Funniest movie ever?

It's set to star Sacha Baron Cohen and Will Ferrell as Sherlock Holmes and Watson. It's produced by Judd Apatow. It's written by Etan Cohen (TROPIC THUNDER). And it may very well have rocketed to the top of must must-see list. Of course calling it the funniest movie ever is perhaps a slight overstatement but just hearing that Cohen and Ferrell will be co-starring as Sherlock Holmes and Watson makes me laugh (what can I say, I'm a cheap date). Easily the best post-ANCHORMAN Will Ferrell movie was TALLADEGA NIGHTS and that was due in no short part to Cohen's contributions. This movie should not be confused with Guy Ritchie's reboot of Sherlock Holmes at Warner Bros., which will be much more action/adventure oriented. While there may some action in this untitled film, it will be primarily comedy driven. Still no word on who would direct the film but I'd be all up for Adam McKay (TALLADEGA, STEP BROTHERS) returning to work with the two actors again. Cohen is still putting the finishing touches on BRUNO while Ferrell just wrapped filming on LAND OF THE LOST. It's unclear when this project would begin filming but let's hope it's quick.
