After watching this film, and remembering when I'm around young children, it reminds me: watch what you say, do and how you behave when around them, because they are sensory sponges. They soak in every word, watch every behavior, touch every thing that may interest you. And they will throw that information back at you, usually at the worst possible moment. This is a story of a typical family going on vacation (what Brits and Europeans call "Holiday") to see their ever fun, wise and wise cracking (but dying) grandfather on his upcoming birthday, played with calm brilliance by the iconic Billy Connolly. Throughout the film you witness the typical ridiculousness of the standard adults as their petty arguments and mistakes are observed and commented on by their very young but very observant, insightful and intelligent children, ranging from what looks like from age three to age nine or ten. Throughout the movie I'm just waiting for what discourse or response the kids will give based on their limited knowledge of life, and each time it makes the adults look foolish and immature by comparison. Even when the children do an incredibly shocking yet extremely touching act, it brings the adults to take a long, hard look at their behavior. The end of the film was a bit of Hollywood cliche cop-out, but it's listening to the kids and their observations and frank, apt commentary that works for me, especially the youngest daughter. They're all fine actors that support a wonderful cast of British and Scottish actors, all of whom we've seen in various popular BBC shows or feature films. It's a tad racy so despite the young kids as prominent stars, the subject matters discussed (family conflict, divorce, infidelity, criminal activity, and especially death) is definitely PG-13 (but not a "soft" R-rating, IMHO). But if you feel you have a nice honest relationship with your children to feel comfortable enough to discuss touchy subject matter, and they're old enough and have a basic understanding of these themes (or at least have asked questions about them), then this may be a nice film to watch with them. I liked it a lot.
