It’s taken the best part of ten years to reunite Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly on the big screen but finally contemporary comedy’s dream team is back in business with the eagerly awaited Holmes and Watson. Written and directed by Etan Coen as an hilarious homage to the enduring, ever popular characters created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Will plays the brilliant sleuth Sherlock Holmes and John is ever loyal assistant Dr. Watson. They’re supported by an all-star cast including Ralph Fiennes as the arch villain Moriarty, Kelly Macdonald as housekeeper Mrs.
When millionaire hedge fund manager James King (Will Ferrell) is nailed for fraud and bound for a stretch in San Quentin, the judge gives him 30 days to get his affairs in order. Desperate, he turns to Darnell Lewis (Kevin Hart) to prep him for a life behind bars. But despite James’ one-percenter assumptions, Darnell is a hard-working small business owner who has never received a parking ticket, let alone been to prison. Together, the two men do whatever it takes for James to “get hard” and, in the process, discover how wrong they were about a lot of things – including each other.
