Anybody else seen this?

I love this sort of American comedy (think 'Bad Moms'/'Daddy's Home' etc..) anyway, but there's something extra and special about this one. It's hilarious, emotional and heartwarming without feeling forced.

I expected a lot worse/more stupid, but it exceeded my expectations and then some! Worth a watch!

Who could dislike a movie starring Mark Wahlberg, Rose Byrne, Margo Martindale AND Octavia Spencer?!

It was better than I expected too, I went to see it more on the strength of the lead cast and generally liking this type of movie rather than what was shown in the trailer itself. I didn’t think it was quite as good as those movies you mentioned Jonjo, but they’re all about a solid 8/10 for me. It was sweet and heartwarming but I didn’t think the laughs were quite as big.

Can’t wait to see this soon. Only just missing out on the UK #1 spot by less than £3,000.

This is a special special film. Much funnier than I thought but so real and powerful in its depiction of foster families (I went with someone who has experienced a lot of this growing up). Really brilliant film and I left feeling.... totally broody and strongly considering this sort of action in the future.

Me and my hubby are approved foster carers and we adopted our son when he was a baby, 5 years ago. From the point of view of the emotional impact, the movie was really great. It was so funny, and just well written. I liked the exaggerated support group (though it's actually not far from reality).

I believe the director is also a parent who adopted. Which I guess is the reason why this came off as so genuine, sincere and heartfelt wub.gif
