This movie surprised me, in all good ways. It was not what I was expecting based on the previews. But it was so much better than that!
It featured the unreliable narration of an overly imaginative child as he coped with gaining a younger brother. The writers definitely tapped into the imagination of children and how their imaginations worked. I could definitely relate to the main character, as he saw the world the same way I did as a child. The movie was funny, poignant, and sweet. I would highly recommend it.
Absolutely loved this film! Just saw a special $1 showing Aug 7 2018 in San Diego, CA. Rated it 7of5stars! Very funny moments and *nuances* throughout, the joy of family and having a brother, childhood imagination, and a clever plot/backstory to boot! Great for kids and parents. Very young kids under 6 probably won't get it. Highly recommended. I was even crying a lot happily toward and at the end. Aww....
This was really nice movie. It was really funny and it clearly shows the struggles of having a new baby brother or sister. The thing I liked most about the movie was the fact that there was a completely different world of babies. That was hilarious! In this movie, seven year old Tim finds out that he is getting a baby brother. What he didn't expect was the baby to come in a taxi with a suit on and with a briefcase in his hand! Soon, the baby explains where he comes from, why he is here, and what Tim can do to help him, and get rid of him for good, so that Tim can happily live with his mom and dad as a family of three once again. Tim agrees to help the adorable baby. My favourite part in the movie is the beginning, when it shows how babies come into the world. The fictional process was very fun to watch. It also shows how ticklish kids enter into a world with a loving family, whereas non ticklish babies work in a place called "Baby Corp". The story was unique and was pretty interesting and funny. The only parts I found boring were when Tim starts imagining random things. Those parts didn't really go well with the story. Apart from that, I really enjoyed watching this movie and I would definetely recommend watching this movie. Rating- 4/5 @Vanilla of the Teen Review Board at Hamilton Public Library
Boss Baby by Marla Frazee is a very enjoyable movie. The best part about the movie is that it is suitable for anyone to watch. This movie brings back so many memories from my childhood, making most of the movie very relatable. This is a very clever movie due to the enormous amount of imagination and creativity put into the context. I also adore how they managed to put in various important lessons in such an entertaining way. The most obvious lesson is probably how you can accomplish so many things with teamwork, but the main one is the importance of family. Boss Baby is a funny movie and has an impressive twist to it.

The movie “Boss Baby” is a decent Disney movie with a very horrible theme. The animation of “Boss Baby” is alright and is very similar to some animations of other Disney movies. Although the animation of this movie was alright, I personally thought that the heads of the children were abnormally huge compared to their bodies. “Boss Baby” has a really childish and weird plot with a baby and a normal child becoming more like brothers. The movie is basically about a baby who works and a child who found out this baby’s Secret and now have come really close to each other. The ending of this movie was perhaps the best thing in the movie, due to the fact that the child and the baby do in fact become brothers and are together once again. The emotion and which this movie emits is not really intense although this movie basically includes sadness, hope and joy. I believe that this movie is enjoyable for all ages, after all, it is a Disney movie. Anyone who is a big fan of Disney movies has probably watched “Boss Baby”. Rating 3.5/5

Clever and took a plot twist that I was not expecting. As an adult viewer, it was cute, clever and offered enough complexity to keep me interested. I enjoyed the concept of babies fighting for their 'market share'. Even better would have been a battle between the babies and cell phones!
Not what I was expecting but a unique story that's both sweet and funny. I love Alec Baldwin and his dry humor is a perfect fit for this character.
Not as good as I was expecting. Fast forwarded. A good movie for kids though.
I'm not too sure who this movie is for.
Alec Baldwin's performance is a callback to his previous roles as managers (most notably Glengarry Glen Ross), so that's a nod adults would get, but there's plenty enough butts and snappy slapstick that would grab kids' attention. I wasn't a big fan of either.
Cuter and more worthwhile than I thought it would be. I find that there is a plethora of animated features that are being thrown at the audience and most of them just feel like poor excuses for a money grab. Glad that this movie was not the case.
It was a pretty decent movie. The animation quality was good, the characters were decent (though their feelings/loyalties kind of flip-flop too easily), and the humour was alright as in, not bad, but not great... slightly above satisfactory though. The plot was different than I expected: I thought the movie was going to be about an inexplicably intelligent baby... turns out, he's just part of a race of babies that are less ticklish than normal from the baby factory sent into a baby management position. Good to watch with the kids, not super exciting for adults though.
I watched this three times on the loan : to ensure I give the most sincere critique everyone should watch this for escapism. For all of those who were from a big family and those who born in the "perfect triangle" like the movie mentions; also to prepare you for having kids or going to hang out with someone's unforsaken kids. This is your film.
These most enjoyable scenes are the playdate with the "swat" theme song....wowwww, the pacifier you got to watch; and then the babies to the rescue. Funny it sure shines a light on the man child politician...no erase that image.....enjoy with your favorite comfort toy while viewing; I had a few cookies and lollipops .
I couldn't believe how much I laughed--great for those who are young and young at heart.
Interesting , innovative ideas movie with a great message for children and everyone in this matter : there is enough Love for everyone and we belong to a great family. Well done animation movie.
The creative team at DreamWorks Animation has done it again with a thoughtful and funny film with a message that is universal, no matter of what age is sucking on the soother. It was better than i had expected, due to the trailer, as i could not get my mind around a baby in as suit etc., at least not until i saw the film.
Cleverly done with the ultimate message that "there is enough love to go around."
Recommended for young and the older children in your family. Some parts do get a little silly, but how can you say something is wrong, when it has imagination and creative license.
The bonus material have eight short 2 -3 minute pieces and one eight minute piece with the director and one other, adding their take on the out-takes! Well worth the watch and stay until the end of the credits.
Recommended for the overall message alone, but the animation and story is top notch.
NOT, I repeat NOT hilarious or even laugh out loud funny. This movie did absolutely nothing for me or the audience. It is surprisingly unfunny in far too many ways! I would NOT recommend this movie to anyone. I would like to have back the time I wasted watching it!
BEST MOVIE EVER! it took a really long time to get it but I got it and when I had to give it back I got so sad! but now it is on Netflix!!! yay! I can watch it all I want! so stop waiting and go to Netflix to watch it for free! no waiting, no fees, you can watch it ten times or more! so go watch boss baby now, the best movie I have ever seen!
Great pick for family movie night!
Better than I expected. Some of it gets too silly and some of the comments will be over the heads of kids, but that helps the parents enjoy it.
I was not expecting The Boss Baby to be such a good movie! It was funny, and heart-warming and even made my eyes well up at one point. It's a beautiful family movie. At first, i
Probably my second favourite kids movie since Finding Nemo. This is a must see for kids and parents alike. Great graphics. I laughed, I cried, great movie!
This is an absolutely adorable movie. I have two girls ages 2 and 4, they both watched this movie over and over again. Tim, the older boy in the movie, is very imaginative so some of the scenes are kind of scary disturbing. But the girls did not seem bothered. This is a must see, and a great way to be appreciative of siblings.
The Boss Baby movie was fun to watch - it's an animation movie for kids of any age, actually because there is no bad words or anything else bad. If I would rate the movie out of 10 I would choose 9 out of 10 because I really liked everything in it - the beginning and the ending were amazing! I liked how the kid in the end started to help the little man even though he hated him in the beginning and wanted him to leave because he took everything from him. The movie is actually really good and the ending is amazing.

Laughs when the babies get together. Choice of Alec Baldwin as the boss baby voice is funny in itself. Extras are great for adults.
