Many people thought that the premise of a baby businessman becoming the all-powerful boss of a family was a spoof of Donald J. Trump's election as U.S. President just a few months before. This was enforced by the fact that the baby is voiced by Alec Baldwin, who gained wide popularity with his Trump impersonations on Saturday Night Live (1975) during and after the election. According to director Tom McGrath, this was all a happy coincidence: the idea for the movie dated back six years before its release, when Trump had not even announced his candidacy. Baldwin was cast long before his Trump parodies; McGrath simply wanted him because he had worked with the actor before on Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (2008). See more »

I really enjoyed this film. It was imaginative, fun and just thoroughly entertaining throughout the whole time I was watching it. It had some actually genuine heartwarming moments that didn't feel manufactured like some other animated films I've seen in recent past. The animation was also just gorgeous. I really loved the look of the film, I thought it had a really nice aesthetic style and felt like a classic piece of animation that if CGI was around in the seventies, it would've looked like this. All in all, I personally loved this film. If you want something that's just plain fun, bizarre and imaginative- with a touch of warmth- I'd say check this flick out. But if you're looking for something with more of a concrete plot and a straight forward narrative, you probably won't find that here.
