Synopsis
It’s paced pretty nicely, helped along with an at times tart and mostly witty script, with the director duo having writing credits too. Pike is nothing short of charming, as is indeed, the film.

Story: Newly separated, Doug (Tennant) and Abi (Pike) along their three kids Lottie (Jones), Mickey (Smallridge) and Jess (Turnbull) make for a hilariously dysfunctional bunch. Doug and Abi agree to put their troubles aside and travel together from their home in London to Scotland, for Doug's dad Gordie's (Connolly) birthday.

Review : Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin base this uniformly hilarious family portrayal on their BBC sitcom Outnumbered. Doug and Abi have their hands more than full with their three kids. The youngest, Jess, has a certain straightforwardness borne out of her tender age that pretty much cuts through any kind of nonsense. Precocious to the tee, adorable is an apt description for her. Lottie is the sharp-eyed observant elder sister who keeps a diary, noting down all sorts of day-to-day minutiae. And Mickey pretty much has a mind of his own.

Connolly's portrayal of Gordie - that of the tough-talking Scotsman - is spot-on. His other son Gavin (Miller) is a lot more successful than his brother Doug and minces no words in making that clear to Doug. Gavin's wife Margaret (Bullmore) however, has some fairly serious anger management issues. As they all gather under one roof for what they think is going to be a grand celebration, things take a decidedly different turn and all warring factions feel themselves compelled to just get along - the exact kind of thing that would make the best birthday present for Gordie.

To their credit, Hamilton and Jenkin make sure that all of their principal cast members flesh out their respective characters really well. Apart from the humour, there are some rather poignant and moving scenes as well. For example, the one where Gordie takes his three grandchildren out for a drive, believing that he would actually have a better time with them, rather than the party of squabbling adults back at home. It's paced pretty nicely too, helped along with an at times tart and mostly witty script, with the director duo having writing credits too. Pike is nothing short of charming, as is indeed, the entire film.
