Babies, even though they may be small, they sure do have alot of power! Late nights, nonstop crying, messy blowouts….. If you have a baby, then you know these words and experiences well. This past Saturday we welcomed a beautiful baby girl into our family. With a 15 month at home who gets all of mommy’s attention and time, this new arrival was not as well received by older brother than we thought she would be. As a matter of fact, baby boy is still struggling to accept his new sister. Between the crying and pulling of mommy away from the newborn, life is quite the adventure at home.
Boss Baby is a delightful movie about Tim, an imaginative 7 year old boy. Tim is an only child, and he loves being the focus of his parents. When the family brings home the new baby, Tim realizes that something is up. Why is this baby dressed in a suit and carrying a briefcase? Where did he come from? When Tim discovers the baby’s real identity and plans, he sets out to reveal who the “real” baby is to his parents. Tim desperately wants to return to his happy life as a family of 3. As the movie progresses, Tim develops a fondness to The Boss Baby and begins to realize that being a family of four may not be such a bad idea.
Do I think you should go see it? Absolutely! My family and I enjoyed The Boss Baby. There was humor for both kids and adults, and it kept us laughing. They do discuss the age old question of “Where do Babies Come From?” The movie explains that babies come from BabyCorp. Here newborns are sorted and prepared for delivery to families. Some are selected to do other missions, such as The Boss Baby.
What we enjoyed the most, my husband and I, is that we could relate to the jokes and experiences of the parents with a newborn. Of course, kids will LOVE the fart and poopy diaper jokes. Overall, the animation is great and kids of ALL ages will enjoy watching The Boss Baby. It will leave you realizing just how special the bond is between siblings, even if they can’t figure it out at first like our baby boy with his new little sister.
THE BOSS BABY
DreamWorks Animation and the director of Madagascar invite you to meet a most unusual baby. He wears a suit, speaks with the voice and wit of Alec Baldwin, and stars in the animated comedy, DreamWorks’ The Boss Baby. The Boss Baby is a hilariously universal story about how a new baby’s arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator, a wildly imaginative 7 year old named Tim. With a sly, heart-filled message about the importance of family, DreamWorks’ The Boss Baby is an authentic and broadly appealing original comedy for all ages.
Starring the voices of Alec Baldwin, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow, Tobey Maguire and Steve Buscemi. Directed by Tom McGrath.
