The Boss Baby

Alec Baldwin brings his distinctive voice to this animated tale of sibling rivalry and management techniques.

The story is about how young Tim gets a new brother who is a fully-formed manager, complete with suit and briefcase. His parents don’t see the baby as a threat. But Tim sees danger in this new member of the family.

There are insights into family dynamics and sibling rivalry and there are deft swipes at the language of business.

I laughed a lot. Even the fart joke is very funny.

The disruptions brought by a new baby, pictures of adorable puppies and Elvis impersonators form the basis of the plot.

Don’t look for depth, here. It’s another of those animations that the adults will get more out of than the kids.

At just over an hour and a half, it’s delightful. Everyone at Stratford East Picturehouse was smiling and laughing.

It might be too much for the youngest children, but older kids will appreciate the humour and style of this. DreamWorks has made a very enjoyable film with great characters and positive messages.
