    I think it all has an inside meaning from Tim’s point of view the baby stepping out of the taxi is the parents and baby coming home and the meetings are how he feels like the baby takes up a lot of his parents time he feels like the baby is the boss of the family and is what dictates everything I mean that’s always a possibility that this is the whole idea of the movie

    I personally love this film... not because it's good... but because as you said it's balls to the wall insane. I personally love incredibly stupid movies that have very little reason to exist amidst my movies that have a deep and complex world around them. This film fits more into a vein along Home, and the Angry Birds movie... they suck but they do have some redeeming qualities about them as long as you don't mind the parts that are wrong with them. I go by a philosophy of everything has a redeeming characteristic... until it doesn't which can be said for many things like Food Fight for example. I can find joy in a great many things and while I Love movies like Coco, Inside Out, and such I also love stupid background noise like this one, the inconsistencies about how this world works is a problem that aggravates me much like it does in similar films where the rules around what is and what isn't are vague or don't exist, is the boss baby a real thing or a figment of Tims mind? We never get a clear answer and yes that bothers me. But then scenes like when Tim is fighting the babies for the tape are so out of the left field that I can't help but enjoy the really interesting visuals. Did this movie deserve any kind of nominations or awards? Maybe in animation as that was really good in my personal opinion but honestly, it's pretty much at the standard of modern films of its time. It didn't do something unique like Zootoopia with its fur mechanics or Moana with the Water, it just was and used an art style that is more like Sony Animation quality vs the leaps and bounds of past Dream Works films. Though in it's defense it did come from the Studio that while they created stunning stories like El Dorado and Prince of Egypt, it also created Shrek and it's sequels and Flushed Away. I personally don't HATE any of the films put out by this company but I enjoy them for different reasons.

    Basically, this movie and others like it are just simple stupid fun to pad out between true pieces of art, granted the padding is getting thicker and thicker but hopefully with the new aim of Pixar with 'no more sequels after toy story 4' and the trailers for the new Onward movie we'll see a Renaissance of 3D animation much as we saw back in the 90s with 2D animation. A real refinement of what makes a film a good film.

    Got into your channel prior to hearing about the drama, and have to say I still enjoy your reviews. The ones who provide paychecks behind the scenes I know are not always the most down to earth people. Some day soon things will be made right about all of that. Until then we all have to just do our best, and you do a great job, albeit every once in a while coming across as an egoist. The extras on the show are very charming and funny as well. Much love to you and all who you have inspired. I was a fan of Stuckmann until he became lethargic and developed a bit of industry bias. The only one I love more than you is Lindsey, and that's because she taps into my sociological, analytical side more, and because I don't know why because she isn't my type, but I want to make babies with her. Peace :)

    I've finally figured out why this isn't funny. Because the character of Boss Baby has nothing tying him back to being a baby. Babies or children that act like adults get a laugh because they behave in such an adult fashion to something considered childish or associated with children. It feels like that's what they were TRYING to go for, with making babies and puppies rivals for human affection, but when they make it out as an intense battle between parties with destructive goals, it sucks out the effect of them being babies. This, in addition to the fact that he has an adult's voice, language and pronunciation, makes the audience almost forget that the character is a baby, as his character is so strangely consistent, there's nothing unexpected that could cause any humour. If anything, it just feels like I'm watching a really short business man doing business. And that's not funny enough to sustain throughout an entire film.

    The whole story is based on a lie. His parents told him, a 7-year-old, the real answer on where babies came from and became traumatized. His daughter at the end asks the same question and didn't want to scar her like he was, so he created this crazy-ass baby corporation that makes the babies and she ends up imagining her as the new boss baby.
    That's my theory anyway.

    Yknow if this whole movie were just more apparently about the boy's overactive imagination about a new baby with the "real world" actually being normal (Like the baby isn't actually wearing a suit but he's wearing some tacky little "I'm the boss" shirt with a little tie design on it) then this movie could have been entertaining. Several parts of this seem like it could have been pretty funny imo if the movie didn't come off as confused about what was real and what was the brother's overactive imagination
