IN­STANT FAM­ILY

STAR­RING: Rose Byrne, Mark Wahlberg

WHO - - The List -

Par­ent­ing is hard, and mar­ried cou­ple Pete ( Wahlberg) and El­lie (Byrne), who flip houses for a liv­ing and haven’t got around to think­ing about kids, dive into the deep end when they de­cide to foster a teenager who has been in care. When they dis­cover she has two younger sib­lings, they go all in, be­com­ing a fam­ily of five overnight. The re­sults are equal parts hi­lar­i­ous (often in­ap­pro­pri­ately so) and tear-in­duc­ing, with In­stant Fam­ily ex­plor­ing a fam­ily con­struct we don’t see de­picted on­screen very often. Get­ting the most laughs is Byrne, who once again proves her comic ca­pa­bil­i­ties. (Out now)
