Critic Reviews for What We Did on Our Holiday

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (18) | Rotten (5)

Amiable observational humour and likeable performances.

Top Critic

Connolly's on top form too, and the chemistry between Tennant and Pike convinces.

Full Review… | September 28, 2014
Total Film

There are plenty of close-to-the-bone belly laughs as the estranged McLeods hit the road for Scotland, after which an unexpectedly morbid twist takes us into altogether darker territory ...

Observer [UK]

Although its story easily could have spun right off the rails, this British comedy uses earthy honesty to win the audience over.

Full Review… | September 28, 2014
Contactmusic.com

A shambolic farcical twist is engineered that makes no practical, emotional or even comic sense.

Full Review… | September 28, 2014
This is London

Engaging family comedy What We Did on Our Holiday sees the creators of Outnumbered repeating the BBC sitcom's winning mix of beleaguered parents, cute scene-stealing kids and spot-on observational humour with audience-pleasing results.

Movie Talk

You deserve some sort of honour if, as a creator of comedy, you devise a technique so solid that it can translate from TV to film without losing any of its personality

Full Review… | September 26, 2014
Irish Times

The film is funny, if predictable, about such subjects as motorway traffic jams, sibling rivalry and family feuding.

Full Review… | September 26, 2014
Independent

There's a lovely loose feel to What We Did on Our Holiday, partly down to the fact that while the adult characters have tightly scripted dialogue the child actors were allowed a good deal of leeway.

Full Review… | September 26, 2014
Irish Independent

This holiday is about as much fun as a wet weekend in Chernobyl.

Full Review… | September 26, 2014
Daily Mirror [UK]

The tonal shifts can be a touch jarring, but there is a thin line between comedy and tragedy that is all the more poignant seen through innocent eyes.

Full Review… | September 26, 2014
Radio Times

Veryimpressive and likable stuff.

Full Review… | September 25, 2014
Guardian

Is there any more tired device for illustrating growing attraction than a montage sequence where the characters make funny faces for photographs?

Full Review… | September 25, 2014
Guardian

It's as wry and naturalistic as you'd expect, while warm, emotional work from the adult leads gives the film a crucial lack of bias towards Doug and Abi's relationship.

Full Review… | September 25, 2014
Sky Movies

This garbled and nonsensical Brit farce has apparently been inspired by Kids Say The Funniest Things.

Full Review… | September 25, 2014
Little White Lies

Despite a second act lull, Connolly convinces in this cute and charming comedy.

Full Review… | September 25, 2014
Empire Magazine

It's thought-provoking and unexpected, if not something to write home about in a hurry.

Full Review… | September 25, 2014
Daily Express

We all have our off days, and our supremely off days, and now I, too, have learned An Important Life Lesson: you can have disastrously off days too.

Full Review… | September 25, 2014
The Spectator

[It] has sincerity and genuine charm.

Full Review… | September 25, 2014
Daily Telegraph

This is a strange and unexpected comedy that turns its clichéd premise on its head and emerges with something worthwhile.

Full Review… | September 25, 2014
Digital Spy

The comedy and the tragedy are deftly balanced but what impresses the most is the way everything unfolds from the children's perspective. As we drop down a couple of feet, it's the adult world that needs to grow up.
