The Boss Baby

Review by Honey B

Directors: Tom McGrath Vocal Cast: Alex Baldwin, Lisa Kudrow, Jimmy Kimmel, Steve Buscemi, Miles Christopher Bakshi, Tobey Maguire Plot: DreamWorks Animation and the director of Madagascar invite you to meet a most unusual baby. He wears a suit, speaks with the voice and wit of Alec Baldwin, and stars in the animated comedy, DreamWorks' The Boss Baby. The Boss Baby is a hilariously universal story about how a new baby's arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator, a wildly imaginative 7 year old named Tim. Verdict: This baby has on his big boy pants and he’s taking over the family. Voiced to perfection by Alex Baldwin, this Boss baby is his brother’s middle management nightmare – complete with immaculate suit, briefcase and a determined agenda. Imaginative seven-year-old brother Tim (voiced by Miles Christopher Bakshi) isn’t taking any of the goo, goo, ga, ga baby talk his new sibling is dishing out – Tim knows the diaper-clad mini-mogul can talk. With his parents (voiced by Lisa Kudrow and Jimmy Kimmel) blissfully unaware of their newborns abilities, Tim sets out to find out his little bro’s secret and send him packing. This delightful movie has strong family values as the two siblings discover they need each other to bring down an evil empire and re-store a blissful family dynamic to the world. DreamWorks has crafted a visually colourful movie and the scenes where Tim lets his imagination run wild are simply beautiful and inspiring. It was very easy to get lost in these wonderful scenes. The vocal casting of Baldwin as Boss Baby is superb and he brings his dry wit and egotistical tone to the conceited man-baby. The rest of the vocal cast is also on pitch and a special mention must go out to James McGrath as Wizzie the talking Wizard alarm clock who offers Tim much-needed advice. This  vivid family movie tugs at the heartstrings and sets imaginations soaring. (Movies are rated out of 5 stars)
