From the creators of the hit BBC comedy series Outnumbered What We Did on Our Holiday is a heart-warming, uplifting comedy, drama that explores the meaning of life and suggests how best to live and love.
Doug (David Tennant) and Abi (Rosamund Pike) and their three children travel to the Scottish Highlands for Doug’s father Gordie’s (Billy Connolly) birthday party.
With Gordie old and dying the couple decide not to tell him that they have split up and swear the children to secrecy. But it soon becomes clear that when it comes to keeping a secret their children are their biggest liability.
Despite dealing with the heavy topics like death or divorce this movie injects humour into every situation.
The movie portrays the best and worst of family holidays. On the long drive to get to Scotland the parents bickering in the front while the three kids fuss in the back. But when they get there there are new people to meet, new situations to experience and new places to explore. It’s a chance for the family to bond across the generations with lots of laughs.
There’s the inevitable friction caused by family being thrown together on holiday and an unexpected turn of events that sees the police getting involved.
With some lovely Scottish scenery, a great cast and a fun script What We Did on Our Holiday is a great movie to watch with your extended family.
Here’s the trailer to give you a taste of the movie – and hopefully a wee laugh too.
