Loved it but because of the rating decided to watch with kids under 11 present! Wish I had known there was loads of vulgar language and sexual content or language in this movie. Should definitely have a higher rating. Besides for that, it was great and loved every minute!
I try to see all of Wahlburg movies and this did not disappoint. It is a great story, well written and produced. It is touching and I enjoyed every bit of it.
Full of excessive swearing,inappropriate sexual language,many examples of children showing disrespect to adults. This movie had great potential but disappointing because of above comments
I was told this was a great movie. I was told after I had asked that it was safe for families. I was told you’ll all enjoy this. What the *eck? This is rated PG and in my day there was a few potty jokes, occasional s bomb but no f words. And no, we don’t lead sheltered lives. I just want my family to not have to hear those words outside of school... let alone pay money for someone to say them to me. The movie could have been excellent, the premise wonderful, the family dynamic spot on. I just couldn’t get over my youngest giving me looks with every bad word. Does it put me off being a foster parent? No. Would my foster kids be aloud to swear? Under house rules, they learn not to in the house and hopefully this spills over into other aspects of their lives. Hopefully you will still enjoy this film and think about becoming a foster parent. It can be very rewarding and can lead to adoption. So instead of watching this, go to instantfamily.org to learn more.
Best movie ever!
This is my favourite movie
