The Boss Baby

When his parents bring home a business suit-wearing baby, seven-year-old Tim (Bakshi) is jealous, and more than a little suspicious of his new brother's (Baldwin) unusual behavior. His suspicions prove to be founded when the baby, also known as "The Boss," reveals that he can talk like an adult, and that he's actually an agent who's been sent by Baby Corp., an organization made up of babies of adult-level intelligence devoted to preserving the love of infants. His mission: to discover why puppies have been getting more love than infants.

Director: Tom McGrath. Stars: Alec Baldwin, Miles Bakshi, Steve Buscemi, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow, Tobey Maguire. 2017. 97 min. Animation.
