The Boss Baby (G in the Philippines, PG elsewhere) 2017

A new baby's arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator -- a wildly imaginative 7-year-old named Tim. The most unusual Boss Baby (Alec Baldwin) arrives at Tim's home in a taxi, wearing a suit and carrying a briefcase. The instant sibling rivalry must soon be put aside when Tim discovers that Boss Baby is actually a spy on a secret mission, and only he can help thwart a dastardly plot that involves an epic battle between puppies and babies.-imdb

The Boss Baby is a fun movie.  We have planned to watch this since last March after reading that it beat Beauty and The Beast at the box office tills.

I prefer B & t B over TBB.  Just saying...


Ted and Janice prepared Tim for "Boss Baby" or Ted Jr. or Teddy, but Tim said he is enough(Mom Janice was very much pregnant at that time---ergo, Teddy was born and did not really arrive in a taxi).  I remember last 2015, when my nephew who is based here was only eight years old and he met his cousin from Ireland the first time, he was sort of edgy.  His four-year-old Irish cousin was calling him brother.  "Doesn't he know I want to remain an only child?" Oh my goodness.  I bet when he was watching this he kind of saw himself in Timmy.  :-p


Timmy is a kid with a very active or wild imagination and I love the way reality and play were(are) interspersed.  

There are also many "cute moments" and altered realities.  ;-)  The music and the dialogue are very good too.

Surely, people of all ages would appreciate this film.

I don't think I need to say more.  :-)
