Synopsis
In the sequel to DreamWorks Animation’s Oscar® - nominated blockbuster comedy, the Templeton brothers—Tim (James Marsden, X-Men franchise) and his Boss Baby little bro Ted (Alec Baldwin)—have become adults and drifted away from each other. Tim is now a married stay-at-home dad. Ted is a hedge fund CEO. But a new boss baby with a cutting-edge approach and a can-do attitude is about to bring them together again... and inspire a new family business.
 
Tim and his wife,Carol (Eva Longoria), the breadwinner of the family, live in the suburbs with their super-smart 7-year-old daughter Tabitha (Ariana Greenblatt, Avengers:Infinity War), and adorable new infant Tina (Amy Sedaris, Netflix’s BoJack Horseman). Tabitha, who’s at the top her class at the prestigious Acorn Center for Advanced Childhood, idolizes her Uncle Ted and wants to become like him, but Tim, still in touch with his overactive youthful imagination, worries that she’s working too hard and is missing out on a normal childhood.
 
When baby Tina reveals that she’s—ta-da!—a top secret agent for BabyCorp on a mission to uncover the dark secrets behind Tabitha’s school and its mysterious founder, Dr. Erwin Armstrong (Jeff Goldblum), it will reunite the Templeton brothers in unexpected ways, lead them to re-evaluate the meaning of family and discover what truly matters.

The Boss Baby: Family Business is an animated family film by Dreamworks Animation, a sequel to the astoundingly Oscar-nominated predecessor The Boss Baby that was loosely based on Marla Frazee's book of the same name back in 2017. It explores the world of BabyCorp, coexisting in the sky, formulating the segregation of babies raised by parents or sent on a mission down to earth quite much like a factory system.

Set 40 years after the events of the first film, both Ted and Tim are now fully grown adults. Ted is a high muck-a-muck CEO while Tim, married to a professional bread baker, Carol, tediously cares for his two daughters as a stay-at-home dad. It is safe to note that family relationships are evidently the nemesis of the plot. 

One day, Tina (Tim’s supposed infant child) divulges that she is in fact an agent for BabyCorp, strategising a plot to reconnect her dad and uncle with a baby formula concocted to reverse one’s age. She is on a mission to track down Dr. Armstrong, a principal at The Acorn Center, who spreads the philosophical ideology that parents are merely baggage that hold children down. His ultimate plan is to get rid of every parent so that they cannot tell their children what to do anymore.

Family relationships aren't always as straightforward as they appear. Ted and Tim's preconceptions piled up, regardless of whether they were correct or incorrect. Their fraternal connections were a waste of time, with their clashing egos a constant problem. They had to go through a lot of setbacks and hard patches to figure out what they were up against. Not only is Tim's relationship with his brother strained, but he also has another to restore. 

Typically, the cinematography aspect is a classic that you'll immediately recognise in a DreamWorks Animation production. The vast majority of those who have watched their films can attest to the fact that they never fail to impress.

​​Being a baby isn't exactly rocket science but this movie certainly made it seem that way. Whenever I see movies like this, I find myself wondering, "What if scientists are audacious enough to explore these ideologies in the next few years?" But, hey, it wouldn't be proper, would it? There are numerous aspects of psychology and physiology to consider. I say keep the babies cute and innocent. There are far too many problems in this world and watching cute babies play brightens our day! 

Directed by Tom McGrath, the film features the voices of Alec Baldwin (Boss Baby aka Ted), James Marsden (Tim Templeton), Amy Sedaris (Tina Templeton), Ariana Greenblatt (Tabitha Templeton), Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow, Jeff Goldblum, and Eva Longoria.
