What a heartwarming story! I went to see it thinking I was gonna see just a silly comedy, but on top of the comedy, they gave us a beautiful message about adoption, that left me in tears! Bravo!

I really like the movie. it wasn't what I was expecting. it was more. from the previews you saw the funny, but it's about more than funny. it's real life and it happens. Made me want to think about foster care one day.

I expected this to be a more light hearted comedy and the film is quite funny, but it is really more of a dramady. I didn't expect it to be as moving as it is. This is well written, well edited, just a really great movie.

I really am adopted, so this was a special movie to see with my family. It was a hilarious depiction of becoming a family while still showing the hard parts. It moved my family to tears and is definitely worth seeing.

Instant Family didn’t just exceed my low expectations; it obliterated them. It’s the kind of honest, human comedy that’s so rare from Hollywood these days that when one finally comes along, you sit there in the theater in slack-jawed amazement and wonder: How does a movie like this happen?

While the film commits errors of taste and tact, and is generally all over the place from start to finish, those issues come off here as byproducts of a certain generosity — a sense that Anders wants to convey a full range of experience, including the messy stuff in between the usual formulaic notes and beats.

The switch between moods—obvious comedy and sermonizing message—comes often, and clumsily.
