So far, detective comedy Holmes and Watson has received pretty harsh reviews from critics.
Step Brothers actors Will Ferrell and John C Reilly have brought the iconic Sherlock Holmes character and his friend Dr John Watson back for this year's festive season, but we're not so sure even Santa himself could save it.
Since its release on Christmas Day, the film has received a puny 4 per cent rating on Rotten Tomatoes and some pretty scathing reviews from various publications.
It now looks like cinemagoers weren't too impressed with the film either.
Holmes and Watson is horrible ...this is almost the worst movie I have ever seen, it just keeps getting worse, not even stupid funny (why not do the typical Ferrell movie?) we are dying and not even watching it. @CoachCWC- Christy Christian (@Dreamajojo77) December 25, 2018

#HolmesAndWatson was the farthest slide from comedy I’ve had the unpleasant opportunity to view. Tragic end to a comedic era.- RJ Birtsch (@RyanWithAnO) December 25, 2018
@HolmesAndWatson is an absolute disaster. Had to wake up 3 other family members 40 minutes in just to walk out. Possibly overtakes Ishtar as worse movie of all time! Don’t waste your $ or time! #HolmesandWatson- GA for NU (@Coach_Devaney) December 25, 2018
Instead of blaming the writing maybe people will finally realize that Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly just aren’t that funny. #HolmesAndWatson- Pat Gibbons (@pggibbons) December 27, 2018
One fan tweeted: "Holmes and Watson is horrible ...this is almost the worst movie I have ever seen, it just keeps getting worse, not even stupid funny (why not do the typical Ferrell movie?) we are dying and not even watching it."
Other fans tweeted asking for a refund and advising people not to watch it.
If you’re thinking of seeing @HolmesAndWatson ..... DO NOT. It was so bad 😭- Ray (@itsraybans) December 27, 2018
Why is Holmes and Watson even advertising? At some point, isn’t it a waste of money to even try? pic.twitter.com/IkBdYU3cK4- Pranaya Pahwa (@veto_pahwa) December 27, 2018
