    Well my theory is that after they ask him about having a baby brother he falls asleep and most of the entire film was a dream except when he wakes up and when he misses him the boss baby returns and the evil hinch man reprasents either his grandma or his aunt while his his parents are at the hospital and when the boss baby returns his parents are with him to.

    How can you not tell when we're in Tim's head and when we're not in this movie?! In Tim's head: Everything becomes fantastic, a LOT of colors often become more neon/cartoony than they already were, Tim is in command of machinery and weapons no kid would be allowed... Etc. When we get pulled back to reality, music changes, colors subdue, Tim's "weapons and machines" obvioulsy become plastic toys... D:< I hate to say it, but how could anyone NOT notice that?! Also, learn how to put yourself into the mind of a 5 year old kid for the viewing of kids movies instead of silencing your inner child with an adult mind... That's the only way these films work. Plus, the design work put into Boss Baby was great. I even got the art book because of that. Next on my list is to get the art book for Coco...

    I've loved you for years critic, but how do you not know what's going on? It's really not hard to follow. The scenes with multiple parents is him remembering the multiple days that they did those things for him. It's a story of a single kid no longer being the single kid while being told from the his imagination. It's just shenanigans throughout the movie....

    i liked this movie.
    a lot of it was metasurrealism and doesnt logically make sense, like the suit thing
    but neither was tom&jerry or TMNT


    the baby wearing a suit wouldn't be outlandish. parents dress their kids up as little adults all the time

      if you note the toys in his room as the camera cycles around it shows you what happens in the movie. the last thought he had was where do baby come from and he dreamed of a reason, and what a new babied do to his family. he seven thus the plot holes, his mom clearly being pregnant.

    The first trailer made this movie looks like a huge metaphor on how a baby literally becomes the boss of the family despite y'know being a baby, it seemed like a good idea, but thanks to the other trailers this movie instantly ruined itself

    If those puppies won't die of old age, they would probably die of diseases or stuff like that.
    Because one day, their owner dies.
    And then they'll become one of those dogs that live on the street and get rabies.
    So let's not make those kind of dogs.

    Really, the point of this one sent waaay over my head. What was the point? A baby that acts like a boss? What the heck? I guess at the press conference someone must have loaded their cups up with marijuana laced water and stood pack to watch the action happen, only to come out perplexed that it was actually greenlit.
    Also, 8:08. I'm laughing and cringing so hard that I feel my eyes are going to pop.

    Is this what HollyWood has really become?...I honestly find it ridiculous I don't watch much pg13 (unless it is a true beautiful emotional story or Marvel or something action filled without being too cliche or having that "love inerest" because that apparently is what people in Hollywood see as "the only love"or something...) I prefer seeing Disney and Pixar mainly because those never let you down with movies that punch you in the gut with feels and pull out your heart strings but in the end you are so moved...yeah that is right I watch animated films or/and cartoons even though I am "almost an adult"(I have 7 career ideas and I do need to start looking up on colleges and my parents think I don't care...HA! I have been having dreams and plans ever since I was little in kindergarden) because DANG IT I love them! They have shown me there is more that meets the eye and a treasure that is hidden which you must search for...Gravity Falls was the thing that actually got me to become a REAL ANIMATION NERD.___.
    But have you seen Song of the Sea?...because good night I fell in love with the film...WHY DIDN'T THAT GET NOMINATED AND WIN AN OSCAR AWARD...I already know though. But...this...why...I just couldn't help but to over analyze this parents (as usual) told me to stop and just watch the movie... *sigh * ...if I am puzzled about something it is because I am looking for its complexity-and I am talking too much again...why can't I just be normal?...
