Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly Don’t Have Clue in “Holmes and Watson” Trailer

The “Talladega Nights” and “Step Brothers” duo reunites for another comedy.

As far as perfect premises go, this one is elementary. Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are back, and this time the beloved pair are taking on author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary detective duo. A new trailer for Holmes and Watson offers a first peek at Ferrell as Sherlock and Reilly as Dr. Watson.

The trailer promises the most slapstick approach to Doyle’s source material. We’re promised Sherlock and Watson teaching the queen of England to take a selfie using a massive Victorian camera.
