While visiting family in the Scottish Highlands, a troubled couple try to put on a happy face, but their three children innocently reveal the ins and outs of their family life and many intimate details about their parents.
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.
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.
