Instant Family is in theaters on November 16th, 2018.

Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne star as Pete and Ellie, a husband and wife who decide to adopt three children. They end up fostering with Lizzie, Juan and and Lita. It becomes clear that fostering isn’t easy and they struggle to make the family work. With the help of two social workers, Octavia Spencer and Tig Notaro (both hilarious and amazing) they navigate having an “Instant Family”.

This movie accurately depicts what raising children is like. The good, the bad and the extra challenges that come with adoption and fostering. It’s funny and sweet and I cried more than once.

Instant Family will definitely pull at your heartstrings. If you like Daddy’s Home you’ll like this one!

Also...shoutout to Grandma Sandy!
