Instant Family is the gold quality comedy film of the year.

Following the success of Mark Wahlberg’s previous film successes including, Daddy’s Home and Ted, Wahlberg returns to the screen as Pete an adoptive father. Joining him is Rose Byrne (Bad Neighbours and Bridesmaids) as his wife Ellie.

From the trailer, it is clear to see that the film is a roller-coaster ride of emotion as the pair stumble into the world of adoption and end up welcoming three siblings into their lives including a 15-year-old adoptive daughter.

The trailer reveals that the film will show the battle as Pete and Ellie come to terms with their new-found parenthood and tackle the challenges that accompany being part of an Instant Family.

The combination of these two comedy legends creates the impression that Instant Family will be exceptionally funny and a great family film.

Instant Family is inspired by the true story of the life of writer/director Sean Anders and also stars Octavia Spencer, Tig Notaro and Margo Martindale.

You can see Instant Family in cinemas now, distributed by Paramount and rated a 12A.
