I can see The Boss Baby working as an animated short, similar to the opening of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, but there just isn't enough meat on the bones for a feature film.

Like my parenting methods, this is several great ideas that collapse into a bit of a mess when put into practice. Still, it's a useful watch for older siblings who may well identify with 7 year old Tim, feeling pushed out when his baby brother arrives.

The Boss Baby is the loaded diaper of animated comedies
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Forgettable toddler fodder film from a once creative animated studio that didn't only appeal to younger viewers.

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.

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.

Basically, the only people to whom The Boss Baby appeals are children young enough to still be entertained by jingling keys.

One has to really scrabble through the disparate parts to find most of the value, while the kids (as always) will really love the usual tricks.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

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.

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

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.
