The movie, featuring Mexican actor Eugenio Derbez, raked in $10m, putting fifth alongside big-hitters like Lee Daniel’s The Butler and We’re The Millers, starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudekis. What’s more, these high-profile movies were shown in ten times more theatres, making Instructions Not Included’s performance even more admirable.

"Latinos are becoming more and more the population. In a way, you can count on them to be an anchor audience," said Charles Ramirez Berg professor at the University of Texas and author of Latino Images in Film. "It's comedy, drama. It's about family. It's about parenting children. And you are going to get the audience that can relate to that," Ramirez Berg added.

"Here is the hyper-grossing hit of Eugenio, earning more than three times per theater than Hollywood's Hot-List," tweeted Mexican actor Kuno Becker proudly. Becker is currently a cast member of Dallas. Derbez is a huge star in Mexico; his mannerisms and phrases are quoted nationwide.

The film follows Valentin (Derbez) as a mystery baby lands on his doorstep. He leaves his native Mexico for Los Angeles in search of the baby’s mother, but instead, settles down in America with his newfound daughter. “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,” said The Los Angeles Times in their review.
