hough heart-warming and refreshingly daring with one of its plot twists, the film doesn't quite escape its televisual feel.

Outnumbered fans will find more enjoyment out of it than non-fan cinemagoers, but not enough to warrant heading to the big screen for the experience.

What We Did On Our Holiday just doesn't do or say that much, and what it does accomplish is fine at best. Oh, we should all be nicer to each other? That's the whole point of this disjointed thing? Yeah. OK.

Luckily for us, and unlike their bickering and scripted parents, the kids are largely left to improvise their parts and the result is mostly charming, sometimes hilarious.

This blandly titled comedy from the U.K. spends so much setup time being generically clever, it's truly unexpected when, a third of the way in, things heat up in oddball ways.

Clichd British dramedy deals with divorce, loss.

...What We Did on our Holiday actually succeeds pretty well despite its rather hackneyed premise.
July 9, 2015
A damp-eyed comedy whose banal title isn't the only thing needing improvement.
July 9, 2015
Underfoot is a cast of young kids given too many cutesy moments and one-liners. In the middle of it all are actors like Rosamund Pike and David Tennant.

Engaging but slight.

There are a few amusing moments and flashes of charm but this Holiday is an uneven trip, with underwritten adult characters and a strange third act involving a poke at misguided social services.
