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.

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]

Finally in the DreamWorks's department there's a brilliant starting idea and a good script for a film. [Full review in Spanish]

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.

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.

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]
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 12, 2017
A droning, nonsensical excuse for family fare that even small kids might eventually grow tired of.
April 10, 2017
Children won't know why their parents are laughing half the time, but everyone will find something to enjoy.

Best of all, for a film about a protagonist in nappies, is the welcome absence of poop jokes.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
April 9, 2017
The jokes are decidedly one-note, but still, I admit: I laughed.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 9, 2017
Aimed at adults more than kids, this animated feature is only intermittently funny, skewering sibling rivalry.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
April 8, 2017
An absolutely standard-issue doody-joke-and-pop-culture-reference effort from the folks at Dreamworks, of roughly the same trenchant wit and political insight of their many, many 'Shrek' and 'Madagascar' movies.
April 8, 2017
The main character isn't really a baby. And this really isn't a comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
April 7, 2017
Silly, fast and sufficiently fun,..a snappy, colourful animation distraction intended to go in one eye and out the other.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
