Of all films ever... (by helen-holdsworth-118-75529)
Absolutely loved this film. I laughed, I smiled and I cried. The script is quirky and wonderfully imaginative. In an hour and a half 'What we did on our Holiday' manages to dissect family life and reconstruct it to embrace every aspect of the complete gamut of the generations and their interactions. And it does so with both sympathy and hilarity. Of all films ever, it's the one that has made me feel best about being human. Flawed is fine in each and every generation, but the beginnings and endings are infinitely easier than the muddle in the middle. The acting throughout is <more>
exceptional but the child actors deserve a sky-fall of medals. Great stuff!
Carrying on the tradition of Local Hero and Whisky Galore (by a-bark)
What a great film this is, carrying on in the Great British tradition of Local Hero and Whisky Galore. It has been a long time since I heard such laughter in a cinema and everyone came out with smiles. Now it's not some daft children's film, on the surface it looks a simple feel good romp, but it's not, it goes to very interesting places and it really took me by surprise. Set in Scotland it looks superb I'm a sucker for the Scottish landscape , The child actors are simply stunning their scenes with their Grandfather are beautiful the script apparently improvised at times <more>
sparkles with fun and creativity. How I recommend this film to anyone wanting a great trip to the cinema but please don't research it too much, watch out for spoilers and avoid them. Come to the film fresh as I did. Enjoy.
A Great British Comedy from the BBC (by Figgy66-915-598470)
30 September 2014 First Film of Choice at The Plaza Dorchester Tonight - What We Did On Our Holiday. A wonderful BBC production starring Rosamund Pike, David Tennant and the Big Yin himself Billy Connolly. Add to that three very talented and entertaining young actors and you have a film that is a giggle from start to finish. Abi Pike and Doug Tennant are going through a bitter divorce but trying to hide it from their very astute children. As a family they are heading to Scotland to celebrate Doug's Dad's Connolly 75th birthday. With a hard fought for agreement with their kids <more>
the couple decide to hide their troubles from the rest of the family in Scotland and what follows is a hilarious series of events led by the children an their irascible grandfather. I came out at the end and said 'I can't believe they did that!!!!!', you need to go and see this film to see what I mean. A great advert for Scotland too. The scenery was beautiful.
Moving, Funny and Family Friendly (by neilandjo-120-342587)
We all loved this - me, my friend and my 2 daughters, 13 and 11. It's about a warring couple on the brink of divorce who take their three young children on holiday to Scotland to visit the husband's father, who has terminal cancer, on the occasion of his 75th birthday. It turns into an even more surprising birthday than anyone has imagined. David Tennant, Rosamund Pike, Billie Connolly, Ben Miller and Amelia Bullmore are all wonderful actors playing their parts to perfection and the children were as stunningly natural and funny as the children in the TV series Outnumbered. Andy <more>
Hamilton and Guy Jenkin had a great idea and have turned it into a funny and moving film. An extremely poignant scene was beautifully acted and directed and there were a fair few belly laughs as well as tears shed. There was some swearing but nothing worse than they hear routinely at secondary school, so though it was rated 12A I was never uncomfortable I'd taken my 11 year old daughter. Go and see it!
Funniest film I have watched in ages (by johnbarry221)
I was hesitant to go to see this, since the critics panned it by and large . But absolutely no regrets. I have rarely seen a cinema full of people having so much fun. Great one liners, touching moments which still retain some authenticity despite a daft plot, and brilliant child actors. The three leads - Billy Connolly, Rosamund Pike and David Tennant - all turn in notable performances, but its the three children who are the most remarkable. There are also some nice positive life messages worked in, to take or leave as the viewer wishes. Not to be missed.
Great Fun Despite a Few Small Flaws (by Sahl_95)
'What We Did On Our Holiday' is about a couple with some issues and their three kids with their own quirks who travel to Scotland to visit their very ill grandfather.I went into this movie blind and the only thing I read was what was on the poster, "Hilarious British comedy at its best", and for the most part, it lived up to that. Pretty much all the comedic moments had the theatre laughing. And what I did not expect was for the three young kids to be as hilarious as they were. The best part of the movie, in my opinion, was the middle part of the movie with the three <more>
kids spending time with their grandfather played by Billy Connolly who was brilliant . The sad moments of the movie were also well done, much to my heart's displeasure. The only problem I had with the movie were the parents of the three kids. They were a few jokes that did not feel right, especially one scene where they fight in the bathroom.Still, this is a great movie to watch. It has a few surprises and for once the kids make this movie awesome. The ending was also decent, although a bit more predictable than the rest of the movie.
Brilliant acting by all 3 children. Many clever lines that had the audience laugh out loud. Super Scottish scenery and great advert for Wester Ross as a wonderful escape location, Slightly contrived happy ever after resolution but good light hearted family viewing. Great ostriches. And a view of kids grasp of the adult world. Enjoy the violin playing and jig at the end but bring air plugs for Thr practice sessions. Traditional portrayal of Scottish rural police! Imrie is in her element as a small character role; heart warming.Good look at family dynamics and relationships. Connolly plays a <more>
wonderful loving Grandfather who shows wise approach to difficult members of his family as he comes face to face with his own death.
From the great cast and idea, as well as the trailer being as entertaining as it was, What We Did On Our Holiday did look really promising. And it didn't disappoint, one or two tonal shifts jar just a tad and the material for David Tennant and Rosamund Pike wasn't quite as strong as that for the children and Billy Connolly though it wasn't at all bad either but it's a lovely film overall that entertains and touches. What We Did On Our Holiday is well-shot, never doing too much or too little, complementing the gorgeous scenery adeptly, while the soundtrack is appropriately <more>
understated and the film's sympathetically directed, allowing the story to resonate, the script to sparkle, accommodating the actors and using the idea to its full potential. There is a perfect balance of humour and pathos in the script, the humour especially with the children is often laugh-out-loud funny and the dramatic pathos parts are genuinely poignant. The story always engages and apart from at the end slightly it never feels too predictable, there are a number of surprises and What We Did On Our Holiday has a lot to say about family life and deals with it sympathetically and warmly in a way that allows us to completely identify with the situation and the characters, who all have a great amount of likability. The performances are excellent with the interplay between the actors even stronger, the chemistry between Connolly and the children is just adorable. David Tennant and Rosamund Pike are fine though Connolly and the children make much more of an impact, mainly due to better material. Connolly is very funny and also very moving, not just the character's situation which is enough to break anybody's heart but also it felt like a personal performance with Connolly being as gifted at comedy as he is and his ailing health. The children steal the show, Harriet Turnball is just hilarious and Emilia Jones also plays her role with a lot of charm. All in all, a lovely film that promised a good deal and delivers even more. 8/10 Bethany Cox
I will always think of this as a feature-length 2.4 Children. It made me laugh aloud, it made me shed a tear. There was one tiny subplot that wasn't tied up Odin which lost it a point, but well worth seeing. Family friendly, because, honestly, what kid hasn't heard swearing before? The kids are fabulous, the adults are insane and the whole mess of a birthday party is hilariously tragic. I will happily look out for more films by this writer/director pair. Have a watch of this film. A slight niggle is the unrealistic speed with which they navigated the M25. That just doesn't <more>
happen in real life, though the standstill traffic on the M1 was spot on.
