When you think of the word family, what comes to mind? Is it the crazy family functions you attend every holiday, or is it the late night conversations at the dinner table. What if it’s the friends you call family or even the adopted cousins that soon feel as if they are blood related. Each family is full of chaos that makes them special in their own way. Every family tree holds a story within; from the roots up love and laughter are shared. In the movie Instant Family the viewer gets an insight on different types of families. They see the journey from beginning to end.

 

The struggles of a family are normal, right? Well, the answer to that is easier to come up with than one might think, but the strength of a family grows based off their stories. At the beginning of the movie, it shows that Pete and Ellie ( Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne) are fixing up a house. The irony of this movie began from the opening scene. Fixing up a house takes time, it takes patience, and most of all it takes planning. Fixing up a house is like raising a family, you learn as you go.

 

Instant family focuses on building a family through the adoption process. If you are someone like me that has never been through the system, then you probably do not know how any of it works. I know this movie was meant for a heart touching film, but it is secretly filled will a lot of information. This movie shows the ins and the outs to the best and the worst case scenarios when adopting. It shows step by step of how everything falls into place when creating the perfect family. All the meetings, the planning, and learning to accept a new life style is what makes this movie special. The chaos caused to make a family is what makes this eye opening movie worth the watch. Instant family is rated PG-13 due to language reasons, but it will be best understood by an older audience as well. I recommend this movie to people that enjoy family films and a few chuckles.

    I really enjoyed this review. I liked how you compared raising a family to fixing up a house because both take time and patience. I also liked how you described the way the movie gives an insight to the adoption process because some people aren’t familiar with it. Great article!

    I went and saw this movie right before break, and loved it! You did a great job portraying the movie. I like how you mentioned the comparison between them fixing up their home and fixing/building their family. I was able to relate to the adoption parts of the movie because I grew up with my grandparents raising 5 adopted kids, and the things they talked about in the movie were very similar from what I saw. Great article, keep up the good writing Brooklynn!
