Of course many a good idea in Hollywood falters before the final reel. But this latest DreamWorks animation is more comforting than a warm bottle of baby milk.

A very cute and charming film with an inspired take on sibling rivalry that will prove useful for parents informing their only child they're about to have some company.

The Boss Baby is a poop-filled diaper, just one that doesn't stink up the whole house.

Despite all the good is posits, The Boss Baby can never escape looking like a fake movie inside a real one - and altogether feeling like a redundancy.

Give it a shot, the storytelling isn't strong enough to make you weep like a baby, but it will occasionally make you giggle like one.

Basically, the only people to whom The Boss Baby appeals are children young enough to still be entertained by jingling keys.

This is one of the most contrived and complicated children's cartoons you'll see all year. But it's colourful and well animated, modestly insightful about sibling rivalry, and babies and parenthood are reliable sources of fun.

There comes a point where it never falls below the minimum required as a entertainment, but it's a pity that it's satisfied with that. [Full review in Spanish]

Even at its bumpiest the movie's brisk pacing and surprising slapstick gags make this a good time at the movies.

The admirable animation is by DreamWorks Animation. The Boss Baby dandily delights kiddo's and adulties alike.

A funny premise and Alec Baldwin aren't enough to save this wet blanket of a kids' movie.

It becomes less interesting as it grows more convoluted.

Dark matters in a children's story, like the Grimm's Fairy Tales that Tim reads to Boss Baby at night, render the moral too packaged and slick to be truly accepted, as if the true monster lay in wait on the next page.

Fortunately everything is softened by a very intelligent sense of humor that knows how to make that premise a kind of evil mission of megalomaniac villain from the James Bond saga. [Full review in Spanish]

As the story transitions from being about sibling adversaries to being about sibling allies, it suggests that happiness lies more in sharing our blessings than in protecting our fair share of them.

The Boss Baby is a bun needing more time in the oven, some rethinking of what sort of animated comedy it wishes to be.

This DreamWorks cartoon about a baby visualised as a suit-wearing executive big shot has bright ideas and slick bits of action, but the more I think about what its concept offers children, the more doubtful I am.
