Not a masterpiece, but good entertainment with a heart
Boss Baby is not as introspectively original as Inside Out, as deep as Up, or as incisive as Wall-E.. BUT it is funny and heartwarming.
Certainly it has a lot more laughs and is more engaging than Zootopia, which I thought was well-"drawn" and had a decent story, but wasn't funny at all. I have to wonder if some of its high ratings are due to all the virtuous "notes" it hits with our society's current emphasis on social justice issues (not saying it's a bad thing, but I find that people give themes of diversity a lot of subjective credit that is not necessarily earned).
BUT I digress.. Boss Baby has plenty of quality laugh-out-loud moments, and has humor that will appeal to kids and adults alike. There were also some very tender-hearted moments.. especially the boy's bedtime routine, it was so touching. Also the babies are way cuter than real babies (which is probably one reason I liked this film, because I'm not a big fan of actual babies).
