I had the opportunity to reflect on a personal message while watching, “Instant Family”, which hit theaters nationwide this weekend.

Instant Family Movie Review

Instant Family Story Line

“Instant Family” is based on the true story of the screenwriter and director.

A married couple, that is very settled in their ways, decides to become foster parents rather quickly.

While you’re watching, you’ll discover what it’s really like (and I can attest to this, having been through it myself) to welcome foster children into your home.

It’s a movie that will literally keep you laughing and crying (in a good way) throughout the entire journey.


The Movie Resonates with the Audience

My family knows from experience that fostering a child is a lot of work, but it is entirely worth it.

The love that you feel for a child when you embrace them as they are and welcome them into your home is tremendous.

It impacts you just as much as the child. You are all forever changed.

I think that’s why I loved “Instant Family” so much.

The movie depicts what it’s like to foster and adopt a child in a way that is so real and raw that it resonated with me nearly instantly.

How was Instant Family?

“Instant Family” is easily my favorite movie I’ve seen in years.

It’s raw, real, genuine, and overall really well done.

The story line, the cast, the acting all work so well to create a great family movie to see this year.  It really is perfect for all ages.

As we take time to reflect on all we are thankful for this holiday season, I personally encourage you to see Instant Family. You will love the feel good story and you’ll learn a lot along the way too.

Cast of Instant Family:

Mark Wahlberg, Rose Byrne, Isabela Moner
