“The Boss Baby” is not just “the movie we need right now.” It’s the movie that we always needed, and always will need. It’s a timeless classic; it’s the Citizen Kane of movies about infant CEOs. The Boss Baby is the whimsical story of Boss Baby, a baby who is also a boss–or, depending on how you choose to look at it, a boss who is also a baby.
The film is one and a half hours of non-stop, masterfully crafted potty humor. What more could you ask for from cinema? The cast is star-studded featuring everyone from Alec Baldwin to Jimmy Kimmel. The actress who portrays Boss Baby’s mother gives the best voice acting performance by a Vassar alum since Justin Long in “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel.” It is Lisa Kudrow’s finest work.
