Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Instant Family probably shouldn’t work. It’s predicable (you know exactly where it’s going from the start), sporadically funny and relies heavily on you liking Marky Mark’s jittery charm. Yet despite all this the film ends up being an enjoyable, time passing romp. That’s more than partly due to the cast who deliver admirably (yup even Marky Mark), with particular notes going to Isabela Moner, Octavia Spencer & Margo Martindale’s who all deliver stand out performances. Look it’s not breaking any new ground but it passed the time and made me chuckle more than a few times.
