The film opens with a fake quote from a Hannah Montana episode; Season 2, Episode 4. "Logic is the sword by which we slay ancient superstitions. But lo, the heart has its own truths to tell us." See more »
US and international versions have two different pre-title scenes, showing how the pair first met:
In the US release, Watson helps a bullied Holmes when the two are children.
In the international release, Watson attempts suicide above Holmes' garden, where he is growing a large vegetable. Holmes manages to convince Watson not to, although he is actually suggesting alternative methods instead, which Watson misinterprets. Nevertheless, Watson accidentally falls onto Holmes' vegetable.
The movie was explosively bad. Other reviewers have said it, but it's so bad, it's worth stating again. There were a lot of people that made one bad decision after another to get this trash to the theatre. The film's inept writing, directing, and acting is really rather astonishing. The un-funny gags were telegraphed so badly you couldn't help but see the mediocrity coming, and when the gag came and went while the theatre went silent, I'm certain I've got allies in my review. I'm really disappointed because this movie could have been terrific and side splittingly funny but it missed badly at every level.
My biggest gripe, however, was what seemed to be an entire movie made so the writer, Etan Cohen, and others I'm sure, could go political. What a total s**t show. I go to movies as an escape, to enjoy my self, and to take a break from reality. Frankly I'm more than a little bothered having spent my money so Etan can tell me about his politics. I may or may not agree with him, but that's not the point. Do you see my point?
There's no spoilers here other than to say this is the worst movie I've ever paid to see; it's political, and I doubt there is anyone on screen I'll bet supporting again. Oh, the one redeeming quality? It's the amazing reclining leather chairs in the remodeled theatre, it was the only reason I stayed.
