Instant Family arrives in theaters today, November 16th!

Instant Family is a must-see comedy family film perfect for the holiday season! Directed by Sean Anders (Daddy's Home and Daddy's Home 2), Instant Family stars the incredible Mark Wahlberg, Rose Byrne, Octavia Spencer and a whole slew of comedians.

When Pete (Mark Wahlberg) and Ellie (Rose Byrne) decide to start a family, they stumble into the world of foster care adoption. They hope to take in one small child but when they meet three siblings, including a rebellious 15 year old girl (Isabela Moner), they find themselves speeding from zero to three kids overnight. Now, Pete and Ellie must hilariously try to learn the ropes of instant parenthood in the hopes of becoming a family. Instant Family is inspired by the real events from the life of writer/director Sean Anders and also stars Octavia Spencer, Tig Notaro and Margo Martindale.

Our Review
When Pete and Ellie decide to take the plunge on fostering, they are in for a wild ride. They instantly go from the "just us" quiet moments and dinners to a sibling set of three kids with a teenager at the forefront of it all. The dinners become hilarious chaos from one child just wanting to eats chips, an accident-prone child and the teenager with the bad attitude. 

This film will really tug at your heart too, so many kids are in the system and just desperately need a home, family and love. Many of you will relate to those same feelings and trepidation that Pete and Ellie felt, they weren't one of those amazing over charitable couples, they weren't special type of people that did these sorts of things, they were just everyday regular people that decided to foster/adopt. 

The storyline is very present in the way that it highlights the best and the maybe not so best of fostering. The comedy that exudes is relatable to any family. Instant Family is an instant hit for the family this holiday season.
