Trivia

Actor Billy Zane has a cameo in this film aboard the Titanic; an homage to his role in the 1997 film about the Titanic. See more »

Goofs

Even though the Titanic had four funnels only three actually functioned. The last one was fake, built to balance the ship's lines and make it look more impressive. However, this last funnel did serve a function as smokestack for the ship's massive galley. This is why when the Titanic is in shot, smoke can clearly be seen emanating from all four funnels.

Alternate Versions

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.

Ruined my popcorn.
27 December 2018 | by daniellawsonrtSee all my reviews

I love the experience of going to the movies, loading up with popcorn and Coca-Cola and sitting in big comfy chairs. It doesn't matter if the movie is good or bad. Then Holmes & Watson came along and changed all that. This film is a mess from start to finish, if you're expecting to see another Step Brothers or Talladega Nights, you will be sorely disappointed.
