The Boss Baby – Opinion
I’m a mother of a 4 year old girl myself and with it being Easter time and the kids being off to school, I watched a movie called “The Boss Baby” in the company of my little one. Its tough keeping the little ones occupied during the holidays and the movie was proving to be quite a popular choice with my little one.
The movie touched on siblings interactions and the fun and destruction that they get up to together growing up. It made me think about how having a second baby at home would turn my life upside down. My daughter said to me in the midway through the movie, “Mommy can I have a little brother, please “. It was easy for her after seeing what joy a brother could bring while watching the movie. For me though, it was a tough thought to contemplate. Its not easy providing an amazing life for a child and having a second child must be a huge decision for parents. I’m sure there are many single people or even single parents that share my apprehension.
“Boss Baby” premiered in Miami on March 31st 2017. The film received mixed reviews from critics while it grossed 288 million Euros worldwide. The film is directed by Tom McGrath and is loosely based on the 2010 picture book of the same name written and illustrated by Marla Frazee. It stars the voices of an amazing cast of actors, including: Alec Baldwin, Steve Buscemi, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow and Tobey Maguire. The plot follows a baby who is a secret agent in the secret war between babies and puppies.
A seven year old boy (voiced by Miles Christopher Bakshi) has his life turned upside down by his new brother, an infant known as the Boss Baby( voiced by Alec Baldwin ), who wears a suit and has the manner of a businessman .The two are forced to get past their initial antagonism when they must work together on a mission to see why puppies are getting more love than infants.
What unfolds is a hilarious perspective of what love might mean to both infants and canines alike.

I would highly recommend the movie as my daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. It was a great laugh but also allowed me to reflect on life in a deeper sense. Definitely worth a watch.
