Dove Review

“The Boss Baby” is a laugh-out-loud funny movie! Featuring Alec Baldwin doing the voice of the baby, the plot focuses on Baby Corp., which sends down babies from the heavens with the goal of stopping a sinister plan to take away all the love from babies of the world. A particular puppy would never grow up if the plan succeeds.

One of the funny scenes shows babies on an assembly line being prepared to be sent down to Earth. If they show no emotions, they are given a suit and briefcase and are sent down to be bosses. If they show emotion, they are given to parents to raise. Themes include the love of a boy for his baby brother and the need to share time with those you love. Filled with funny moments and memorable characters, ” Boss Baby” is not to be missed!
