The Boss Baby is a fun family movie released March 31, 2017, told from the point of view of Tim, a 7-year-old who loves to use his imagination. Everything is perfect for him until his baby brother shows up. He seems to be taking over the whole house in his miniature suit and tie; Tim can’t even get a special song before he goes to bed! Tim wonders if there is enough love in his parent’s heart for himself. Can Tim finally get rid of the Boss Baby, and have his parents for himself or will he suffer for the rest of his childhood, standing in the Boss Baby’s shadow? Find out in The Boss Baby.
Setting: This movie takes place in Tim and his family’s house located in a small town, but later in the movie the scene changes to the airport, where they board a plane that takes Tim and Boss Baby to the convention center in Las Vegas. Theres also a small part of the movie that takes place in Puppy Co., and Baby Corp.
Characters: Boss Baby, Tim, Mom, Dad, Eugene (The Babysitter), Wizzie (Tim’s Talking Alarm), Staci, The Triplets, Jimbo (The overweight Baby), and Big Boss Baby Lady
Pros for the Movie: This was a very splendid movie. I love the moral at the end. The graphics are great, and I love how they made the Boss Baby’s eyes all cute and shiny when the boss baby ran out of aging formula. You get very attached to the characters too!
Cons for the Movie: The only con is that at the end when Tim gets Lamb-Lamb (Tim’s stuffed animal) back from Boss Baby, the face looks really creepy because of the button eye. I know that in the beginning Boss Baby rips Lamb-Lamb, but I don’t remember anything about the eye falling off when Boss Baby ripped it, so I don’t feel that they had to make Lamb-Lamb look scary with its button eye because of that. I do like the tie they put on Lamb-Lamb though, it’s really cute!
Age Recommendation: Maybe 8 and up. It could be higher or lower though.
Overall Score: 9.5/10 – To be honest, Lamb-Lamb creeped me out at the end, so that’s why I’m giving that score!
I feel like The Boss Baby might have been like a Sequel to Storks, because in the beginning, when the babies were getting their diapers and pacifier, it looked a little bit like how the babies got ready for when they got delivered by Storks. Comment what you think, I would love to hear your thoughts!
