THE BOSS BABY

YOU (South Africa) - - CHILL OUT -

An­i­mated com­edy. Tim (voiced by Tobey Maguire), a boy with an over­ac­tive imag­i­na­tion, thinks he, his mom (Lisa Kudrow) and dad (Jimmy Kim­mel) are a per­fect trio – un­til a baby brother (voiced by Alec Bald­win) who’s more than meets the eye ar­rives. Tim’s new brother wears a black suit com­plete with a tie and a brief­case and threat­ens to rob Tim of his parens’ af­fec­tions.

Di­rec­tor Tom McGrath (the Mada­gas­car movies) can’t de­cide whether he’s aim­ing this point­less film at kids or adults and by the end the viewer is left won­der­ing where an hour-and-a-half of their life just went. – LYNN ELY 2017. 97 MIN. PG
