DreamWorks animation, the studio that brought us such films as Shrek and Madagascar gives us a new film to keep the kids amused over the Easter school holiday.

The Boss Baby (voiced by Alec Baldwin) is the story of, an infant who wears a black business suit and carries a briefcase. The reason for his attire is that The Boss Baby is on a secret mission to stop Puppy CEO, Francis E Francis (Steve Buscemi) from launching a new product that would weaken parents’ love of babies and cause them instead to give their affection to dogs.

The only person that can see The Boss Baby for what he is, is seven year old Tim Templeton (Miles Christopher Bakshi). Unfortunately where he sees a tyrant of a baby, his parents (Jimmy Kimmel and Lisa Kudrow) only see a cute affectionate child.

Needless to say the pair eventually have to put their differences aside so that they can defeat the evil Francis E Francis.

Young children should enjoy The Boss Baby, after all it’s a film abought a baby. However for older members of the audience they might find their patience being tested because at 97 minutes long the story starts to feel stretched.

The animation, as we have come to expect from DreamWorks is excellent and Alec Baldwin is on top form as the voice of the Boss Baby. Just make sure that when you go you take a small child with you as they will be the ones that will take the most from what is on the whole a rather average animated film.
