Quick Review: “The Boss Baby” by Brian Wallinger

Directed by Tom McGrath and featuring the voice talents of Alec Baldwin and Miles Christoper Bakshi, this animated release offers a unique and original take on the question that, inevitably, every six year-old asks, “Where do babies come from?”  Baldwin’s character is the Boss Baby, starting out life as an intelligent baby beyond his years with the task of undermining a plan involving puppies. Pitted against his ‘older brother’ Tim, they go toe to toe until they realize that they need each other.  Boasting solid CGI animation and too few clever moments its shallow script falls flat from repetitive jokes.  Now playing in theaters, “The Boss Baby” is Recommended.
