    The opening of this movie actually proves it was most likely all his imagination because all his toys represent what happens in the movie.

    I loved this movie. I really liked Tim's constant fantasies that blend with reality in a way that you never know what's real and what's not. Remember being a kid? Apparently not. The movie tried to remind you but it's been too long and you can't let go of your grown-up pants. Maybe try it again with acid?

    So one thing I really like about Boss Baby is the use of the unreliable narrator. You can't take things at face value because they are filtered through the imagination of a young child. Plot holes are a big part of that narrative style. The way they did that here was pretty good in my opinion. You doc them for everything that doesn't make sense and, granted 7 is a bit old for it but, of course there are holes in it, and those things that make you doubt whether or not any of this is real is clearly intentional. Is it confusing? Yeah, but it fits the narrative.

    Also, movies nowadays are the reason for why I stopped watching TV. Its the same predictable crap. I mean seriously...why a Horror film (Happy Death Day 2) in a Not-October season? I give up on Hollywood.

    Man this is a creepy weird movie. Like, do they ever explain whether any of this really happened or was it all in Tim's head?
    Btw now you do have a third and best option for creepy sun faces, in Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty where it seems the head of Christopher Lloyd is the sun. :)

    Yet another interview that doesn't point out the vault monster sized plot hole of the villain's motivation.
    If being lactose intolerant made him not a baby anymore then why did him falling in a vat of that same formula suddenly make him young.
    Also the puppies were still sold just not distributed by rocket.
    The puppies didn't disappear.
    They still have receipts so UPS could just deliver them.
    So boss babys plan still failed.

    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.
