    So in the movies universe how does reproduction work if baby’s come from this “baby Corp” but pregnancy is still a thing but they apparently aren’t berthed as we know it. So dos baby Corp get word that a woman as become pregnant and after the 9 months are up kidnap the infant? And many other questions the movies directors clearly forgot to answer.

    See, this movie would've been *decent* if they went with the direction of the movie being viewed from Tim's view on having a baby brother, and growing up with him. That's it, no absurd business plot, no evil dog corporation, just an over exaggerated movie about a son growing up and learning to love his baby brother.

    I see this movie, as a weird dream Timmy had. Years later he’s telling, this weird dream, to his daughter. The whole movie, we are seeing it through Timmy’s eyes, and his daughter’s eyes. It’s not the viewpoint of the parents, at all. The normal car screen, still has the suit, because the viewpoint is from the daughter. She must had believed that her uncle, at that time, was always in the suit, but not the fast fire car crash, that her father said happen.

    Ok, I want to share this. It has a spoiler, but I'm sure nobody cares about a spoiler for the series.
    In the Boss Baby series, there's an episode where grandparents brainwash Tim with a piano song to become their slave. At the end of the episode, Tim gets rid of it. However, two episodes later the grandpas play that song again, and Tim can't even fight it before falling under their control. Tim is 7.

    I wondered when I watched this review why he used the phrase 'make love to puppies' instead of 'fuck puppies'. Now that I know he was going the whole year without saying 'fuck', it makes a bit more sense.

    I really want to see how much you hate this movie. It was one of the only movies I've ever regretted watching and I almost wanted my money back after seeing it in theaters. Even my parents hated it as well, and they like pretty much everything.

  • MississippiRailfan 2004

    The spinoff completely contradicts the ending of the move because at the end we see the baby literally quit Baby Corps and become a normal baby. But in the spinoff he’s still working for Baby Corps

    i cant believe this movie got nominated for anything at all, its creepy and not funny, it really does raise so many questions and as per usual, addresses none of them, its all made up in the mind of a child, of course he'll think the baby is plotting his demise or that other outlandish thing of ...babyco, he didnt like the explanation his parents gave him, so he made up where babies came from, this movie is told from the mind of a child, would it really surprise you to learn that nothing in the movie was real and it was the imagination of a child? he even says "back then, we had to rely on our imaginations" which is what he did! pretty sure the parents named the baby something else, but the kid refused to hear it and made up boss baby, ruining his life, a classic case of jealous siblings hating the fact that a baby suddenly gets all or most of the attention THEY got! so of course tim would act like ...ugh, boss baby had it out for him, he was the center of his parent's world, until the baby was born, opening sequence be damned :P
