Boss Baby: A hilarious new movie

Bored? Feeling stressed out and need a good laugh? Looking for a good movie to go to that younger children could attend as well? If your answer is “yes” to any of these questions, the recent movie Boss Baby starring Alec Baldwin, Lisa Kudrow, and many others is a perfect choice to go see.

In the movie Boss Baby, a young kid by the name of Tim Templeton (played by Miles Christopher) is an only child, living at home with both of his parents. He has a great life, and loves having the full attention of both of his parents. However, at the beginning of the movie, Tim’s parents decide to have another baby and Tim is now a big brother.

In the world of this movie, babies come from Baby Headquarters. There are two types of babies: babies that are given to families like normal, and babies who go into management. The baby brought into Tim’s family (played by Alec Baldwin) is a management baby. Management babies can speak like adults and they always wear a suit. This baby is on a particular mission: to stop the production of a new puppy that will surely take over families’ love for babies. However, he has to act as if he is a real baby.

Tim becomes jealous of all the attention his new brother is receiving, and wants the baby out of the house. Through this process, Tim starts to notice that the baby is not behaving quite right. He eventually realizes that this baby is not actually a “baby”. Ultimately, Tim and the baby decide to team up so that the baby can complete his mission and go back to Baby Headquarters, and Tim can have his family back. Will the mission succeed and will the boys go their separate ways, or will something else happen instead?

I don’t want to spoil the movie, so I’m not going to give away anymore of the plot. Boss Baby is definitely great for any age, as both my 9 year old sister and I both loved the movie. I thought it was highly entertaining and I found myself laughing out loud several times during the movie. I fully recommend seeing this movie, either in the theater or renting it from Redbox when it comes out.
