Storyline

Seven-year-old Tim Templeton has always had an overactive imagination--and for the past seven years--life has been all peaches for him, getting all the love and affection from his caring parents. However, after the arrival of Boss Baby, an unexpected new brother dressed in a black suit complete with a tie and a briefcase, Tim won't be the centre of attention anymore, as the powerful sibling takes over the whole house, robbing him of all care, little by little. But, soon, Tim and the new Boss in a diaper will need to put differences aside and join forces, as a sneaky scheme involving the head of Puppy Co. threatens to tilt the balance of power towards their insidiously adorable furry antagonists, not to mention that the next Pet Convention is only in two days. Brothers, hurry up. Written by Nick Riganas

Goofs

(at about 7 minutes) When Tim watches Boss Baby exit the car, Tim is wearing a top with the digits '01' imprinted. However, when he gets down the stairs, the digits change to '02'. The filmmakers did this to suggest that Tim was number one in his parents' hearts. The number changed the moment Boss Baby walked in the door, suggesting that the baby was the new number one and Tim was second. See more »

Awesome movie!!!
25 March 2017 | by noahbandersenSee all my reviews

The Boss Baby is an excellent movie for kids and a great movie for families too. When I saw the trailer I REALLY wanted to see the movie and I felt like the happiest person on Earth when I saw it. The movie has funny characters, babies, and more things that would make anyone laugh. Most of all, I enjoyed the movie because of the relationships and jokes. The Boss Baby is sure to make brothers and sisters get along.
