A great mix of laughter and tears. The kids are fantastic and I have never scene Wahlberg cry in a movie so much. Rose Byrne does a fantastic job too. Go see this movie, you won't regret it.

I didn't expect much, but I was floored by the extremely nuanced and heartfelt themes of this movie. It's not the fluffy comedy that the posters and trailers might lead you to expect.

There's a lot of things I liked about this movie. It touched a lot of emotions. It'll make you laugh, it'll make you cry, it will make your heart ache at times. It sheds light on something a lot of us know very little about. They did a good job on this movie. Go see it.

I watched this movie this past weekend and absolutely loved because it was funny and sad at the same time.

A must see for the holiday family. The best party of this movie is it's spread if time to make it an "after Thanksgiving"/Christmas movie as well as just being an anything movie.

Surprisingly effective film about a couple adopting three children. Isabela Moner as the teenage girl is the highlight here though Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne are both effective.. Good bits by the supporting cast as well.

this has that made-for-TV Hallmark channel vibe
but it reunites Mark Whalberg and Isabela Moner for a heartwarming story about having a family despite no blood relations
doesnt exactly paint a true picture of the foster care system but anyone hoping to adopt children will get some good sentiment out of it
this is actually based on the director's real life as well and totally related to me on a personal level
Mark Whalberg and Rose Byrne play a couple whom are both in a rut; they seem to be the only ones without children and putting it off for so long
so they decide to fill that void adopting not 1, not 2 but 3 Latino kids
the oldest is Lizzie played by Isabela Moner who traditionally goes through all the raging hormones but there's a reason she hates the world since her birth mother couldnt get her act together and ended up in prison and Lizzie was forced to be the parent for her siblings
now Whalberg and Bryne deal with the ups and downs of having kids around, at times they want to just throw in the towel but isnt that how every parent feels?
the job of parenting comes with good and bad, the only way through it is together, the kids need protection whether they want it or not, plus love is what they're supposed to provide
granted there's jarring tonal shifts here from being super dramatic to overly funny, some of it isn't balanced that well but there's enough of that close family vibe to recommend it

Some of the comedy seemed a little far fetch but it was a great and fun experience.

I cried and laughed and cried and laughed. I didn't have enough time to finish crying or laughing because the movie was good with pacing the emotions. Great movie!

Wish movies like this got the big box office and won all the awards. Moved me from laughter to tears in seconds. Wonderful stuff. Real enough to be very funny though most of it but real enough to be painful as well.
