I only want to see babies as one thing (cute and innocent) and Alec Baldwin isn’t one of them =P
You just know this movie is going to be 90% bad baby jokes. The jokes Rugrats avoided for being too cliche. There’s going to be oodles of over the top reaction shots, frantic camera zooms and pauses followed by sudden activity.
And of course, the Dreamworks Sneer™
This all coming after Storks. Don’t get me wrong, Storks wasn’t blindingly brilliant or anything. But it was fun and did avoid a lot of stupid, obvious baby humour instead opting for unexpected jokes which actually worked (wolf submarine).
Man, Storks made me laugh so hard.
I try to be open minded with these things. I want Boss Baby to surprise me and be something funny and good, but dammit every time I see those posters I just want to punch him.
THIS MOVIE MAKES ME WANT TO PUNCH ANIMATED BABIES, AND THAT IS NOT OK.
