What the Critics say
Ilan Preskovsky It doesn’t matter how preposterous or obvious or obnoxious certain elements of Instant Family may be, Rose Byrne always makes sure that it’s worth watching.
Tomatometer Instant Family may not quite capture the complexity of real-life adoption, but fittingly for the unconditional bond it honors, this flawed yet well-intentioned dramedy is ultimately worth the investment.
