What We Did On Our Holiday

Saturday night on the couch and I thought I would watch one of the $2.99 special movies on Apple TV.   What We Did On Our Holiday is a British movie with a simple premise.  Mum and Dad and three cute kids are driving to Scotland to visit their dad/grandad played by Billy Connelly who is celebrating a significant  birthday.

I won't give the whole plot away, Wikipedia can tell you the whole thing.   I really liked the middle portion, but felt beginning and end were a bit flat and boring.  Billy Connelly was especially good in his role and it never seemed like he was acting, more like just being a version of himself.  3/5

Billy Connolly is good and can usually enliven a movie. That he can be more than just himself I discovered when he played John Brown in the historical drama "Mrs Brown". It's too bad the rest of this film didn't reach his standard.
