In a city of humanoid animals, a hustling theater impresario's attempt to save his theater with a singing competition becomes grander than he anticipates even as its finalists find that their lives will never be the same.
It's a jungle out there for Blu, Jewel and their three kids after they're hurtled from Rio de Janeiro to the wilds of the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit in, he goes beak-to-beak with the vengeful Nigel, and meets his father-in-law.
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
This isn't the only film that Tobey Maguire is the narrator/adult version of character. He did the same previously for the film Labor Day, where he played the narrator/adult son of Kate Winslet. See more »
In the dinner scene, the milk carton impossibly holds enough milk to spill over Tim's equally sized cup. See more »
Not as Bad as I Thought But Still Not the Best DreamWorks Film Out There
After I saw the trailers, I knew this would be the Rugrats/Baby Geniuses and Look Who's Talking movie from DreamWorks despite being based off a book, I went In expecting It to be average AND......I was pleasantly surprised by this movie.
It's not Trolls level of Unnecessary and way too hip and modern, the film plays like a Disney cartoon from the 50s and 60s, the way the animation looks, the setting of this movie, the music and the plot, It feels like a cartoon but turned Into a movie, with that said I actually liked the movie and what It offered.
The animation has that Storks look (despite the Idea being similar to that movie), It has a cute look to It, while It does have different styles when Tim goes Into his Imagination worlds where he's a pirate, explorer Etc, It makes It relate able and Interesting and even the moral (which I won't give away but I think anyone can guess what It Is) can relate to most kids who watch this movie, sure the movie makes no sense and It's very cartoon, but It does have a good moral.
The characters are pretty fun and well voice acted, Alec Baldwin Is great as the title character, the kid who voices Tim Is pretty great too, but the rest of the characters are pretty funny too.
But the movie does suffer from a simple but predicable plot, pretty obvious toilet, fart humor, It does have adult humor but It does comes off as obvious as well despite being funny.
So yeah, the movie's...an improvement from Trolls, It's on par with Home In the pretty good category, but It's not the best from DreamWorks, hopefully Captain Underpants will Improve from this movie.
I'm giving Boss Baby a 6/10.
