What We Did On Our Holiday
What We Did On Our Holiday (2014) is a British comedy-drama film with an all star cast featuring David Tennant, Rosamund Pike and Billy Connolly, inspired by the BBC show Outnumbered.
Doug (David Tennant) and Abi (Rosamund Pike) unite following a tense separation to take their 3 children to the Scottish Highlands to celebrate Doug's Father Georgie's (Billy Connolly) 75th birthday.
Even though they were asked to keep the marital difficulties a secret, the kids innocently reveal the ins and outs of their family life and many intimate details about their newly separated parents causing some rather tense moments!
Despite being terminally ill, fun-loving Geordie encourages his grand-children to let go of their troubles and enjoy life to the full.
A completely unexpected turn of events involving the children causes further tensions to rise to the surface. With the repercussions that follow, both hilarious and emotional in equal measure - the family are forced to put aside their differences and work together or else risk losing what they hold most dear.
Witty and well-cast, What We Did on Our Holiday injects unlikely laughs into a story dealing with emotional and difficult themes. Well worth watching, for both the laughs and the tears!
