Considering that it’s based on a cute but pretty story-lite picture book, this animated comedy exceeds expectations — especially if you’re a fan of Baldwin’s work on 30 Rock.

This is the most damning political narrative of 2017.
Emily Yoshida, Vulture
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. The most unusual Boss Baby (Alec Baldwin) arrives at Tim’s home in a taxi, wearing a suit and carrying a briefcase. The instant sibling rivalry must soon be put aside when Tim discovers that Boss Baby is actually a spy on a secret mission, and only he can help thwart a dastardly plot that involves an epic battle between puppies and babies.
This film is surprisingly clever and entertaining. Great for the little ones – and if you are a fan of Alec Baldwin in his 30 Rock greatness, this is for you.
