This movie looked awful from the trailers and wasn't really looking forward to this movie but this movie really surprised me.Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne give good performances and the children actors are pretty good.The movie did have me laughing but some of the jokes I've seen before but,they still got me. At times the jokes were a bit cringe,most of the time the jokes did make me laugh.The story is predictable but its the charm and charisma of this cast that make this movie a fun and emotion filled ride.

No doubt the acting, writing and directing were good. But this is NOT a movie. It is a 118 minute promotional for foster care and homosexuality... that you pay to watch. Don't get me wrong, I am all for all children being a part of a loving family but the fans shouldn't be tricked into thinking they are paying to see an entertaining movie when in fact each person is being duped into watching a 2-hour advertisement. Hollywood needs to let go of their we-know-better-than-you agenda and get back to producing quality entertainment.

"Instant Family" is a textbook feel-good movie, and that is completely okay. If you want to watch a movie that is lighthearted and will make you happy, this one is a solid choice. The story is not a particularly new one and the themes have been done before, but the movie still manages to resonate due to the good performance, sweet story, and positive messages. I think this movie is one that has a good amount of humor and has dramatic moments that feel fairly grounded in reality. It's one of those movies that delivers exactly what this sort of premise promises. The movie isn't life-changing, but it made me smile and kept me entertained.

I am shocked that I loved this movie, but I really did.

Instant Family is fun but it does not stand out from the crowd with a very simple story of a family that does not get along at first but soon finds a common ground. There are so many versions of this same story that it is hard to fully enjoy it since it is so generic. The thing that stands out about Instant Family is the nice cast chemistry.

The ;movie really pulled at my heart strings. There were some very funny yet corny moments. The only downside is that it was pretty predictable.

This could have been a good funny movie, but really it is all about dumb and overacting at its best. Basically every time the mom and dad have a conversation or talking to one of the orphan kids, they always try and finish each others' sentences which got annoying real fast. Here is a made up example that was probably in the film or not:
-You know what I think we should adopt a child
-Ya I think we should its going to be great
-Hell ya its going to be great should be get a boy
-Yes lets adopt a boy
-Yes a boy what about a girl
-Let's get a girl too
-I'm find with that lets get both
-You wanna get both ok!

The orphan kids were sort of funny but not really what I was expecting and it has that plot where the kids hate the new parents at first but in the end they like them just like in The Spy Next Door. It was just average with not that many funny moments. Pass on this kids movie, I've seen better.

This is the best movie I've seen in years. Because we are an adoptive family I went to see it by myself first to see if it was appropriate for my son. We went back to see it together the next day and sat in the back row. We both cried and laughed. It was such a cathartic experience. This movie was a gift. If I met the filmmakers I would tell them that thank you. We recognized the people, the challenges, the guilt, the sorrow and the joy. It gave us a platform to discuss things that were hard to discuss. We're going back to see it with the entire family., and we are all going back through the foster parent training program one more time. Thank you for the honest and inspiring story..

The Story: Did this movie touch my heart? YES!!! I was shedding tears in the theater. Several scenes totally gave me "awwww"" moments! This movie is based on true story. The journey of adoption. The struggles and challenge they faced during their journey. Very inspiring and touching.

The Directing: The casts really put in great efforts to portray their characters. I was emotionally with them the whole movie.

This movie was beautiful and hilarious at the same time. I got teary eyed and cried a few times in this movie. The writing, story, and screenplay were hilarious, beautiful, and sad. The entire cast performances were stupendous especially Mark Wahlberg, Rose Byrne, Isabela Moner, Margo Martindale, Tig Notaro, Octavia Spencer, Gustavo Quiroz, Julianna Gamiz, and Julie Hagerty. Instant Family is my 2nd favorite comedy movie ever, my 3rd favorite drama movie ever, one of my top 5 favorite movies of 2018, and one of my favorite movies of all time. A+.
