So, This Is a Thing …

Sometimes you come across a trailer that just makes you go huh? This one definitely fits the bill. In a world full of sequels and remakes, it’s sometimes good to think outside the box but the box is there for a reason. Not all ideas are created equal and with that here is The Boss Baby:

This one is about a suit-wearing briefcase-carrying baby (Alec Baldwin). Baldwin has a great voice but I just can’t imagine him as a baby. I realize this is based on a book of the same name but not all books should be made into movies, animated or otherwise. Regardless of the voice cast they assembled here, featuring Lisa Kudrow, Steve Buscemi, and Jimmy Kimmel, I can’t quite get behind the story. It’s just so silly but kids probably won’t mind it. Maybe I’m completely off-base seeing that this was just a teaser but we’ll see. Here the baby pairs up with his seven-year old brother to stop the dastardly plot of the CEO of Puppy Co, so basically a typical plot for a kids movie. The Boss Baby releases March 31st, 2017.
