|When I walked into the cinema to watch 'What We Did On Our Holiday' I was quite looking forward to it. It looked like a feel-good family film with a quality cast (it stars Billy Connolly, David Tennant and Rosamund Pike) and of course it has to be good, it's directed by the same people who make outnumbered.|
And indeed throughout the film several similarities between the film and outnumbered did appear. Three rowdy kids, two hapless parents with a difficult marriage and a story about coping with what you've got.
The film was great, however not so much the feel-good film I was expecting. There's a shock twist about half way through and the way the kids react to it is unexpected to say the least. I would definitely recommend the film (it is funny after all) although perhaps not to a younger audience as it isn't quite the family film you expect.
None the less 'What We Did On Our Holiday' is a quality British film that entertains and conveys a nice message. Family is family, no matter how annoying they might be.
