truth.
===
At least, in America, our system's fair. No citizen can be found guilty till his case is heard by a jury of white property-owning men.
===
The Titanic. The marvel of London. A new castle, which runs on coal.
===
Millie. I have a confession to make. I'm not actually in love with you. In order to conclude my investigation, it was imperative that I understood what love felt like. I'm sorry to have led you on.
- I have a confession as well. I was also not in love. I was conducting an experiment on how easy it is to manipulate the male ego.

===
What a perfect day for a picnic at London's greatest spectacle, the Anglo-American Exhibition. A celebration of that special relationship between our nation and yours.
-Yes, such a special relationship between these two nations, although I could never live in a country with an unelected ruler like the Queen.
Why ever not?
-In America, we have democracy. Our president is a person our people have all chosen.
Mmm.
-An assurance that only the finest and most qualified man will lead, not a wealthy tyrant who cares for nothing but himself.
But you have the electoral college, which surely will prevent some trumped-up charlatan from gaining power.
-Not always, unfortunately.
It would be great to have a strong businessman. But a showman as well. I love a good show.
-America. We gave you your freedom, and now look what you've done with it.
