Night at the Museum is still an interesting premise, but the writing on this particular film was not very good.  The plot was not as engaging and the characters were not as empathetic as the original.  So although it was still a somewhat fun movie, it was disappointing.    Here are some of the reasons for the disappointment on a character by character basis:   Ben Stiller was about the same.  So this was not a disappointment, but the further development …

It featured more of the same of the first movie, but on a much larger scale. Also, Custer was hilarious.

The special effects are breath taking without compromising the story telling.

a super cute sequal to a great family movie. ben stiller is great in these films. not only is it funny but semi-historically educational especially for younger kids.

   This review is a compilation. I'm giving the movie 3 stars and tossing in some thoughts from those I watched the movie with.       My twenty-something daughter loved it, thought it was fresh and fun and she loved the long list of visitors in the film. I found the talent that dropped in to be fun and charming as well...but...the inclusion of a few of them in more than just a scene or two would have maybe made the movie even more fun.       My husband …

Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) is no longer an out-of-work loser who needs to step up to the plate. This time around he's a highly successful CEO and workaholic who needs to slow down and focus on what really matters. That means he's got to accept that his true calling is not to invent new and mostly useless gadgets (like a glowing flashlight and a super-sized doggie bone) but to be an ordinary night guard in a far from ordinary museum.     One thing that was even more evident in …

It's hard for me to grasp that the actors/comics who play Reno Sheriff's Department members Dangle & Junior are the same guys who wrote the 2 NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM movies. It's like telling me that Lenny Bruce wrote BAMBI. RENO is foul-mouthed, fast-paced, improv-heavy and most certainly not kid friendly. The MUSEUM movies are noisy but never untidy, by-the-numbers and family friendly.     But that strangeness aside, it's also amazing to me that so much technical wizardry, hard …

This is yet another family-pleasing installment in this series (Can you tell I'm hoping for more?). I thought that I preferred the first one to this one, but after watching this again, it sure does stand up. I think that it has even more laughs than the first. Hank Azaria is absolutely fantastic as Kahmunrah (sp?), and there's a battle of the night guards scene between Ben Stiller and Jonah Hill that is not to be missed.    I think that the first one has a bit more heart, but …

I had the unique pleasure of watching this movie in the Smithsonian's IMAX theater. Perhaps it was the surroundings, but I found myself enjoying the movie quite a bit. It's got a great mix of action, romance, and comedy for both kids and adults. It's the type of movie that I hope Hollywood makes more of - decent movies that the whole family can enjoy without any sexual undertones.    Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian builds upon the last movie, Night at the Museum, …

My wife and I enjoyed the original "Night at the Museum" we expected to the sequel to be typical of seconds... not quite as good. However, "Battle of the Smithsonian" bucks this trend - and in our opinion it is significantly better than the original. The plot is a bit silly - our favorite night-watchman had made it big as inventor of useless products. His new position as CEO means that he is no longer working at the museum. The museum has also undergone a few changes - namely most of the exhibits …

Pros: No nudity and no bad language.     Cons: Not enough of these clean movies to go around.     The Bottom Line: If you are not busy this would not be a waste of your money.         It amazes me how they can use computers to make things come to life time after time. In both of these movies they do an excellent job with the computer graphics. Ben Stiller who plays Larry Daley, who is the old guard at the Museum a couple …

The first Night at the Museum movie was a film I really enjoyed as, for a film that would primarily be aimed at attracting a young audience, it contained some marvellous humour coupled with stunning CGI effects. Ben Stiller is an amazing comic actor and would only be complemented by the plethora of additional comic actors supporting him in the first movie. Legends such as Mickey Rooney, Dick Van Dyke and Robin Williams featured in the first movie and made it that much more pleasurable to watch. …
