Tim Templeton and his little brother Ted are now grown men and must revert to their baby forms to stop a wacky genius from executing a sinister plan which involves taking all the parents in the world out of the picture.
Even though the animation is colourful and vibrant, this sequel just ends up having everything that made the first movie easily forgettable.
Alec Baldwin returns as the genius baby in adult form. His relationship with his big brother Tim is now strained and they both get the surprise of their lives when they find out that Tim's last daughter, Tina, is also a talking baby genius.
Tina informs her dad and uncle about a ploy by a deranged innovator at her sister's school and together, the brothers go on a quest to foil the plan, learning to bond again.
The voice acting is okay, the animation cool, but the outrageous comedy just gets in the way. Almost everything is exaggerated and the pacing almost too fast to let the viewer soak it all in.
I enjoyed Baldwin's vocal portrayal of Ted and Jeff Goldblum as the antagonist. Other than these, The Boss Baby: Family Business doesn't have anything outstanding to offer.
I admit that I laughed a few times but the plot and everything going on was just so silly that I didn't connect with it. Young children and maybe some teenagers will like this but a lot of adult folks will find it a bit much.
I didn't see any need for a sequel after watching the first one and having seen this too, I can say I was justified. On the whole, the movie doesn't work because almost everything put in it is too distracting to make a coherent whole.
