This isn't a great movie, but it's a decent one. It's thin and clichéd, but it's sweet and fun.

I can see The Boss Baby working as an animated short, similar to the opening of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, but there just isn't enough meat on the bones for a feature film.

The Boss Baby is the loaded diaper of animated comedies

Like my parenting methods, this is several great ideas that collapse into a bit of a mess when put into practice. Still, it's a useful watch for older siblings who may well identify with 7 year old Tim, feeling pushed out when his baby brother arrives.

If you enjoy Baldwin's schtick, then Boss Baby should work for you regardless of your age. If not, well at least your children will have a good time.

One has to really scrabble through the disparate parts to find most of the value, while the kids (as always) will really love the usual tricks.

Forgettable toddler fodder film from a once creative animated studio that didn't only appeal to younger viewers.

I have a little brother in real life, so this film should have grabbed my heartstrings and given them a good wring. But it didn't.

It's certainly good for a giggle. There's absolutely nothing wrong with a little juvenile humor every now and then.

Has the best "where babies come from" gag in a while, too.

Gorgeously animated in typically pin-sharp DreamWorks style, Tom McGrath keeps the laughs coming, with jokes that should appeal across the age range. Also contains puppies.

The Boss Baby began with a lot of promise, like most babies. As usual, though, time passed and the baby got annoying.

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.
