The Boss Baby In Theaters Today Mar. 31st #TheBossBaby #sponsored

I attended a free screening of The Boss Baby.  All opinions are mine.

Dreamworks Animation, movie reviews, animated films, Alec Baldwin, family-friendly movies

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 BabyThe 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.  With a sly, heart-filled message about the importance of family, DreamWorks' The Boss Baby is an authentic and broadly appealing original comedy for all ages.
Alec Baldwin, Steve Buscemi, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow, Miles Bakshi

Directed by: Tom McGrath
Written by: Michael McCullers (based on the award-winning picture book by Marla Frazee)
Producer: Ramsey Ann Naito

A new baby coming into the house certainly is an adjustment for everyone.  It's tough on the sleep-deprived parents, but it is also has a huge impact on the sibling(s) who are no longer the center of their parents' universe (especially for an only child).

The Boss Baby deals with these adjustments in a creative, witty and humorous way.  And it also gives a very interesting, somewhat confusing, explanation of where babies comes from (now that's a conversation every parent probably dreads).

Tim is a happy, creative seven-year-old whose world gets turned upside down the moment the baby arrives in a taxi. You read that right, I said a taxi.  But I won't tell you why, because that would spoil the surprise.

As you can probably guess, there's some conflict between Tim and this new baby wearing a suit (he IS the boss after all, since babies do demand their needs be met at all times and right away).   But in the end, there are some heart-warming lessons that Tim and the baby learn about working together, sharing their parents' love, and learning how to get along as brothers.

As a parent, I could totally relate to the family's "labor pains" as they adjust to having a baby in the house.  Older siblings will also connect to how Tim feels when his brother seemingly takes all of his parents' attention and intrudes upon his cozy life.  

There are some really hilarious moments in the movie for both kids and adults including naked baby booty, farting, and poop jokes.  There are also some adorable baby sidekicks!

One of my favorite characters was the alarm clock wizard that wakes Tim up in the morning.  The wizard is supposed to be Gandolf from Lord of the Rings, and he is a total trip!  

The Boss Baby is funny, heart-warming entertainment for the whole family!   This is one I'm sure we'll want to own and watch over and over again.
