The Boss Baby: Family Business movie review - Aussieboyreviews


The humour is definitely alike the first film, but this sequel’s plot is really flat and uninteresting. However, it is a nice family-themed comedy for kids. Expect rude humour, slapstick action and wacky characters.


Now adults and dads, Tim and Ted Templeton are brought back together by a new boss baby, one of Tim’s daughters, and take a magical formula that transforms them into their child selves. The two then team up against an evil principle.

Aussie boy's thoughts

Expect nothing from The Boss Baby: Family Business except a flat storyline, wacky characters and tedious animated action. This potty slapstick sequel is no where near as good as the original family comedy, although there’s some big-hearted family themes within this animated tale.

The first film introduces a fun story of a child meeting his new baby brother and experiencing babylike but humorous adventures. Well they’re all grown up in the sequel, but transform to their child-selves. Kids will get plenty of laughs from the slapstick action and other potty humour. But the plot is simple and flat, meaning adults won’t have too much liking for it.

This is basically another unnecessary and unwanted sequel. The Boss Baby would’ve worked out perfectly as a stand-alone film. Although Family Business’s animation techniques and voice performances are just as admirable as any other family animation, the flat story and frequently weird depictions ruin it. This was likely to turn out really badly, unwatchable or average; it turned out as a really unwatchable adventure. It’s dull, uninteresting, overlong, and unfortunate.
