I rarely write review, but after seeing the score of this movie, I haveto say : Damn it, it's a good movie, why do it have so many negativecritics? I just watched it yesterday with my friends and laughed my assoff the entire time of the movie. It's very creative, the joke is wellcrafted. Some scenes are pretty emotion too. If you have kids, bringthem to the cinema, they will absolutely love this. The animation iscute and funny. Some people say it's just another "Secret life of pets"movie. I admit "Secret life of pets" is bad, but the boss baby isdifferent, the plot sometimes makes no sense but who cares! It's amovie for kids and the main thing is it funny as hell. So ignore allthe haters, go check the movie yourself.

Dreamworks' The Boss Baby, is an extraordinary, fun and lightheartedanimated film based on an award-winning picture book by Marla Frazee.
7-year-old Tim (Miles Christopher Bakshi) had the perfect life and thefull attention of his parents until one day, a new arrival took it allaway and became the Boss of his family. Tim and Boss Baby face siblingrivalry, trying to both win the affection of their parents. Much toTim's surprise, the two bond when they join forces to uncover the evilplot of the CEO of Puppy Co. And in the midst of it all, Tim and hisnew brother Boss Baby (Alec Baldwin) learn the true meaning of the loveof family.
The Boss Baby is fabulously directed by Tom McGrath, who you mightrecognize from his work on all three Madagascar movies and Megamind. Hesays that the movie is partially an apology letter to his own brotherfor all the grief he put him in when they were young.
My favorite character is Boss Baby. Alec Baldwin voices this characterwith great panache. His witty personality mixed with a take-chargeattitude bursts through the screen. I feel that Baldwin's voice talentin this is one of the key reasons this movie shines.
My favorite scene is when Tim and Boss Baby work together to sneak intoPuppy Co. and attempt to steal the secret file. Watching a workinglarge scale replica of one of my favorite games when I was young (MouseTrap) was particularly fun. Also, there are many toys from the 70s and80s included which I enjoyed. Several times I found myself times tryingto find them in the scene. There are so many magical momentsthroughout. As an only child, it's funny that there are times the moviemade me want to have a brother and, other times, I'm happy to be anonly child.
The Boss Baby is an enjoyable film safe to keep you and your familythoroughly entertained. Director Tom McGrath states "I want this movieto draw you in and make you move to the edge of your seat, not pullaway from the screen" and I believe he achieved that goal. It is ratedPG for mild humor and I recommend it for ages 6 to 14, although thewhole family will enjoy it. I give this film 4.5 out of 5 stars. Itopens in theaters nationwide on March 31, 2017 so, go check it out.

I regularly watch classics, award season dramas and thrillers onoccasion. I wanted to watch an animated kids film for change, while thelast animated film I saw was Bolt. I naturally don't get the 'not aPixar film' argument about The Boss Baby. I enjoyed the filmthoroughly. I felt nostalgic about my own lost childhood and thepressure of being 'grown up' and 'hired'. It's target audience arelittle kids, who I believed were thoroughly enjoying it in the cinemawhere I had been. It was fun, imaginative and very very cute. I don'tunderstand why kids films have to face such a harsh criticism. Itreflects a common adult attitude to keep kids under their control. BossBaby is about the importance of a complete childhood, free from theconstraints, superficiality, hypocrisy and faulty preconceptions ofmodern day success- oriented adults.
'You read stories of cannibalism? No wonder why kids are so ruined' -Tim.
Seven-year-old Tim Templeton has always been a boy of an overactive imagination, and for the past seven years, life was all peaches for him, getting all the love and affection from his caring parents. However, life will never be the same and Tim won't be the centre of attention anymore as the arrival of an improbable new brother named Boss Baby, dressed in a black suit complete with a tie and a briefcase, will shortly rob him of all love, as he takes over the whole Templetons' house. Nevertheless, although this may be true, soon, Tim and the new Boss in a diaper will need to put differences aside and join forces, as a sneaky scheme involving the head of Puppy Co. threatens to tilt the balance of power towards their insidiously adorable furry antagonists, not to mention that the next Pet Convention is in only two days.. Brothers, hurry up.
