I had the privilege of attending the screening of Instructions Not Included in Miami last night. The movie is not only comedy, it has it all. Yes, it's funny but Eugenio made it so he didn't try to make you laugh, you just did. So many emotions that run through the audience watching it. You'll cry in some parts and immediately laugh. It was beautifully made. Since the beginning of the film to the end it holds your attention. Every character, every screen, everything just came together perfectly to create a film that leave you with a smile in your face and heart! ----Vanessa M.

*This movie is subtitled*
Instructions Not Included is a great, emotional movie depicting an amazing dad overcoming his fears to raise the daughter his one time fling abandoned.
I wasn't expecting the first half of the movie to be purely comedy. The 2nd half is more of a drama, but still offers up some funnies. Instructions Not Included is a bit rough around the edges, but the overall story more than makes up for it.
I had some small nitpicks such as the depiction of kids in a moving car without a seat belt and a few reality discrepancies. If you're bringing kids, there is quite a bit of sexual innuendo, some makeout scenes, and one particular character with a dirty mouth. He does drop an F bomb.
This movie is definitely worth a 2nd watch.
There is a scene during the credits.
If you like my reviews, add me as a fan. I'll add you back.

...and what a surprise! This was the most enjoyable movie I have seen in a while. Although a cliché, my wife and I laughed, cried, and saw life. I am not a Spanish speaker nor a tele novel fan...I just LOVED it.

To see at the theater. One of the most beautiful movie experience I have had for a very long time.
The you can feel the joy and the suspense is tense.
To do such a quality movie, I understand why it took him over 13 years to made it happen.
Budget was maybe an issue, but it gave him plenty of time to refine the story and bring it to perfection.
Us who think to really know most thing about life, will sit back and learn more from this movie than we could learn in our life.
Watch it and do not forget to send your remarks... Good or bad, it will help more person to make a decision to either go to see it or not.
