The Boss Baby is a 2017 animation starring Alec Baldwin, Steve Buscemi, Jimmy Kimmel and Lisa Kudrow. It is directed by Tom McGrath, mostly known for Madagascar (2005). A synopsis reads: “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.
The Boss Baby is funny and heartwarming. It has plenty of quality laugh-out-loud moments, and has humor that will appeal to everyone, not just kids. There were also some very touching moments.. especially the boy’s bedtime routine and the relationship he develops with the boss baby. The intro scene with the baby deliveries is very cute and funny. I must say that in this film the babies seem much cuter than in real life.
Besides the conflict of the two brothers fighting for the attention of their parents, there is a separate plot line about Francis Francis trying to get people to love more puppies instead of babies-it involves creating a new breed of puppy that never grows up. The Boss baby character is hilarious. I loved the reflections on parenthood, feeding the baby, dummy sucking, milk bottles, diapers (nappies), vomit, lack of sleep, etc
The Boss Baby is an entertaining spectacle that is fun, funny, and clever at many points. This movie is certainly adorable and is the perfect family film (for all ages) . The story is simplistic and silly, and doesn’t have as much magic as a Disney film, but it’s nice to have a unique, original story that doesn’t involve making a political ordeal out of it. My personal rating for this film is 7.5 out of 10.
The Boss Baby is out in cinemas everywhere !
