Storyline

Seven-year-old Tim Templeton has always been a boy of an overactive imagination, and for the past seven years, life was all peaches for him, getting all the love and affection from his caring parents. However, life will never be the same and Tim won't be the centre of attention anymore as the arrival of an improbable new brother named Boss Baby, dressed in a black suit complete with a tie and a briefcase, will shortly rob him of all love, as he takes over the whole Templetons' house. Nevertheless, although this may be true, soon, Tim and the new Boss in a diaper will need to put differences aside and join forces, as a sneaky scheme involving the head of Puppy Co. threatens to tilt the balance of power towards their insidiously adorable furry antagonists, not to mention that the next Pet Convention is in only two days.. Brothers, hurry up. Written by Nick Riganas

Trivia

In the scene where Boss Baby and Tim are looking for the plans, Boss Baby throws his disguise into the bin. The way it lands in the bin directly mirrors The Spider-Man story 'Spider-Man no More'. Tobey Maguire, who voices the older Tim portrayed Peter Parker / Spider-Man for three movies, the second of which also pays homage to this iconic image See more »

Goofs

When Tim is in the garden, he is running to the garden door. He is just an approximate metre away from some cobbles, although when he is stopped by Boss Baby and his crew, he is further away. See more »

Great movie for family and kids
31 March 2017 | by (Vietnam) – See all my reviews

I rarely write review, but after seeing the score of this movie, I have to say : Damn it, it's a good movie, why do it have so many negative critics? I just watched it yesterday with my friends and laughed my ass off the entire time of the movie. It's very creative, the joke is well crafted. Some scenes are pretty emotion too. If you have kids, bring them to the cinema, they will absolutely love this. The animation is cute and funny. Some people say it's just another "Secret life of pets" movie. I admit "Secret life of pets" is bad, but the boss baby is different, the plot sometimes makes no sense but who cares! It's a movie for kids and the main thing is it funny as hell. So ignore all the haters, go check the movie yourself.
