After seeing the trailer for Instant Familyseveral months ago in 2018, I really wanted to get excited about it because the story looked like a great one and because I like both of its main stars, Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne. Having previously seen Wahlberg in the Daddy’s Homemovies and finding myself not fully loving them, I’m really glad to confirm that Instant Family is definitely not that.
Directed and co-written by Sean Anders, Instant Family is a comedy / drama based on the true story of the ups and downs faced by a couple who foster / adopt three children all at once.
Things were looking good for this movie within the first few minutes. Firstly, the editing. I really appreciate the fact that I didn’t find myself wishing I could fast forward any of the scenes. Second, the relationship between the central couple played by Wahlberg and Byrne. Last but not least, the dynamic and banter between Octavia Spencer and Tig Notaro’s characters is another definite key highlight.
I found myself laughing during Instant Family more than I expected to. An especially memorable moment being the scene at the dinner table with the pair of closed eyes. I was of course also moved by the beautiful moments of familial love and the truth of some of the experiences of children and teenagers in the foster care system.
Watch Instant Family because it’s good, very likely better than you expect and it’s definitely – as a fellow film lover predicted, more grounded than the Daddie’s Home films.
Instant Family is a new comedy starring Mark Wahlberg, Rose Byrne and Octavia Spencer.
Directed and co-written by Sean Anders, it’s the story of a couple dealing with the often humorous challenges that come with adopting three children at once…
I don’t know how much I’ll enjoy this, especially since I didn’t totally love Wahlberg’s Daddy’s Home movies. still I’m in because I appreciate him and I’m excited for the happy ending. I really want the happy ending!
Isabela Moner. Eve Harlow, Iliza Shlesinger, Tom Segura and Tig Notaro also star.
Mark Wahlberg, Iko Uwais, Lauren Cohan, and John Malkovich are the stars of new action / thriller Mile 22.
Directed by Peter Berg, Mile 22 is the story of an elite American intelligence officer and a top-secret tactical command unit whose job it is to smuggle a mysterious police officer with sensitive information out of the country…
I really want this to be the kind of America / Asia movie hit I’ve been waiting for. I’m most exited for the classic Wahlberg brand of charm and ‘badassery.’ And of course, the impressive Martial art skills of Iko Uwais.
This trailer is definitely longer than it needed to be but the visuals and dialogue are so very promising already… I know it’s a little early to say but I’m thinking that this could be my ‘trailer of the week’.
Ronda Rousey, Sala Baker and Terry Kinney also star.
All The Money In The World is the story of a left-wing paramilitary organization in Italy, that hatched a massive kidnapping plot in the 1970s. Directed by Ridley Scott; Christopher Plummer, Mark Wahlberg, Michelle Williams and Timothy Hutton star…
To save one’s grandson and let the world know that you negotiate with terrorists or sacrifice your grandson so that no one ever thinks that they can demand and receive a ransom from you ever again.
Whatever Mr. Getty does or doesn’t do, it should be very interesting to watch, especially with such a talented and super engaging cast.
The first Daddy’s Home (2015)movie starring Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell and Linda Cardelilni featured a ‘cool biological dad versus new and not so cool stepdad’ dynamic between Ferrell and Wahlberg. For the Sean Anders directed sequel, the same dynamic remains, except this time Ferrell and Wahlberg’s characters are the best of friends but their dads played by Mel Gibson and John Lithgow are not quite that…
The original movie was OK and featured some memorable scenes. I’ll be tuning in this time for much of the same and hopefully more. I already love the kiss between Lithgow and Ferrell’s characters.
The trailer for the Michael Bay directed fifth Transformers movie, Transformers – The Last Knight starring Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Anthony Hopkins and Stanley Tucci is finally here…
I loved the first Tranformers film; the one that starred Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox. The second instalment was so disappointing that I haven’t yet been able return to the franchise.
Maybe I’ll watch this because of the special effects and Anthony Hopkins – but really, I think this may be a movie most ideal for those who love big fiery explosions more than the average amount – which of course is absolutely fine.
This is how I answer the question of whether or not to watch the stepdad / biological dad comedy, Daddy’s Home. It stars Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell, a pair who have shown great onscreen chemistry in the past. For example, 2010’s The Other Guys.
Daddy’s Home won’t ask too much of you except that you sit down, relax, and accept a few laughs. Generally speaking, you’ll be ok as long as you don’t mind the absence of surprises plot-wise.
The best thing about the movie, for me is the onscreen chemistry and verbal sparring between the two lead actors. If you love Farrell and or Wahlberg, you’ll probably watch the movie regardless. So to that I say, enjoy and I’m excited for you about Daddy’s Home 2, release date November 2017.
