The Boss Baby - What You Need To Know

It made almost $500 million at the box office and introduced the world to the smartest dressed baby they’ve ever seen; it’s The Boss Baby and it arrives on DVD on Monday (July 31st). Here is everything you need to know about it...

 

Who’s in it?

Alec Baldwin voices The Boss Baby himself, while the likes of Tobey Maguire, Steve Buscemi, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow and Conrad Vernon are also on vocal duty.

 

And who’s behind the camera?

Tom McGrath, who was at the helm for all three Madagascar movies, directs, working from a script from Michael McCullers, whose credits include two of the Austin Powers movie and the forthcoming third instalment of Hotel Transylvania.

 

What’s the plot?

Right. Here goes.

We follow seven-year-old Tim Templeton, a boy with a very overactive imagination who is enjoying life as the centre of attention from his parents. Tim is therefore distraught when he is joined by a little brother, a tyke improbably named Boss Baby, dressed in a black suit complete with a tie and a briefcase.

Furious at his new rival, Tim tries to shop him to his parents, especially as he’s now discovered he’s also the head of a secret organisation of babies plotting to escape their mundane lives.

But when the baby uncovers a plot by the CEO of Puppy Co. however, Tim puts his truth-telling on hold to help save the world from the evil Francis E. Francis...

 

Does it deliver?

100%. Smart, funny and engaging, audiences have been loving it, so much so that a sequel has been ordered and is due in 2021.

 

The Boss Baby is released on DVD on Monday (July 31st) and is available to pre-order here from hmv’s online store.
