There aren’t a lot of major studio comedies based on real-life events, but this one is. Writer and director Sean Anders parlayed his own experiences for Instant Family starring Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne.
When Pete (Wahlberg) and Ellie (Byrne) decide to start a family, they stumble into the world of foster care adoption. They hope to take in one small child but when they meet three siblings, including a rebellious 15 year old girl (Isabela Moner), they find themselves speeding from zero to three kids overnight. Now, Pete and Ellie must hilariously try to learn the ropes of instant parenthood in the hopes of becoming a family.
Octavia Spencer, Tig Notaro and Margo Martindale also star. Instant Family arrives November 16. Check out the trailer below.
