Is It Any Good?

This spin-off of The Boss Baby franchise has moderate peril and a dose of crude humor, but entertains with some clever laughs. Boss Baby: Christmas Bonus surprises with a sprinkling of political satire borne out of real labor-movement issues, while serving up funny characters like Dongle (Ray Chase), the elf with the Russian accent -- a foil to the capitalist Boss Baby, perhaps? Add a Gen Z character named Noth Pole (Ben Lepley), who resells Christmas list letters to Japanese buyers, and you've got some meat for adult viewers to sink their teeth into.

Kids who like the Boss Baby series will probably enjoy this Christmas series more than non-fans. There are definitely top-shelf holiday offerings to be had elsewhere, but in keeping with the Boss Baby's attitude, it's better to have some shelf space than none at all.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
