Now playing in movie theaters across the country, as well as streaming on the premium service Peacock TV, is the sequel to the hit film Boss Baby (2017) entitled The Boss Baby: Family Business (otherwise known as Boss Baby 2).
The Boss Baby: Family Business stars the voice talents of Alec Baldwin, James Marsden, Amy Sedaris, Jeff Goldblum, Eva Longoria, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow and Ariana Greenblatt.
It’s been decades since the events of the first film. Tim Templeton (Marsden) is now married with two daughters, seven year old Tabitha (Greenblatt) and infant Tina (Sedaris). Tim’s younger brother, Ted (Baldwin) is a successful CEO of a company.
Sadly, Tim and Ted don’t see each other often, if at all. Instead of visiting with the family, Ted opts to send the children elaborate gifts, such as a pony.
As it is with most parent/child relationships eventually, Tabitha seems to be pulling away from Tim. She doesn’t want to spend time with him like she once did, and she finds her father’s silliness and humor off putting.
One night, Tim hears something strange coming from his infant daughter’s room. He walks in to discover that she can talk – and like an adult (not an infant who would just babble and make sounds). To Tim’s surprise, Tina is a “boss baby,” just like his brother Ted was when he was an infant. Not only that, she was assigned a special mission that involves not only her father, but also her Uncle Ted. Tina even went so far as to call her Uncle Ted to have him rush to their home under false pretenses.
Tina explains to her father and uncle that Baby Corp. is concerned about a Dr. Erwin Armstrong who has a lot of schools for babies around the world. They fear he might be up to no good. To make matters worse, Tim’s daughter Tabitha attends one of these schools.
Using special pacifiers, Tina is able to transform her father into a young boy, and her uncle into an infant. They are then sent to Dr. Armstrong’s school where Tim gets to see his daughter Tabitha in a whole new light, and Uncle Ted gets a new perspective on what it’s like to be around babies.
Will Tim, Ted and Tina figure out what Dr. Armstrong is up to, before it’s too late? To find out you need to go see The Boss Baby: Family Business. Look for it at a theater near you or on Peacock TV (PeacockTV.com or on the app).
If you were a fan of the first Boss Baby movie, I have no doubt that you’ll enjoy this movie as well. It’s a bit different, but the same humor is there.
It’s been ages since I’ve seen the first film, but if I recall correctly it was equally as adorable.
NOT to come off as sounding political (I would NEVER bring up politics on my site), but the animators made Uncle Ted look like Donald Trump. I don’t know if it’s a coincidence, or they did it on purpose since Baldwin portrays Trump on Saturday Night Live?
Overall my husband and I enjoyed the film. It’s silly, maybe even a bit too silly at times, but we enjoyed it none the less. We even found ourselves laughing here and there (the pony Uncle Ted gives the girls is funny).
The characters are all enjoyable, but Dr. Armstrong is a bit too weird at times. Especially once it’s releveled who Dr. Armstrong really is.
The school where most of the film takes place is really creative. The film makers made sure to make this a one of a kind school. I especially love the “time out” pod. I’d gladly go in there, even if I didn’t say or do anything wrong.
