Storyline

Seven-year-old Tim Templeton has always been a boy of an overactive imagination, and for the past seven years, life was all peaches for him, getting all the love and affection from his caring parents. However, life will never be the same and Tim won't be the centre of attention anymore as the arrival of an improbable new brother named Boss Baby, dressed in a black suit complete with a tie and a briefcase, will shortly rob him of all love, as he takes over the whole Templetons' house. Nevertheless, although this may be true, 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 in only two days.. Brothers, hurry up. Written by Nick Riganas

A perfect film for young kids who don't get the idea of 'success' imposed by the adults.
31 March 2017 | by (Bangalore, India) – See all my reviews

I regularly watch classics, award season dramas and thrillers on occasion. I wanted to watch an animated kids film for change, while the last animated film I saw was Bolt. I naturally don't get the 'not a Pixar film' argument about The Boss Baby. I enjoyed the film thoroughly. I felt nostalgic about my own lost childhood and the pressure of being 'grown up' and 'hired'. It's target audience are little kids, who I believed were thoroughly enjoying it in the cinema where I had been. It was fun, imaginative and very very cute. I don't understand why kids films have to face such a harsh criticism. It reflects a common adult attitude to keep kids under their control. Boss Baby is about the importance of a complete childhood, free from the constraints, superficiality, hypocrisy and faulty preconceptions of modern day success- oriented adults.

'You read stories of cannibalism? No wonder why kids are so ruined' - Tim.
