QUICK TAKE:
Computer-Animated Comedy: A 7-year-old boy learns that his new baby brother is actually a ruthless corporate executive who's trying to even the cuteness playing field between babies and puppies.
PLOT:
Tim Templeton (voice of MILES CHRISTOPHER BAKSHI) is a 7-year-old boy who lives with his Mom (voice of LISA KUDROW) and Dad (voice of JIMMY KIMMEL) and revels in his overactive imagination and loves his parents' undivided attention. Thus, when a new infant arrives in the house, he's less than pleased to now be second fiddle to his baby brother who's lured their mom and dad's attention away from him.

Things become more complicated when Tim learn that his new sibling, Boss Baby (voice of ALEC BALDWIN), is actually a ruthless corporate executive (with an adult's mind in a baby's body) who's been sent by Baby Corp. to spy on the parents who work for Puppy Co. It seems that babies are now losing the war vs. puppies in terms of perceived cuteness, and Boss Baby has been tasked with infiltrating the enemy.

Along with other young children such as Staci (voice of VIVIANN YEE), some triplets (voice of ERIC BELL JR.) and Jim (who never speaks), he sets out to do just that, all while Tim tries to prove who and what this new family member truly is. As that plays out, they must contend with the nefarious Francis E. Francis (voice of STEVE BUSCEMI) and his hulking brother, Eugene (voice of CONRAD VERNON).

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
It's a good bet many will, what with being a computer-animated comedy about kids.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For some mild rude humor.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
