Recommend the movie Instant Family

Instant Family review good movieInstant Family tells the story of a couple who were exploring the idea of getting a foster child when they suddenly end up taking care of three wild children.  Mark Wahlberg and Rose Bryne play the couple.  Wahlberg also produced the movie.

I found Instant Family to be heart-warming without being cliched.  There are plenty of fine performances, especially by the younger actors.  Isabela Moner shines as one of the foster children.

The movie contains humor but turns more serious at times.  I don’t want to spoil the plot for you, but overall it isn’t too dark considering the subject matter.  I found the story to be compelling.  This would be an enjoyable movie for many people.  The PG-13 rating seems accurate.  I believe that Instant Family was based on the life of the director, Sean Anders.

I seldom like a movie enough to recommend it.  This one I do.
