Instant Family (2018)

Instant Family (2018), released theatrically in North America in November, is heading for a March DVD release in the USA, but I, for one, won’t be watching it. It’s not that I think it’s a bad movie going by the trailer. It seems to be a film with good values.

But simply because I don’t want to engage it, and is probably something I wouldn’t enjoy as entertainment.

However, this post will review the trailer of Instant Family instead.

Awkward with a capital A is how I felt watching the trailer of Instant Family, as one of a decent couple (played by Rose Byrne and Mark Wahlberg) considers fostering out a couple of troubled children. The other partner is not impressed, but who may come around, though.

Fostering will add to their already hectic lifestyle. When the adorable children do come into their lives, there is the usual shenanigans, a series of awkward comic moments that pushes the couple, and the audience, out of their depth entirely, unless the audience can relate in a positive, humorous way. Nevertheless, it winds up on the winning, heart-warming side, where things tend to go better than expected.

May I add that life can sometimes be like that in these sorts of situations.
