  • Rafael Zen's rating of the film The Boss Baby

    This is Looney Tunes meets 30 Rock! I laughed so hard several times, like no comedy has ever made me laugh in the past couple years. And the animation is incredible! It changes from genre to genre like a boss (get it?). I guess my only critic is being so focused on following the Hollywood Screenplay Bible. Besides that - it's fun fun fun!

  • Huey McEvoy's rating of the film The Boss Baby

    I didn't expect to be so *frustrated* by this film. It is very clearly signposted early on that the older brother is an unreliable narrator, so you fully expect the twist to show how this fantasy was his way of coping with the childhood trauma of a new sibling. But that smart concept is completely abandoned in the final act. They could have been Pixar-good: instead they went and bloody Dreamworks'd it.

  • f-nanda's rating of the film The Boss Baby

    I don't get the bad reviews here. For me, it was the most creative and funny original animation since Monsters Inc. Alec Baldwin was the perfect choice for the baby. Now I'm gonna listen to black bird for a week and cry my guts out.

  • Steve Pulaski's rating of the film The Boss Baby

    It appears that DreamWorks Animation has stopped trying to compete with Pixar and has instead looked to give us simple, vibrant animated films with a lot of imagination. The latter is a key element in The Boss Baby, which vaguely reminded me of The Fairly Oddparents and that's impressive. The admittedly one-note film also inspires a canvas of various animation styles and remains engaging the entire time.

  • Tibulle85's rating of the film The Boss Baby

    (Vu en DVD sans ma fille) 3,5/5 Le récit fait un véritable effort pour justifier son point de départ capillotracté (un bébé manager-espion débarque dans une famille lambda...) en proposant deux niveaux de lecture (film d'action familial rigolo..mais aussi ode à l'imagination des enfants). De ce fait, le film - d'ailleurs un peu longuet - parlera certainemt aux parents, mais peut-être plus difficilement aux enfants...

  • Mr.Rager's rating of the film The Boss Baby

    Nice cartoons. I liked the story in the first part. Was very lively, good jokes, nice imagination overall but almost suddenly things fall apart and i didn't like the ending so much. It could have been better for sure. funny how the baby throw money all the time for his minor mistakes. is such a boss. Looks like will be a sequel. i don't mind that. 6/10

  • NUGA's rating of the film The Boss Baby

    Although the movie is cliché ridden and poorly constructed, it does have a style of its own that makes t feel interesting a few times. It manages to suit every audience range, but feels tonally deficient overall.

  • vladimirbalt's rating of the film The Boss Baby

    A sweet family movie. The animation itself is gorgeous but that doesn't help that this will be forgotten very soon. Shame for all those creative bits that flicker an interesting artistic premise. And the plot? Well... He's the boss baby. That's all.
