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.

Laughs when the babies get together. Choice of Alec Baldwin as the boss baby voice is funny in itself. Extras are great for adults.

Better than I expected it to be. There were some great visual gags and the story moved along nicely. Not destined to be amongst the classics of animation but surprisingly entertaining. The animation was top quality too

The surprises kept on coming, provided by the talented screen writers and animators. Kudos to their creatively on an original kiddie satire suitable for everyone in the family. The message to parents is that they should be sensitive to sibling rivalries between young children and newborns. For youngsters, share and work to grow the family "love pie", as Boss Baby said "I can't do this without you Tim" and Tim replied "Yeah, we make a pretty good team." On the other hand, while there is a message in the story, it is all about having fun and good laughs. Also, love those imaginative shorts in "Extras", particularly these three:
1. The Forever Puppy Infomercial – Always playful, always snuggly, and everlastingly cute; The Forever Puppy is destined to win the cuteness competition with babies once and for all.
2. BabyCorp and You – Helpful advice and more for new infants on the job at BabyCorp.
3. Babies vs. Puppies: Who Do YOU Love? – Who has won the hearts of families once and for all? This “scientific” experiment compares and contrasts factors such as “cuddliness,” “adorability,” and “attention grabbing techniques” used by both demanding competitors.

I don't like Alec Baldwin but he is not to bad here. Okay for kids.

This was a cute movie. It's really an adult cartoon because the subtle references are political and cheesy. Predictable, no surprises - antagonist, situation, heroes. Animation is good, soundtrack good. Purpose and theme, not clear because it seemed like to screenwriter just threw together a common good theme.

***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.
