The Boss Baby (Review)



As cute as it gets, this one may give a lot of “awh” moments, but only a handful of funny things to remember. A little rushed, a little weird at some points, but also fun for the kids and very colorful. It’s not your movie if you’re an action seeker or a comedy lover, as this movie’s jokes may prove to be a little bit underwhelming.


It goes so fast, we don’t even get to grasp the taste of the family’s struggles or daily happiness for a while. Instead, everything is a bit rushed, as if they were so desperate to get into the plot, no time to savor the loveliness of this family before the baby arrives. The villain’s plans may be deemed so weird, you might just get caught saying in your head: “Really? A forever dog?”


The babies in this film are cute and adorable and how they are ‘distributed’ into families or management is a great message to deliver, even kids are industrialized these days. When the Boss Baby and Tim begin their duel, assisted by the other babies, a fun sequence starts, with some funny moments on their way. Same happens when these two team up to achieve their goals: the baby saves the company he’s working for and Tim gets all the attention from his parents back.
The cast plays a big part here, giving life to these peculiar and cartoony characters, with the voice of Alec Baldwin, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow and Steve Buscemi. They sure make the movie funnier than how it really is.

Due to the points explained above, I rate this movie with a 6.5/10. It may be fun for kids if you’re a parent, although Inside Out may be a better option. If you don’t have children, I’m sure you’ll find better alternatives out there to pick.

I'm an actor, cinematographer and editor. I enjoy writing scripts and taking these stories to the big screen. I usually compose music for my films or by request. Currently have a blog on YouTube to share some laughs with the audience. There's nothing more beautiful than to share someone's world with an audience on the big screen, and nothing more fulfilling than to be able to bring a character to life. The secret is how you tell the story.
