Who is the Boss Baby in your family?
In my home, J. J and baby sister Joy have held the title “Boss Baby” close and near to both of their hearts. When I brought my middle son, Houston home from the hospital, JJ wasn’t very thrilled about having a little brother and made it a point to be in control of everything. However, in time he adjusted to the new member of our family, and I am happy to report they are best friends. Fortunately, when we announced that we were having a little girl the boys were both extremely excited, and now that she is here, she runs things or try’s too.
DreamWorks Animation and the director of Madagascar invite you to meet a most unusual baby. He wears a suit, speaks with the voice and wit of Alec Baldwin, and stars in the animated comedy, DreamWorks’ The Boss Baby. The Boss Baby is a hilariously universal story about how a new baby’s arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator, a wildly imaginative 7 years old named Tim.
Here are the lessons kids will learn from “The Boss Baby”
Money isn’t everything: Although, Boss Baby (voiced by Alec Baldwin) dreams of one day being promoted and having beautiful big corner offices. He realizes later in the film that it is more to life than being on top and this is a beautiful message for kids to learn.
Teamwork makes the dream work: In the film; the Boss Baby is sent to the home to fulfill a specific mission. In the beginning, he tries to accomplish it on his own. However, he realizes he can’t do it without Tim. Through a cascade of funny events, kids will see how effective the Baby Boss and Tim are at completing the mission as a team.
The importance of family: The movie incorporates a sly, heart-filled message about the importance of family in an authentic and broadly way that will appeal to all ages. After all, every family has ups and downs, but at the end of the day they have each other, and that is what matters. This message is seamlessly tied into the film, and that is why I love DreamWorks’ The Boss Baby.
