BOSS BABY

DIRECTOR: Tom McGrath
CAST: Voices of Alec Baldwin, Steve Buscemi, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow

Little Tim Templeton’s life has been one big adventure with his parents by his side to share in his over-active imagination. They did everything together and their family was complete…or so he thought, because there was another Templeton on the way – and he arrived in a taxi!

Boss Baby is a universal story about how a new baby's arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator – Tim.

Boss Baby, who wears a black suit and tie complete with a briefcase, steals all the love and attention. But Tim quickly realises there is something odd about his little brother – he can talk. When confronted, Boss Baby admits that he works for Baby Corp (where babies come from) and he is on a secret mission to save the survival of babies. 

Boss Baby said that the one thing people love more than babies is a puppy and Francis Francis from Puppy Co. is planning to reveal the “ultimate puppy” at a pet convention. Boss Baby’s job is to stop the launch from happening and then he would get a big promotion with his own office and personal potty. That would also mean that Boss Baby would leave the Templeton house for good and Tim would have his parents all to himself again…so they agree to work together to get what they want.

They encounter a few obstacles along the way and there is also a big surprise when the true identity of Francis is revealed.

The film is aimed at all ages and while there are a few humorous and enjoyable moments throughout the film, I found myself counting down the minutes to when the credits start rolling. My three-year-old daughter, however, enjoyed the movie and all she wants now is a little brother…

I suppose this is a good movie to show your kids that siblings can get along, despite their differences.
