Boss Baby

Before watching Boss Baby, I wasn’t exactly certain that it would be my type of film. After watching it, I can certainly say that it wasn’t. Boss Baby (featuring the voices of Alec Baldwin and Steve Buscemi, among others) is your standard children’s movie where the exceptional kids are required to save the bumbling parents. (The storyline was a bit more developed than just that aspect, but not by much.) While I did like the fact that the movie highlighted the importance of having an imagination and featured scenes from other works, such as Mary Poppins, Indiana Jones, and Moby Dick, I was less than impressed with some of the movie’s other qualities. For example, I was surprised (and appalled) at the amount and graphicness of the body-function humor included in the film. I was also disappointed with some of the movie’s messages involving the stereotyping of various groups of individuals, including types of company employees and those individuals that went to community colleges. In general, families with children might enjoy the film, but, personally, I was happy that my daughter is too young to have understood some of the film’s content. Overall Rating: C-
