After all, “The Boss Baby” has a sequel. Alec Baldwin voiced a dyspeptic, super-intelligent, black-suited newborn in the 2017 DreamWorks film adaptation of Marla Frazee’s children’s book series and it paid off handsomely, to the tune of $500 million in worldwide box revenue and an Oscar nod.

The Boss Baby First Film

“The Boss Baby: Family Business” is making a similar large bet that family viewers, who are otherwise depleted of new offerings, are ready to return to the theatres early on, with a simultaneous streaming bow on Peacock. In spite of the film’s lack of intrigue, it is a well-executed re-creation of the original’s premise that adds just the right amount of off-the-wall aspects to keep things entertaining.

The Boss Baby Family Business Plot

Tim (James Marsden), the protagonist of “Boss Baby,” is now an adult with a family of his own, and he’s lost touch with his younger brother, a successful Boss Man who has no recollection of their peculiar childhood.

While Baldwin’s “Saturday Night Live” imitation in the first film drew comparisons to Donald Trump, here the adult role seems to have been purposefully modelled on the disgraced ex-pre-politics president’s look.

An increasingly embarrassed Tabitha (Ariana Greenblatt), Tim’s eldest daughter, has taken a shine to her prosperous Boss Uncle despite her dad’s ridiculous home-schooling antics. He has a baby girl named Tina, and she appears to be a normal baby, so it’s no surprise when she suddenly transforms into a Baby Corp.

As opposed to many sequels, The Boss Baby Family Business actually enhances the original.

Movies like 2017’s The Boss Baby were adorable. Let’s be honest, Alec Baldwin’s boss baby was grating after a while, and the movie’s potty humour about diapers was, uh, in your face. (And a dirty diaper doesn’t belong there.) However, there are many more characters and plot developments in this sequel. This means that there is less time to wallowing in the mud.

Yes, toilet humour is still around, along with plenty of splat and drip comedy. Babies, pasted teeth, slobbered candy, and crackpot geniuses are all par for the course in this hilarious film.

The Boss Baby Family Business is a heartfelt and charming animated sequel. The most emotionless dads will shed a tear or two over the touching scenes involving their daughters. In addition, there are some heartwarming messages about the immense worth of a supportive family in general, as well as hints at the deep ties that bind relatives together, even when they are bickering siblings.

The water balloon war that broke out at your last backyard barbecue may have been the highlight of the summer for your family, but hey, this picture may not be as much fun. However, it’s safe to assume that Uncle Chuck would approve.

Even Uncle Bob gave it a positive review.
