August 10, 2017
A funny premise and Alec Baldwin aren't enough to save this wet blanket of a kids' movie.
August 5, 2017
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.

May 30, 2017
The Boss Baby is a fun and refreshing animated film that feels like an homage to classic early morning cartoons.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
May 26, 2017
The Boss Baby becomes more and more interminable in the buildup to its ineffective (and predictably melodramatic) final stretch...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

It seems that none of the filmmakers stopped to think on what they were doing. Yes, it's flashy and dynamic, maybe it works to keep children very young. [Full review in Spanish]

A surprisingly imaginative animated movie.
April 20, 2017
A highly recommended movie, perfect to for the weekend. [Full review in Spanish]

Despite the fact that it's heading towards a conciliatory end, the way in which it measures and calculates its steps to it, is a pleasant surprise. [Full review in Spanish]
April 17, 2017
Finally in the DreamWorks's department there's a brilliant starting idea and a good script for a film. [Full review in Spanish]
April 17, 2017
Not a lot to recommend ... unless you find the idea of a baby dressed as a business executive continuously hilarious for an hour and a half.

April 14, 2017
The Boss Baby is a funny, clever take on sibling rivalry that should appeal both to children -- especially those who, we can be thankful, are removed from politics -- and their parents.
April 14, 2017
The smartly written The Boss Baby lightly takes on commercialism while delivering a variety of witty gags that sound charmingly smug coming from Alec Baldwin's mouth.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
April 13, 2017
Very young audience members should enjoy the surfeit of fart and bum jokes, but unless you're a seriously clucky grown-up, guardians will struggle to find much to carry them through.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

The Boss Baby is the surreal, nightmarish creation of someone who has recently come off a high dose of hospital-grade painkillers.
April 12, 2017
The Boss Baby is funny, and we are also grateful that it's not the typical low-quality animated film. [Full review in Spanish]
