Instant Family Blu-ray Review

From the creators of Daddy’s Home comes a heartwarming comedy for everyone. When Pete (Mark Wahlberg) and Ellie (Rose Byrne) choose to start a family, they stumble headfirst into the world of foster care adoption. After they learn their perfect foster child comes with two other siblings, Pete and Ellie find themselves speeding from zero to three kids overnight and must hilariously learn the ropes of instant parenthood if they hope to become a real family. Inspired by a true story, and also starring Octavia Spencer and Tig Notaro, discover the film critics have called “A MUST SEE FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY AND EVERY FAMILY” (Scott Mantz, COLLIDER).

Family movie nights is something the hubby and I love to do with the kids at least a few times a month. So when we received the blu-ray Instant Family starring Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne, we were pumped because they are two actors that we've loved in other films, put them together with three kids and it's hilarious and warmhearted.

This was such a great family movie to watch with the kids. Not every family looks the same or even comes together the same and it was nice for us to watch a movie about a couple adopting three siblings and how they experience forming their family to fit perfectly just for them. It was great to see that it wasn't all rainbows and sunshine and I'm glad my kids got to see that in this film too. It was a great film to watch as my kids kept identifying with the kids in the movie. I have three kids, a teenage daughter, preteen son and a four year old, so although it wasn't the exact same, it was great to hear my older two laugh at the kids in the movie and relate to them.

We were also sent a family viewing kit that included lots of goodies that made our family movie night more enjoyable. 

We loved every bit of  this movie and will be adding this one to our favorites collection. Instant Family is now out and available in stores on blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download.

Disclosure: All opinions are my own. I received Instant Famlily blu-ray and viewing kit at no cost for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was received.


  1. This looks like it's going to be a great movie, plus I love Mark!!

  2. I have this on my list of movies to see! My kids are a little young for it, but I think I would enjoy it.
