As far as its Rotten Tomatoes score goes, The Boss Baby: Family Business is no Black Widow. What it is, is another Boss Baby. As in -- the score for The Boss Baby: Family Business is 53%. That isn't stellar -- but it certainly doesn't mean it's box office poison. After all, that's the exact score that The Boss Baby has -- and that movie managed to earn more than $500 million globally, and earned not just a sequel (this one!), but a TV series on Netflix that ran for four seasons, keeping the property basically perpetually in the pop culture zeitgeist.
The Boss Baby: Family Business will be in theaters on Friday, with a same-day release on Peacock. You can read the official synopsis below.
