If you’ve ever had an infant in the home, it sort of feels like that tiny, precious, adorable human is running the show and calling the shots. You want to sleep in? Dream again. What about showering without piercing screams? Fat chance. And eating a meal in peace? Not for the next 18 years. 

This is all normal. After all, a baby can’t help it, right? Well, certainly not in our world. But in the land of DreamWorks entertainment there’s a place called Baby Corp.—a mighty, fully functional operation run by the smallest of humans who are always on a mission to keep babies in the forefront of families’ minds.

We had the pleasure of being introduced to Baby Corp. back in 2017 with The Boss Baby. Now, the original has branched out with its recently released, second movie: The Boss Baby: Family Business.This TV-PG rated film, released in theaters and on the Peacock network earlier this month, features former baby, Ted Templeton, all grown up and wildly successful, and his older brother and stay-at-home-dad, Tim Templeton. See, the Templetons have grown apart over the years, but things quickly change as Tim seeks to connect with his eldest daughter, Tabitha, and reaches out to his brother, Ted, once he learns that his own baby is a member of Baby Corp.

This funny, animated movie centers on two brothers who learn the true meaning of family and time well spent. Yes, there is some potty humor, name-calling and slapstick humor. But the heart of this flick is filled with a message about the incomparable value found in the arms of  family.

  1. -I just saw this movie tonight in a theater and really loved it. It was gutbustingly funny and extremely sweet on family. The first one was great too, and while I’m not sure we really needed a sequel to it I’m glad they made it since I think I liked it even more than the first one.
