Movie: The Boss Baby
From the ads this looks terrible, and guess what? It was terrible! I know, of course, that I am not the target audience for a children's movie, but that isn't an excuse for lazy, boring offerings. Good children's movies are enjoyable by all ages. This was not. (And according to a sampling of my Twitter buddies, kids don't like it either.) It's not funny or clever or moving or... anything. It's about babies trying to destroy puppies. The puppies aren't even cute.
Availability: Streaming on Netflix.
Animated Feature Film: No! I don't watch a lot of animated features but I am COMPLETELY CONVINCED there was something better they could have nominated here.
