Cineworld Unlimited members got to see heartwarming Mark Wahlberg comedy Instant Family in advance last night.
Wahlberg stars alongside Rose Byrne, portraying one half of a happily married couple whose decision to adopt three children has life-changing consequences. The movie reunites Wahlberg with Daddy's Home director Sean Anders, and has already proven a critical and box office success in the USA.
More importantly however, we wanted to know what Unlimited members made of it. We've rounded up a few of the responses, starting with this from Amanda who praises the film's mixture of laughs and tears.
Loved #InstantFamily tonight. The mix of funny and sad moments was great. Loved that there were laugh out loud moments and then at other times you could have heard a pin drop in the cinema. Would definitely recommend it. #CineworldUnlimited— Amanda Hughes (@AmandaJ_Hughes) January 24, 2019
Simon Tuck says the movie does an excellent job of grappling with a tricky subject in an audience-friendly way.
Wow. What a lovely gem of a movie. Yes you will laugh. Yes you will be moved. Addressed the issue of fostering really well. Yeah. Will recomend and see this again. @cineworld #CineworldUnlimited #InstantFamily— Simon Tuck (@simon_tuck) January 23, 2019
Charlotte Sometimes says the movie unashamedly hits the tear ducts.
'Instant Family' is the best family drama I've seen in ages. So heartfelt and very, very funny. I'm all the emotions right now can't recommend it enough! A total must-see.— Charlotte Sometimes (@sometimesmovies) January 23, 2019
Thanks for the #Unlimitedscreening @cineworld! pic.twitter.com/8mn9GDa47R
Declan McKinney says Wahlberg and Byrne are excellent but the show is stolen by a relative newcomer.
#InstantFamily was a lovely, heart-warming and equally hysterical film that had me laughing, crying and smiling the whole way through. Wahlberg and Byrne are on point and their chemistry is off the charts, Isabela Moner is gonna be the next big thing! #CineworldUnlimited— Declan Mckinney (DC Central) (@DeclanMckinney) January 23, 2019
Suzi says the strong performances extend to the supporting roles.
Had quite low expectations, but was very pleasantly surprised. I cried more than once and plenty of funny moments. Cast were great and I enjoyed how Tig Notaro and Octavia Spencer played off each other as the foster team. A solid 4/5— Suzi (@SouthamptonSuzi) January 24, 2019
And David Evans says the movie is an across-the-board success.
What a great movie. Wahlberg and Byrne were amazing together great chemistry. Kids were great to I was worried that all the best bits were in the trailer, but no, there was so much more. Laughter and tears a real feel good movie. Gonna watch it again. pic.twitter.com/1L9NMYJqZs— David Evans (@dhevans77) January 23, 2019
