The Boss Baby Movie Review
Ever since I saw the preview for DreamWorks’ The Boss Baby, I knew that I had to see it when it came out. I recently had the chance to see it with my family. We all agreed that it was an adorable film that told a wonderful heartfelt story while treating us to the comical antics you would expect from the previews. The film takes a look at sibling rivalry and how bringing a new addition into the house can cause stress with the older sibling(s). It does take a wonderful twist at the end that will leave you wondering if they plan on making a sequel to this funny film.
About The Film
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. With a sly, heart-filled message about the importance of family, DreamWorks’ The Boss Baby is an authentic and broadly appealing original comedy for all ages.
The film stars the voices of Alec Baldwin (Boss Baby), Jimmy Kimmel (Tim’s Dad), Lisa Kudrow (Tim’s Mom), Tobey Maguire (Older Tim/Narrator) and Steve Buscemi (Francis E. Francis.)
If you have younger kids there are some chase scenes and “bad guys” but nothing that was too scary or dark. There is potty and body humor which was to be expected when dealing with babies. This did not overwhelm the film but instead as a parent I found it to be hilarious because we all have had those moments.
I fell in love with The Boss Baby and think it is worth seeing in theaters and will also be picking up a copy when it is available on DVD to own. It is perfect for kids of all ages as evidenced by our family group (13 – 73) who all enjoyed the film and highly recommend it.
