Villain’s review published on Letterboxd :
I’ve said it before, but 2018 was a surprisingly decent year for studio comedies, and Instant Family deserves to be part of that group. It’s a really cute film, with a huge heart. It deals with foster parenting lightly with lots of humour, but it doesn’t make it look glamorous either.
I tend to like comedy Wahlberg more than action Wahlberg. Both he and Rose Byrne are both so cute and charming. Every little victory they have with these children felt like a victory for me. Isabela Moner looks like she’s set to become a star too.
Instant Family is a hard film to not like. I was smiling through most of it.
