The Boss Baby Review

Very Good

There isn't a lot of subtlety in this madcap animated comedy, which is more aimed at nostalgic adults than young kids who will miss the rapid-fire movie references. But it's also silly and busy, and cute enough to make everyone in the audience sigh a few times. And it's anchored by a terrific vocal performance from Alec Baldwin that channels his infantile Donald Trump impersonation to hilarious effect.

The story is told through the eyes of a creative 7-year-old named Tim (Tobey Maguire as the film's narrator, Miles Bakshi as the character), who has enjoyed growing up as the only child of his playful, loving parents (Lisa Kudrow and Jimmy Kimmel). Then a little baby brother (Alec Baldwin) arrives, and Tim discovers that he can walk and talk, and also that he's the CEO of Baby Corp, sent on a secret mission to spy on Puppyco, where Tim's parents work. Apparently, puppies are becoming more popular than babies, and now the Puppyco boss (Steve Buscemi) is preparing to launch a breed of puppy that will forever steal the love of parents from their children. In a panic, Tim teams up with the Boss Baby to get rid of him for good.

It's clear to grown-ups in the audience that all of this is happening in Tim's wildly imaginative head, which kind of eliminates any tension in the crazed action mayhem that follows. Younger viewers may find the premise itself rather baffling, but will enjoy the hyperactive pacing and snappy dialogue. The only problem with this is that it means that the movie remains resolutely superficial, touching on big issues like sibling rivalry and corporate greed without ever dealing with them. And it presents a baby as an aggressive invader, which may be how it sometimes feels to an older sibling, even if we know better.

The Boss Baby Trailer


What happens when a baby takes the top position? Seven-year-old Tim Templeton was doing just fine until his parents brought home his new baby brother, who seemed determined to attract as much attention as possible and steer their parents' sights away from poor Tim. Sibling rivalry is a natural thing, but Tim is exasperated by his mom and dad's blindness towards the baby, who happens to be constantly dressed in a business suit and carries a mini briefcase. It seemed inevitable that the baby would grow up to be a boss someday, though everyone expected him to actually grow up first. One day, Tim discovers that the baby can talk, though it's less 'goo goo ga ga' and more 'let's strike a deal'. As much as this news rocks Tim's world, he must team up with his bossy little brother when they discover that the CEO of Puppy Co., Francis E. Francis, wants to take over the world.

George Clooney Stars In One-Man 'E.R.' Reunion For Jimmy Kimmel


George Clooney Hugh Laurie Jimmy Kimmel

‘E.R.’ was one of the most popular TV shows of the ‘90s, and it enjoyed a thrilling reunion of its cast members on Tuesday night’s episode of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ on ABC. Only problem was, George Clooney was the only person to show up...

This wasn’t going to stop Kimmel though, as he explained to his guest Clooney and the audience that they’d be attempting to put together a brief skit despite the fact that everybody else was busy.

“This was kind of a last-minute thing, and we had some trouble getting the whole cast of ‘E.R.’ to come,” Kimmel said. “[Julianna Margulies] was filming ‘The Good Wife’, so she couldn’t make it. [Noah Wyle] wanted to be here, but guess he had a thing with his family, Taco Tuesday. Eric LaSalle had jury duty.”
