Movie Review: ‘The Boss Baby’ Is A Hilarious Film For The Whole Family

Review by Monique Thompson

A suit-wearing briefcase-carrying baby pairs up with his seven-year old brother to stop the dastardly plot of the CEO of Puppy Co.

Dreamworks’ animated comedy, The Boss Baby, is a hilarious film for the entire family! The film is told from the point-of-view of 7-year old Tim Templeton (Tobey Maguire) as he must now share his mom and dad with the families newest member, the Boss Baby (Alec Baldwin). When his new brother arrives, Tim immediately becomes suspicious of the Boss Baby and the sibling rivalry between the two is formed instantly.

When Tim realizes the Boss Baby has a huge agenda in front of him, the two have no choice but to put their differences aside. Tim learns that his new brother is actually a spy on a secret mission to stop the puppies over at Puppy Co. Puppy Co. believes that puppies and their adorableness replaces the need for babies and Boss Baby just isn’t having that.

Besides being absolutely adorable, The Boss Baby is quite appealing and is definitely relatable – diving into the mind of a child in a similar way as Inside Out. Tim experiences the emotions of anxiety coupled with fear once he’s hit with the news of no longer being the “baby” of the family, better yet no longer being the only child period. Many kiddos experience that feeling and and even parents trying to adapt to now sharing the love and attention.

Don’t fret, of course things aren’t all serious and emotionally charged. The Boss Baby has plenty of jokes and comedic elements that make this a fun experience for both the kids and parents and was surprisingly better than expected.

In theaters April 30th.
