Instant Family is based on a true story about Ellie and Pete (Rose Byrne and Mark Wahlberg), a couple find themselves in over their heads when they adopt three children, although it does look like the sort of film that’s *loosely* based on reality as it aims for a comedy style.
Sicario 2‘s Isabela Moner, who is also leading in next year’s Dora The Explorer film, plays the oldest daughter that the couple foster, but she previously co-starred with Wahlberg in 2017’s Transformers: The Last Knight.
Instant Family is released in the US on November 16th, yet isn’t out in the UK until February 15th 2019, and Jan/Feb is always the dumping ground for non-Oscar/BAFTA movies which are rubbish.
