"A suit-wearing briefcase-carrying baby pairs up with his seven-year old brother to stop the dastardly plot of the CEO of Puppy Co."
Movie type: Animated Comedy - This family animated comedy is aimed primarily at kids, but there are a number of jokes and references aimed at the adult audience. Alec Baldwin fans will have plenty to enjoy here, but other names in the voice cast such as Lisa Kudrow and Jimmy Kimmel don't have as much to do. The PG rating is due to some mildly crude toilet humor that most parents will find to be a non-issue.
Director: Tom McGrath
Script: Michael McCullers
Starring: Voice of the mother - Lisa Kudrow, Voice of the Baby - Alec Baldwin, Voice of the Francis - Steve Buscemi, Ode Tim - Tobey Maguire

Roger Ebert: ”Average ...The Boss Baby often tries too hard and succeeds too little. ...there's a lack of logic and coherence that is regularly compounded by a slapdash execution as messy as a week's worth of poopy diapers.”
Rex Reed: ”Below Average Despite a rather dull palette, there is a snappy look to The Boss Baby thanks to its 50's industrial film sheen. Frankly, anyone over 10 would do better streaming Baldwin do his thing on Tiny Fey's show, and they would likely come away with much healthier views on procreation.”
