- An important part of what makes this movie work as well as it did, is the chemistry between Rose Byrne and Mark Wahlberg, as the couple who wants to be foster parents.
- Rose Byrne in particular has good comedic reactions to the different situations she faces.
- The other important part of what makes this movie entertaining, is to see how they interact with the three foster kids.
- Those foster kids are really good in their roles as well, from Julianna Gamiz as Lita, Gustavo Quiroz as Juan, and Isabela Moner as Lizzy.
- Isabela Moner continues to prove that she is one of the most promising young actresses right now.
- Great main cast, combined with a great supporting cast overall. With some highlights by Octavia Spencer, Tig Notaro, Margo Martindale, Iliza Shlesinger, and a few more others.
- The comedy bits are entertaining, and the drama bits are emotional. Enjoyable all around.
- Movie has a lot of heart, to the point where I truly appreciate how much of a feel good film it is.
- I admire that this movie is very forward about covering a lot of the pertinent aspects about fostering kids. Almost like it’s not bothering to hide the fact that this is blatantly advocating for people to consider adopting foster kids. I’m okay with that.
- This is exactly what you would expect from a movie about fostering kids. That’s not necessarily a bad thing.

- This is exactly what you would expect from a movie about fostering kids. That might be a bad thing for some people.
- Some familiar plot tropes and cliches show up here as expected.

- From Transformers: The Last Night, The Nut Job 2, Sicario: Day Of The Soldado, and soon Dora the Explorer, it seems Isabela Moner likes variety in her acting choices.
