"The Boss Baby" still feels standard issue and a wee bit tiresome.

Its snappy, pop-culture-referencing script feels workshopped to death.

It's a movie whose story is aimed at the siblings of newborns - the 8-and-under crowd, more or less. They'll follow the plot for most of the way; they just might be puzzled by their accompanying parent's reactions. "What's so funny, Dad?"

What is clear is that The Boss Baby is a concept that doesn't work, whether it's taken to be aimed at actual children or at the subgroup of adults who might get fleeting amusement from an allusion to Baldwin's role in Glengarry Glen Ross.

Not even a mealymouthed attempt at political satire is ultimately enough to rescue "The Boss Baby" from its pervasive sourness and paucity of imagination.

Words like "inventive" and "inspired" are very rarely applied to the parade of cookie-cutter animated features that pass through the multiplex each year, but The Boss Baby proves a refreshing exception.

All novelty value mined from Baldwin putting blunt business-speak in the mouth of a cute little bubba is spent very quickly here indeed.

Watched this with my 7year old and I must say it's actually quite good, more enjoyable then I expected. A fresh take on the "where do babies come from?" shtick. There's plenty to keep the young and not so young amused and it has the usual messages and lessons learnt. You won't be bored and the kids will love it
