I have waited 4 years for this to get such a letdown? I mean, I had a bad feeling this could've been a disaster, so at least I'm happy that it wasn't terrible.
Starting with the good, I think that the animation is awesome for the most part, motion blur and depth of field really does look awesome and I don't think I have ever seen those things used before in animated films, though I don't watch many animated films, so I couldn't tell really. Though I really dislike Tina's design, her face is truly not looking well.
I love some of the music/song choices and a few of the action scenes are pretty good.
There is some nice depth about seeing people from another perspective, and it was truly interesting to see Tim getting to know his daughter better without her talking to "him".
Now for the bad:Carol is a really underdeveloped character, there just isn't much of her, I wish she had a much bigger role in this. Also, why couldn't any of the characters from the series make a return, Danny was even in the promotion of the film yet I did not see him in the film itself, what a disappointment.
I really hate that the brothers somehow are now distant from each other again even after all they have gone through in the first film and all 4 seasons of the series. I like that Theodore doesn't remember anything as it creates the right continuity after the series, but then again not a single character from the series make an appearance here.
All the family values are being relearned here once again and it just seems very cheap as if they couldn't have taught us any other values besides family and love. We clearly knew that already from the first film and series and it was done way better in those.
Most of the film follows the generic plot, and the villain isn't very interesting, easily the least interesting villain of all Boss Baby universe villains.
Also, it seems that Tim has never grown up. His dad was the easy-going type, minimally cringe and charming and Tim looked like his younger version. But I'm supposed to believe that Tim has grown up not into his father, but really, he's grown into a really goofy and plain awkward obsessive dad.
Also, this film doesn't have any subtlety or hidden smart references the first film had. The first film and series were both full of depth, but here everything is just so plain and simple.
The ending is just so basic. They tried to make this a character reunion and a pass for the new generations, but they have done it in the most uninspiring way. Especially that I have seen Dragon Ball GT: A Hero's Legacy, which is just a pure heartwarming love letter to both characters and fans.
The Boss Baby 2: Family Business is not terrible, but very underwhelming of what it could've been. I'd go as far and call this a cash-grab.
