  • The ending of the movie is a real grabber, the sort of thing that lifts and improves a tediously long and otherwise mediocre film and tricks you into thinking it was better than it really was as you leave the theater. show more

  • Some of the comic bits are a little too broad and silly, but Derbez, in his feature debut, makes Instructions Not Included a balancing act more successful than it should be. show more

  • There's a lot of movie here with unexpected developments, held together by the irresistible chemistry between Derbez and his adorable pint-sized co-star. show more

    My group of friends and I went to see Instructions Not Included and it left us in tears. I went out and bought it as soon as it hit the shelves. We all did. I very much enjoyed the movie. I would recommend this movie to anyone. It was in Spanish but had subtitles for easy following.

    Una buena pelicula, recomendada para toda la familia. Lo disfrutamos mucho. Van a reir, sorprenderse y encantarse con algunas escenas. Al final un buen mensaje para todos.
