DreamWorks Animation’s sequel to the 2017 original, continues the story ofBoss Baby and the Templeton boys. Tim Templeton (voice by James Marsden) is now a married, stay at home dad with two girls. Brother Ted (Alec Baldwin) is a wealthy businessman.
Tabitha (Ariana Greenblatt), is seven and very involved with school. She’s growing up fast and has little time for her dad and the games they played when she was younger. Baby Tina (Amy Sedaris) is an undercover Baby Corp. agent. She keeps it a secret from her family until a crisis arises and she rips off her pajamas to reveal her little suit and tie.
Over the years the brothers have grown apart, but when Tina needs their help with a problem, they’re forced to work together. Tina has some information about a private school that her sister attends. It’s run by Dr. Erwin Armstrong (Jeff Goldblum) and requires some investigating. In order to get her dad and uncle into the school to check it out, Tina gives them a potion to drink that will transform them into children for 48 hours. The scene with the men swigging from a baby bottle, with every mouthful they take reverting them back to childhood, is quite funny. They’re resisting and fighting with each other at every turn.
The storyline is a bit jumbled, but the non-stop action and frenetic fun makes up for it. Kids will be entertained by the silliness and great animation and adults should be amused by the characters, especially Goldblum as the slippery schoolmaster and Sedaris as Baby Tina. It also has a strong message of the importance of family that is both sweet and a welcomed addition.
