Story: Accidental Family starts when genealogist Olivia Strauss (Redmond) is trying to inform the Bailey family of a long-lost relative.

Verdict on Accidental Family
Accidental Family is a comedy that follows a lonely woman who has never had family, who is accidentally welcomed into a family. Feeling welcomed, she doesn’t tell the family the truth and gets caught up in being accepted for once. Only she knows the truth will come back to haunt her, as she tries to reveal the truth.
In a story that is told from an Angel’s point of view, it shows how people might not always understand their place in life. They might find themselves feeling alone without understanding that friends become family. This goes in a fun direction, one we have seen before and one that works very well for the comedy genre.
Kinsey Leigh Redmond is fun in the leading role. She brings a calamity style to her character, as well as the charm needed for her character. This ends up being a fun comedy that gets the laughs when needed and the serious side when needed too.
Final Thoughts – Accidental Family is a fun, enjoyable comedy.
