April 3, 2017
The Boss Baby was never interesting or fun enough to keep my attention, and I just enjoyed sporadic moments of frenzy, or some reference to past work by Baldwin ("Cookies are for closers"). [Full review in Spanish]

The Boss Baby does deliver laughs, but it is also trying to deliver more than its premise can really bear.
March 31, 2017
The Boss Baby never stops feeling like a feature-length film that should have been a 10-minute short at best.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.8/10

Sadly, this breathtakingly ludicrous premise is undermined by the film's insultingly obvious lessons about the virtues of teamwork.

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.

March 29, 2017
An animated film about puppies, babies and sibling rivalry, with the genius comic timing of Alec Baldwin -- on paper it sounds like a sure thing, but it's never as good as the sum of its parts.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
March 29, 2017
The overfull inbox of business jokes falls spectacularly flat when viewed in our current national climate, and seem completely insane in a movie for children.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.7/10
March 31, 2017
It occasionally feels more like a brand experience than an actual movie.
Full Review | Original Score: C
April 7, 2017
The Boss Baby is a full-length version of a parody trailer straight out of Tropic Thunder.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

The Boss Baby is the surreal, nightmarish creation of someone who has recently come off a high dose of hospital-grade painkillers.

How can a film with a baby in a suit not be cute in parts? But that's all it is -- cute in parts.
March 29, 2017
This film is just like a toddler: cute and energetic, but also constantly confusing everyone about what it wants to do.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

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]

In the end, the only statement being made is that this is an adequate family film. Oh, and love conquers all.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
March 30, 2017
Basically, this movie is exceedingly clever until it isn't, finding creative ways to explain outrageous plot points until it gets tired and starts bombarding its young target audience with chase sequences instead.

If cookies are for closers, The Boss Baby doesn't even get the set of Fisher Price steak knives.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 30, 2017
There's just not enough there to sustain interest.
Full Review | Original Score: C
March 30, 2017
The most disappointing thing about Boss Baby is not its ridiculous premise and name, but something that Boss Baby would have surely learned in Marketing 101. Who is this movie's demographic?
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
March 30, 2017
An unsettling talking-infant farce that doubles as an unsettling Pop Capitalist saga for the age of the corporate citizen.
Full Review | Original Score: C
March 27, 2017
The Boss Baby is a movie made for few audiences, inconceivably inept in its ability to blend adult references with children's immaturity.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
