Interesting , innovative ideas movie with a great message for children and everyone in this matter : there is enough Love for everyone and we belong to a great family. Well done animation movie.

The creative team at DreamWorks Animation has done it again with a thoughtful and funny film with a message that is universal, no matter of what age is sucking on the soother. It was better than i had expected, due to the trailer, as i could not get my mind around a baby in as suit etc., at least not until i saw the film.
Cleverly done with the ultimate message that "there is enough love to go around."
Recommended for young and the older children in your family. Some parts do get a little silly, but how can you say something is wrong, when it has imagination and creative license.
The bonus material have eight short 2 -3 minute pieces and one eight minute piece with the director and one other, adding their take on the out-takes! Well worth the watch and stay until the end of the credits.
Recommended for the overall message alone, but the animation and story is top notch.

NOT, I repeat NOT hilarious or even laugh out loud funny. This movie did absolutely nothing for me or the audience. It is surprisingly unfunny in far too many ways! I would NOT recommend this movie to anyone. I would like to have back the time I wasted watching it!

Better than I expected. Some of it gets too silly and some of the comments will be over the heads of kids, but that helps the parents enjoy it.

Alec Baldwin was funny.

I was not expecting The Boss Baby to be such a good movie! It was funny, and heart-warming and even made my eyes well up at one point. It's a beautiful family movie. At first, i

Probably my second favourite kids movie since Finding Nemo. This is a must see for kids and parents alike. Great graphics. I laughed, I cried, great movie!

This is an absolutely adorable movie. I have two girls ages 2 and 4, they both watched this movie over and over again. Tim, the older boy in the movie, is very imaginative so some of the scenes are kind of scary disturbing. But the girls did not seem bothered. This is a must see, and a great way to be appreciative of siblings.

The Boss Baby movie was fun to watch - it's an animation movie for kids of any age, actually because there is no bad words or anything else bad. If I would rate the movie out of 10 I would choose 9 out of 10 because I really liked everything in it - the beginning and the ending were amazing! I liked how the kid in the end started to help the little man even though he hated him in the beginning and wanted him to leave because he took everything from him. The movie is actually really good and the ending is amazing.

***Spoiler Alert***

Throughout history... people have loved babies more than anything in the world. We've always been a must-have item... number one on every wish list. Puppies were merely accessories. But all that changed when the puppies began coming out... with new designer models. Each one more adorable than the last.
Well, see this pie chart? Wow, it looks like a giant pie. It represents all the love there is in the world. ... Point is, the puppies' slice is getting bigger and bigger. They're stealing all our love!
-Just like you did to me.
Exactly. And if this keeps up... there might not be enough pie left for babies.
Imagine a puppy that never grows up. A puppy that stays a puppy forever. Once I launch my Forever Puppies to every corner of the world... they'll be so adorable... no one will ever want a baby ever, ever again.

Survival of the fittest. It is the law of the jungle. There is always someone trying to take away what is yours.
I'm already making progress with parents. The usual procedure: sleep deprivation, hunger strikes. They are very confused. I have them eating out of my hand. They do everything for me.
I'm seven and a half.
-Exactly! You're old. It's time to make way for the next generation. It's the way of the world. You would never ask your parents for an old toy. Everyone wants the hot, new thing.
The path to success is not a straight line, Templeton... but rather a wild ride... like a ship at sea. And you're a sea captain... taming a turbulent ocean!
Watch your stern!
- Aye! Dodge, parry, and thrust!
Sounds like a heck of a law firm!
Chicks dig babies. The people of Long Island do not know how to make an iced tea.
