Instructions not included

Single man left with baby – comedy ensues.  We’re checking out the new to Blu-ray comedy "Instructions Not Included" out now from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.  We review the movie and diaper changes below.


Instructions not included


   Title: "Instructions Not Included"

   Grade: 4

   Cast: Eugenio Derbez, Jessica Lindsey, Loreto Peralta

   Director: Eugenio Derbez

   Rating: PG-13

   Runtime: 115 minutes

   Release Company: Lionsgate Home Entertainment



The Flick: "Instructions Not Included" takes the "Three Men and a Baby" theme and infuses it with some slapstick comedy and very poignant drama to create a memorable foreign flick.  As lead lothario turned caring father and insane stuntman Valentin Bravo, Eugenio Derbez has just the right amount of pathos and vaudevillian prowess to make the film a winner.  (Not to mention he also directed and co-wrote this one!)  Plus his daughter, played by Loreto Peralta, is engaging enough to carry the cute kid weight.  Funny, sad and moving – all included.

Best Feature: The 'Commentary' track by Derbez is a thorough and thoughtful walk down memory lane.  (Though does switch from English to Spanish without notice!)

Best Hidden Gem: Daniel Raymont as opportunist Frank Ryan looks like a Latin Matt Stone.

Worth the Moola: More than a mindless comedy, "Instructions Not Included" captivates.
