Seeing a baby wearing a three-piece suit and tie, running business meetings and coupled with the strong voice of Alec Baldwin, The Boss Baby (2017) was a family entertainer and a hit. As usual, Hollywood has tried to milk the franchise by making a sequel: The Boss Baby: Family Business (2021) was the result and it was a mediocre attempt to say it kindly. The film gets a mangoidiots rating of “Raw” as kids will like the film, especially those who haven’t watched the first one. The plot was uninspirational and beyond the first thirty minutes, I found it tough to keep watching.

In the original, puppies were being created as a threat to babies, and Baby Corp had to save the world. In the sequel, Children are turned into a threat to parents worldwide and Baby Corp has to come to the rescue again. Since it has been over a decade now, both Ted & Tim have grown up as adults; so we have Tim’s daughters Tina & Tabitha initiating the narration. I would’ve loved the screenplay running with them as the main characters, instead, we see Baby Ted and the young Tim coming back and that alone made the story dull on several levels.

There is nothing that is worth mentioning about this film by Dreamworks, so you may give it a miss.
