A perfect film for young kids who don't get the idea of 'success' imposed by the adults.
I regularly watch classics, award season dramas and thrillers on occasion. I wanted to watch an animated kids film for change, while the last animated film I saw was Bolt. I naturally don't get the 'not a Pixar film' argument about The Boss Baby. I enjoyed the film thoroughly. I felt nostalgic about my own lost childhood and the pressure of being 'grown up' and 'hired'. It's target audience are little kids, who I believed were thoroughly enjoying it in the cinema where I had been. It was fun, imaginative and very very cute. I don't understand why kids films have to face such a harsh criticism. It reflects a common adult attitude to keep kids under their control. Boss Baby is about the importance of a complete childhood, free from the constraints, superficiality, hypocrisy and faulty preconceptions of modern day success- oriented adults.
