Instant Family Reviews
All the kids are great in the movie as well.
The film at its core has an extremely important message, a family is what you make it. I loved this film, Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne do a fantastic job as foster parents to sweet Juan, crazy Lita, and the stubborn Lizzie. I went into this expecting Daddy's Home Mark Wahlberg but was pleasantly surprised to find him slightly, only slightly, more serious in this role and Rose Byrne definitely did a bulk of the heavy lifting for the parents when it comes to versatility with emotions.
On the kid's side, Lizzie (Isabela Moner) did a fantastic job of portraying the teenage rebelliousness while also showing the emotional scarring that can come from being left to the system. This film is heavy while at the same time has the right amount of light to make it an uplifting watch.
I would definitely recommend this film to anyone, to really show the ups and downs of what it means to foster. I will definitely watch again.
