Not my cup of tea
Verified purchase
I've watched animated movies like Incredibles 1 & 2, Angry Birds 1 & 2, Frozen, etc. I like most of them for their stories and "execution". I personally don't like the storyline or how it was executed. To be honest, I stopped watching in less than 5 min. Since I only rented the movie, it was easier for me to stop watching; had I purchased the movie I'd force myself to sit thru the whole movie.
I'm just saying not my cup of tea; many others would probably enjoy it.

Great move. Poor playback.
Verified purchase
The movie was great however, the playback left more to be desired. The sound would cut off intermittently, almost as if it was being censored for language. I have not experienced this before on prime video and was a bit bothered that it happened on a paid video playback. I hope this is an isolated incident. Otherwise I’ll likely not rent any other movies on amazon prime video. Also, I’m fairly confident it wasn’t my internet service as I have a 1000 mbps fiber setup and no other device was connected to the WiFi.

Dry humor, possibly more entertaining for adults
Verified purchase
My son got bored about 15mn into the movie and started playing with his legos. I have to say I was a bit disappointing as I bought it specifically for him. I finished it however, and I did get a few good laughs. Still, it would have been nice for him to be a bit more interested. Some of the humor seemed more aimed at adults and way over a kids head, at least a younger kid.

Great Movie
Verified purchase
I bought this for my son who loves this movie. He has watched it probably 500 times. Most things he watches this much aren’t really something I enjoy. But this one is cute and has some adult humor. The babies are so cute. If your children have not seen this I suggest you get this one. You and they will not be disappointed.

Child may, or may not, like it!
Verified purchase
I wish I'd watched it with my seven-year-old granddaughter, so I'd be able to write a more detailed review. All I really know is that she started crying towards the end because the main character wanted to go home. I gather from that, the movie may be emotional!

I enjoyed the story line and loved all of those big eyed babies. Boss baby was hilarious in my opinion. The most important message overlooked by critics is loving and supporting family is our most important job, regardless whether we fit in or not!

Don’t like this movie as a parent
Verified purchase
I really dislike this movie as a parent. It feels like the kids and the baby are very demanding and get everything they want. The baby also promotes demonstrative behavior. I don’t like watching this movie because I don’t want my son to portray the same attitudes.
