Based on the book of the same name by Marla Frazee, the Boss Baby (voiced by Alec Baldwin) collaborates with the seven year old brother Tim (Miles Bakshi) to terminate the cruel scheme implemented by the Puppy Co. CEO Francis Francis (Steve Buscemi).
“The Boss Baby” is a harmless family flick; however, it includes excessive toilet humor – initially fun yet quickly repetitive and redundant. The narrative is so darn focused on the toilet jokes that the heartfelt message (appreciating the sibling or two) is left in the dust. Nevertheless, the vibrant animation is decent eye candy.
Despite the cute infants, “The Boss Baby” is grueling – more so than the baby herself. C-
