The multi-camera, scripted half-hour series features Tia Mowry-Hardrict as Stephanie, a former party girl who becomes a full-time stepmom to three kids when she marries the more traditional Charlie (Michael Boatman, Spin City). Stephanie manages to keep it all together using her own unique style, never losing her sense of fun, and with the help of her mother Maggie (Sheryl Lee Ralph, Moesha), she learns what being a mom really means.
It’s a cookie-cutter comedy that’s inoffensive, intermittently chuckle-worthy and totally predictable.New York Post Full Review
A warm, harmless, family-friendly show that offers a few sweetly amusing moments mixed in with the predictable twists. The kids are quite adorable, too.San Jose Mercury News/Contra Costa Times Full Review
Overall, Instant Mom is mild and unobjectionable.Variety Full Review
