This was a very beautiful and enjoyable movie...

Alright, well granted I hadn't really expected much from a movie such as "Instant Family", believing it to be just another quick run-of-the-mill comedy with pseudo-action star Mark Wahlberg. But still, I decided to sit down and watch this 2018 movie.

It turns out that this was actually one of the better movies with Mark Wahlberg in the lead for some time, and I honestly can say that I prefer him better in the comedy genre than I do in the action genre. But naturally he wasn't the sole force carrying this movie. He had some great help by the rest of the cast, and also the fact that the storyline was so warm and heartfelt.

This is the story of Pete (played by Mark Wahlberg) and Ellie (played by Rose Byrne) whom decide to adopt three children, Lizzy (played by Isabela Moner), Juan (played by Gustavo Escobar) and Lita (played by Julianna Gamiz). And it turns out that adopting three children might be a bit more than what the couple thought they were in for and bargained for. Of which there comes some great funny moments and so clashes of heads.

While the story is indeed mostly driven by the comedy, there is also a more serious aspect to it, the part of adopting children and the role adopted children have in a foster family. And I think that director and writer Sean Anders really handled that quite well, managing to mix comedy and grave seriousness together in a very nice combination.

The movie also had some great support appearances from Tig Notaro and Octavia Spencer, whom each individually brought something wonderful to the story, and they had really great on-screen chemistry.

"Instant Family" might actually have you in tears towards the end. Why? Well, I will not spoil that, although it is quite easy to guess why, given the synopsis of the story and the concept of the storyline. But still, it was a warm and heartfelt story and a very uplifting ending to the movie, although you saw it coming from the moment you started watching the movie.

If you haven't already seen "Instant Family", then I can warmly recommend that you do so if you are given the chance, because it is a beautiful story, and one that will stick with you for some time.

Incredibly accurate

I grew up in the foster care system and lived in 7 different homes. This film was refreshingly accurate in terms of what it is like in the system and the adjustment periods when moving to a new family. The teenage daughter's rebellion, the honeymoon period, the awkward reactions from the other relatives, all of it is the real deal. I cried my eyes out throughout this film because it brought a flood of memories rushing back to me. I finally have a film that I can show someone when I want them to understand what it was like for me as a foster child. I loved it so much. If you want some insight into how the foster care system works, or you're just looking for a heartwarming film about family, this film is a MUST WATCH.

Instant Family

Pete (Mark Wahlberg) and Ellie (Rose Byrne) are a married couple who make a good living renovating houses. They decide to become foster parents.

They enrol on courses on foster care headed by two social workers Karen (Octavia Spencer) Sharon (Tig Notaro.) Soon they bring home three kids whose mother was a crack addict. Lizzy (Isabela Moner) is a rebellious teenager who had to look after her younger brother Juan who is accident prone and sister Lita who is a little brat.

Of course being foster parents is harder than they imagined. After all the three children are from a broken home. Just as Pete and Ellie think they have made a breakthrough, the kids natural mother comes on the scene.

This comedy is from the same team that made the Daddy's Home movies. It has a few funny moments and plenty of contrived scenarios. It is too slapdash with a tone that is all over the place ranging from crude to sentimentality.

The film wants to highlight the issues faced by kids in the American care system. However the focus is too much on Pete and Ellie who really seem to be unprepared as foster parents.
