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.

Do we want to spend 95 minutes of our summer holiday watching a film about a young, squabbling, dysfunctional British family on a sham trip? Yes, we do.

It's not what you'd call "major" cinema, but it's a breezy entertainment, particularly if you're a fan of one or more of the cast members.

A damp-eyed comedy whose banal title isn't the only thing needing improvement.

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.

What We Did On Our Holiday sets up a sturdy comic scenario and then proceeds to head in another direction altogether-one that's nearly impossible to anticipate, making the film much more of a goofy delight than would have seemed likely at the outset.

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

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

The film is funny, if predictable, about such subjects as motorway traffic jams, sibling rivalry and family feuding.
September 25, 2014
Veryimpressive and likable stuff.

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

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