One review

  • Ben Stiller has become something of a commodity in Hollywood, because, like Will Ferrell, he tends to play the same role in every movie he makes. For a film like “Night at the Museum”, which is big on entertainment but has no lofty ambitions, he’s perfect. It’s not hard to see why this movie didn’t get great reviews, but the average moviegoer will probably respond positively to it, regardless of their age. It was certainly much better than I expected it to be, and I think that it’s exactly the sort of thing that would not only entertain a child, but would spark an interest in history as well, which is something few movies manage to accomplish anymore.
    Overall, this film is fun and enjoyable. It’s certainly not heady stuff, and off course this was not an award-winner, but if you are looking for a movie you can take the whole family to and have a few laughs, this movie should satisfy.
