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.
70
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.
63
The film's counterintuitive success is largely due to Derbez, who demonstrates why he is beloved, both south and north of the border.
50
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.
40
Instructions Not Included is a sporadically amusing but unduly protracted dramedy that slowly - very slowly - devolves into a shameless tearjerker during its third act.
