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

Great Movie
10 April 2017 | by imcooperthebossSee all my reviews

I don't understand how this movie got so many negative reviews. I went and saw this yesterday and honestly, its one of the best movies I have EVER seen. The plot is funny and progresses intently while the characters develop and come together in common interest. This movie is absolutely hilarious and also heart warming. I 10/10 recommend this
