It’s our new favourite flick, with ALL the feels…

Hands up who fancies a little VIP movie experience to help shift those mid-January blues? Ladies we hear you, which is why we’ve gotten together with the lovely team at Paramount Pictures to offer 10 pairs of tickets to an exclusive VIP screening of new comedy drama Instant Family.

Inspired by real events from the life of writer & director Sean Anders (Daddy's Home, Daddy's Home 2), Instant Family tells the story of Ellie and Pete who decide to start a family and adopt through the foster-care system, only to find themselves raising three wild kids who have no interest in being parented.

Ellie and Pete are a successful couple who renovate and sell homes for a living. When they discuss starting a family, they cringe at the idea of being “those old parents” by the time their child graduated university and joke wouldn’t it just be easier to adopt a 5-year-old and pretend that they started the process 5 years earlier. When they start to look into adoption though, they realise that they can do a lot of good by adopting. They decide to go for it by fostering and then adopting a young boy or girl.

Unexpectedly the child they connect best with is a teenager. More than that – she has two younger siblings!! Despite some reservations, Ellie and Pete foster all three kids. As they welcome the tight-knit siblings into their lives, Ellie and Pete find out through laughter and through tears what being a family is all about.

We have 10 pairs of tickets up for grabs to a VIP screening of Instant Family on Saturday 26th January at 1pm*, at an exclusive secret London location. Hosted by C4’s ‘Grizzly Bear’ Ant Middleton and in association with the National Fostering Agency, this exclusive presentation and drinks reception is the perfect way to spend a Saturday. Simply click here and the first ten people to sign up will win a pair of tickets each.

We love this movie and we think you will too. To find screenings and book tickets visit for more.

Instant Family will be released into UK cinemas on February 14th 2019
