I loved this funny and heartfelt film, drawn from writer-director Sean Anders' and his wife’s experiences of fostering three kids. The running ‘Fixer Upper’ backdrop works brilliantly and I will see any comedy with Rose Byrne in. Go for a good laugh and the lasting feel good moments. Naomi

Rose Byrne & Mark Wahlberg in INSTANT FAMILY


When Pete (Mark Wahlberg) and Ellie (Rose Byrne) decide to start a family, they explore the world of adoption. When they meet a trio of siblings, including a rebellious 15-year-old girl (Isabela Moner), they find themselves unexpectedly 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.
