The first poster and trailer for the film "Holmes & Watson" have been released. Alan Menken and Glenn Slater wrote a song for the film.

The film was a financial and critical failure. The only positive thing the critics had to say was about Menken's song.

But there is still intermittent joy to be found in their autumnal bromance, which reaches apotheosis here in a late-breaking musical duet from the show-tune veterans Alan Menken and Glenn Slater.

Kindly note how what should have been no-brainer wins, like an Alan Menken-penned musical number and several parodies of slo-mo scenes à la the Robert Downey Jr. Sherlock movies, are virtually smothered in the crib.

And right when I’m about to give up, the film breaks out into Broadway style song and dance, waking me from my slumber.

I did find some endearing moments, like a catchy musical number written by Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater, sung by Ferrell and Reilly near the movie's end.

It’s that weirdness that makes the film’s big emotional payoff — which, amazingly, comes courtesy of Alan Menken and Glenn Slater — so fun when it finally kicks in.

A climactic musical number (it could be a parody of Les Miz) is positively award-worthy.

The script just keeps getting worse until, toward the end, there is a moment of utter genius: The show abruptly transforms into a musical, with a lavish, clever production of a well-written tune by composer Alan Menken (who has earned eight Oscars for his fantastic songs and scores.)

Collider wrote:
There is a very large musical number in this film that it was just so good that I was like 'maybe this movie should have been a musical'.

I didn't know this film featured a song by Menken.

I'm not surprised it flopped. While the two stars are both funny, a Sherlock-inspired comedy is probably too intelligent for the demo that they normally attract.
