The movie currently sits at a 0 percent on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, as of 8 a.m. PT with 12 reviews accounted for. (The movie was not screened in advance for critics, so subsequent reviews will likely be added that may affect the score.)
Reilly and Ferrell parody Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detectives, leading a cast that includes Kelly Macdonald, Rebecca Hall and Ralph Fiennes.
The Hollywood Reporter‘s critic Frank Scheck wrote of the holiday comedy that released Dec. 25: “Numerous talented British thespians are wasted in supporting roles in this Christmas turkey that, not surprisingly, wasn’t screened in advance for critics. Although making them troop out to theaters Christmas morning is something of which even Ebenezer Scrooge wouldn’t have approved.”
The movie opened at a crowded Christmas Day box office, placing No. 4 behind Aquaman, Bumblebee and Mary Poppins Returns, and earning $6.4 million.
As 2018 comes to a close, two other films released this year earned 0 percent fanfare: The Amber Heard-starring mystery adaptation London Fields and John Travolta’s Gotti, the biopic about the late mobster John Gotti.
