The Boss Baby - Nostalgia Critic

  • After so many requests, NC takes a look at the surprise hit that nobody could figure out, The Boss Baby. Confusing, weird, & totally insane, this is a load that needs to be seen to be believed.

    The Boss Baby is a 2017 American computer-animated comedy film loosely based on the 2010 picture book of the same name by Marla Frazee. Directed by Tom McGrath and written by Michael McCullers, the film stars the voices of Alec Baldwin as the title character, along with Miles Bakshi, Steve Buscemi, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow, and Tobey Maguire.

    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

    They named the character Boss Baby after one read of the son asking what his name was and Baldwin yelling "FUCK YOU, thats my name"

    Wait if babies stay young then we're do adults come from? Is there an adult corperation? Do babies have to go to a kid cooperation building to have their minds transferred from one body to the next? Or do adults just appear out of thin air? In which case what's the point?

    You were way too harsh on this film, Doug. While it probably didn't deserve the nomination, it's actually a pretty solid movie. I feel like for some reviews you just do it for the sake of views rather than actually wanting to say something. It's most prevalent in this review because you seem content on not giving the film a chance. The controversy this channel/the website suffered doesn't seem to have affected your core audience much, but I feel like your channel won't grow any larger, or rather, you've peaked and you might as well try something else.

    Dreamworks has a ton of bad movies, but at least they can make up or it with a ton of good ones.
    Pixar started off with amazing original ideas, but have a fairly predictable formula now.
    Illumination only has the first Despicable Me, everything else they have is crap.

    3. They made Alec Baldwin play a creepy baby
    4. Why the Lord of The Rings refrences in the movie? Dreamworks should be sued by now

    There's an anime called Katekyo Hitman Reborn that centers around a 12-14-year-old kid learning he's the next in line to be the boss of the most powerful mafia in the world so he gets a home tutor named Reborn who's sent to train him both academically and in how to be a good mafia boss. Only the tutor is a baby in a suit and fedora who uses cruel and sadistic methods of training the kid, while everyone laughs at how an infant is beating up a 12 year old, with no one knowing Reborn's a hitman in his 40's trapped in the body of an infant.
    I watched Boss Baby and got so excited when I first saw the trailer for it because it reminded me of that anime, and everyone I knew who also watched KHR went to see this movie for the same reason. So, that could've caused a few ripples in the pond of how the fuck did this get popular.
