The Boss Baby

PLOT:

DreamWorks Animation and the director of Madagascar invite you to meet a most unusual baby. He wears a suit, speaks with the voice and wit of Alec Baldwin, and stars in the animated comedy, DreamWorks’ The Boss Baby. The Boss Baby is a hilariously universal story about how a new baby’s arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator, a wildly imaginative 7 year old named Tim

What people are saying:

“The contrast between the helpless-infant stage of life and corporate-speak is funny but fairly high-concept for a kiddie movie, and the plot grows denser as it goes along and the baby and Tim reluctantly join forces to stop a conspiracy by which puppies would corner all the love in the world” 3 stars

“I’ve seen previews for animated films in the past and gotten the complete wrong impression from them before. That did not happen this time, as this movie looked boring and contrived, and it certainly was that. There’s some cute potty humor, and a few jokes from the alarm clock that made me smile, but otherwise this movie was simple, obvious, and boring. It was very difficult after the climax to sit through the rest of the film… which would be emotional if the movie had done it’s job of making you care about the characters. There’s very little to like here. I’d recommend this to children 4-6 years old? Maybe? ” 1 star

“I could have done without the kewpie-doll faces and oversized eyes, but for the most part and where it counts, gets its kids just right.” 3 stars

“This movie surprised me. I did not expect to like it very much. I thought it would just be a bunch of crude humor but it turned out that the story and the characters pulled me in, and I ended up caring about them very much. I enjoyed that the movie just got better as it went along and ended up being a movie with lots of heart! (the scene with the tons of plastic beads really got to me; it was so touching!) Don’t want to spoil it for those that have not seen the movie yet. Good story about family and love between siblings4 stars

“the juxtaposition between imagination and reality is brilliant, and the story strikes a great balance between hilarity and heartwarming. On the flip side, some elements are overly repeated (I’ll puke if they play blackbird one more time!), the chase & fight scenes are annoying, the story gets a bit complicated for a PG film (not to mention the plot-holes this creates), and there’s so much room to edit this down by a good 15 minutes.” 3 stars
