BOSS BABY REVIEW:Today, I went to see Boss Baby. I honestly had never heard of Boss Baby until my boyfriend told me about it, but to my surprise, it was a great movie!Plot: A baby who works for Baby Corp. was sent on a mission to Timothy's parents house to destroy Puppy Corps. new puppy design. Puppies were getting more love and attention than the baby, so they wanted to destroy the company. Before the baby met Timothy, he never knew what love meant! Although you would expect this to be about a baby destroying another company, it actually teaches us an important lesson about love (and it's also really funny).Rating:I give this movie 4 out of 5 stars, and I would highly recommend it to anyone of any age. :)
