Instant Family Home Video Announcement

“Instant Family” is Heading Home

Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne make an amazing on-screen couple. When they decide to start a family and enter the world of adoption, they begin to realize that they might have bitten off a little more than they can chew. But real life stress aside, Instant Family, while not revolutionary, is a cute, fun, and entertaining comedy that lets parents laugh at their fears, and kids enjoy the chaos.

The film, which follows a couple as they discover that their perfect adoptive child comes with two siblings, tackles all the humor and feelings that come from an instant family. Bearing a family-friendly PG-13 rating, Wahlberg and Byrne create a smart family-friendly environment, one that proves perfect for a Friday night in with the whole clan.

The Blu-Ray release includes over an hour of special features, not limited to a gag reel, a commentary, and a plethora of bonus features. But what holds supreme here is the film itself. Wahlberg and Byrne are, per usual, top notch, giving parents a dysfunction family in which to root for.

Instant Family is available on Blu-Ray/DVD on March 5. Those who can’t wait that long can access the comedy during its digital window beginning February 19.

About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
