Just add chaos, laughter, awkwardness, mistakes, love.
When Pete and Ellie decide to start a family, they stumble into the world of foster care adoption. They hope to take in one small child but when they meet three siblings, including a rebellious 15 year old girl, they find themselves speeding from zero to three kids overnight.
Couldn’t even enjoy the movie with all the horrid cuss words in it. This is far from PG-13.
Im still crying
This movie is fun, entertaining, beautiful and absolutely heart wrenching. I think they did a wonderful job showing how crazy going through the foster system might be.
The Rotten Tomatoes Participation Award of 2019
Based on a true story - so we cannot tell the truth that the movie was just plain bad.
I am wondering if this was written by a 16-year-old who doesn't understand how foster, adoption, and the real world works.
The swearing makes this movie unwatchable for families. Does anyone really believe that counselors, teachers, and parents talk like that in professional situations? Would counselors allow outright bullying of other foster parents and kids?
Yeah, yeah. It's just a movie. But it's a sensitive subject with the potential to deliver a meaningful message. And it just missed the mark.
I wanted to like the movie. But the end left me wanting my money back.
Good family story
Not the most profound story but entertaining and with a well developed arc
