There isn't a lot of subtlety in this madcap animated comedy... But it's also silly and busy, and cute enough to make everyone in the audience sigh a few times. And it's anchored by a terrific vocal performance from Alec Baldwin.
It's huge fun, beautifully animated, and writer Michael McCullers, whose credits include a couple of the Austin Powers movies, takes the opportunity to mine not just the rich seam of baby jokes, but an even richer seam of business jokes.
Boss Baby does have some nice moments, and it manages to draw some laughs. Things eventually work around to that accepting-a-sibling big picture, which is nice. But Boss Baby is a step down from the better animation efforts out there.
