What is Holmes & Watson about?

In 1867 England, Sherlock Holmes (Will Ferrell) suffered constant bullying from his classmates as a child; as a result, he sealed his emotions and dedicated his efforts strictly to knowledge, getting his classmates expelled for breaking rules. He befriends the caretaker's child John Watson (John C. Reilly), who is impressed with his brilliance. Years later, Holmes is viewed as a legendary detective. Both he and Watson are to view the trial of Professor James Moriarty (Ralph Fiennes), but are temporarily waylaid by a package sent by Moriarty and brought to them by their housekeeper, Mrs. Hudson. At the trial, Holmes reveals the man accused of Moriarty's crimes is an imposter named Jacob Musgrave, who is incapable of committing the murders due to tremors in his hand caused by excessive masturbation. Despite attempts by Inspector Lestrade (Rob Brydon) to convince Holmes that his deduction is incorrect, Holmes is convinced that Moriarty is currently traveling to the United States.
After the trial, the duo travel to Buckingham Palace to attend a surprise birthday party for Holmes, where they discover a corpse inside of a birthday cake along with a message from Moriarty, stating that Queen Victoria (Pam Ferris) will die in 4 days' time. During the autopsy, Holmes and Watson meet Dr. Grace Hart (Rebecca Hall) and the feral Millie. Watson and Holmes become enamored with Grace and Millie, respectively. By the end of the autopsy, Watson declares that the corpse's cause of death is indeterminable, while Holmes believes that the person was poisoned. Furthermore, he believes that the poison came from Gustav Klinger. The pair eventually locate Klinger, who is indeed in league with Moriarty. Before Klinger can reveal anything, he is murdered.
