August 30, 2018
Forgettable toddler fodder film from a once creative animated studio that didn't only appeal to younger viewers.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

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.
April 23, 2018
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.

In the plots of children's films, finding an original idea is already a reason for applause... [Full review in Spanish]

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10

The Boss Baby is a poop-filled diaper, just one that doesn't stink up the whole house.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

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.
Full Review | Original Score: C-

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Basically, the only people to whom The Boss Baby appeals are children young enough to still be entertained by jingling keys.
October 11, 2017
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

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]
September 6, 2017
The film has a surprisingly bold low-fi approach to backgrounds and character modeling.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
September 1, 2017
Even at its bumpiest the movie's brisk pacing and surprising slapstick gags make this a good time at the movies.
Full Review | Original Score: B

The admirable animation is by DreamWorks Animation. The Boss Baby dandily delights kiddo's and adulties alike.
August 10, 2017
A funny premise and Alec Baldwin aren't enough to save this wet blanket of a kids' movie.
