The Boss Baby

As every older sibling can attest to, it's tough when a new baby comes to town; especially when the newcomer dons a suit and tie and is ready to take over the house. The Boss Baby is an animated comedy inspired by Marla Frazee's hilarious picture book by the same name and is sure to be the comic relief every family needs. The movie boasts a star-studded voice over cast including Alec Baldwin, Steve Buscemi and Lisa Kudrow.
