THE BOSS BABY (2017): The Things I liked…

When I first realised that The Boss Baby was about a smart / adult-like briefcase carrying baby, I feared that as I watched the movie, I’d miss the only other smart / adult-like  baby I’d ever known and loved. I’m of course talking about the lovable Stewie Griffin of Seth MacFarlane’s Family Guy. Luckily though, as I watched the Tom McGrath directed animated movie, not for a single second did the delightful Stewie G. pop into my mind. There was simply too much engaging fun, imagination and general cuteness going on in The Boss Baby.

There’s certainly no doubting that the person behind the story of The Boss Baby (Marla Frazee) is an individual with a great imagination – not unlike the film’s main character, Timmy (Miles Bakshi) – and many other children you may or may not know. Naturally, kids are going to have a good time with The Boss Baby but you absolutely don’t have to be a kid to like it.

There were some things that happened in this movie that really reminded me that I was watching an animation, meaning that the rules of what may or may not happen in an everyday situation simply have be discarded completely. Usually I’m fine with suspending my disbelief but with this movie for some reason, I was sometimes less able.

My personal favourite animated films are still Finding Nemo (2003) and Ratatouille (2007)This movie, though not as well executed in every way as the aforementioned, it’s still a fun adventure. Another personal highlight for me was knowing that the dad character was being voiced by my favourite American talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel; a seemingly nice man whose voice I happen to find rather comforting.

THE BOSS BABY (2017): New Trailer From Alec Baldwin, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow…

Alec Baldwin, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow and Steve Buscemi’s latest movie is The Boss Baby, an animated comedy about a suit-wearing briefcase-carrying baby on a mission…

Who can think of a smart talking cartoon baby boy without the smartest talking cartoon baby boy in the world, Family Guy‘s Stewie Griffin coming to mind? I want  The Boss Baby to be good enough that I don’t think too much about Stewie. Here’s to hoping.

At least I like this trailer more than the first one, a good sign I think. Also I generally love Alec Baldwin’s comedy work so that too is a good sign.

The Boss Baby Release Dates: March 31st, 2017 (US); April 7th, 2017 (UK);  April 12th, 2017 (FR); April 20th, 2017 (GER)…

Jeffrey Blitz is the director behind the new Anna Kendrick, Stephen Merchant, Craig Robinson and Lisa Kudrow comedy/ drama, Table 19.

Table 19 is that table at a wedding for the random people that the bride and groom aren’t particularly close to anymore, but feel obligated to invite…

I already like the vibe of this trailer, thanks to the edit and music. Also, brothers Jay and Mark Duplass are the writers which  means that at the very least it’s going to be watchable.

Thomas Cocquerel, Tony Revolori, June Squib, Amanda Crew and Wyatt Russell also make an appearance.

Table 19 Release Dates: January 20th, 2017 (US & UK)…

Happy Film Loving 🙂
