What We Did On Our Holiday review

Outnumbered... in Scotland

Doug (David Tennant) wife Abi (Rosamund Pike) are preparing to drive to Scotland with their kids for his dad’s (Billy Connolly) 75th. There are, of course, complications… WWDOOH is bright, lively and funny – especially as regards the kids, whose dialogue is part improvised (a la BBC’s Outnumbered , whose director team Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin make their debut here).

Connolly’s on top form too, and the chemistry between Tennant and Pike convinces. Only in the last 10 minutes does the film lose traction, skidding into a facile feelgood ending.
