The Boss Baby
    2017-April-12  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    

《宝贝老板》

    Based on the 36-page picture book by Marla Frazee, this funny film features the pitch-perfect voice of Alec Baldwin as the title character.

    The film first introduces 7-year-old Tim Templeton (voiced by Miles Bakshi): an only child with an overactive imagination who believes that he and his parents (Jimmy Kimmel and Lisa Kudrow) form an ideal family unit.

    But mom and dad have other ideas, and one day bring home a little brother for Tim — one in full business suits who totes a briefcase and speaks with Baldwin’s commanding yet cordial* tones. It turns out he’s on a mission, dispatched by Babycorp headquarters to prevent an adorable puppy product launch by arch-rival Puppyco that threatens to divert* parental love away from babies the world over.

    Despite their mutual distrust, Tim and The Boss Baby must form a team in order to engage in* some industrial espionage*, leading to a clever plot resolution* that ties up any loose ends.

    Entertaining, the film also addresses universal truths about family bonds and the fertile, limitless boundaries of a child’s imagination.

    While Baldwin, who seems to have cornered the market when it comes to playing conceited* man-babies, handily crawls away with the picture, he gets solid backup from his fellow voice cast. They include Steve Buscemi as a former Babycorp executive* harboring a serious grudge*, Tobey Maguire, handling narration as Tim’s older self, and James McGrath as Wizzie, Tim’s amusingly theatrical, Gandalf-like, talking wizard alarm clock.

    Visually, there’s a retro* look and feel to the animation that plays homage* to “Looney Tunes” legends Chuck Jones, Tex Avery and Friz Freleng, while simultaneously drawing upon new wrinkles in computer animation that allow the action to follow the lead of Tim’s vivid fantasy life.

    Those nostalgic underpinnings are also nicely incorporated into the appropriately bubbly score by Hans Zimmer and frequent collaborator Steve Mazzaro.
