Night at the Museum (2006) review

I went with my nephews to see Night at the Museum (2006) this week. They are 13, 15, and 17, and they loved it! It is a terrific family action-adventure movie in the tradition of Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy. It's about a night watchman at the Museum of Natural History who discovers that all the exhibits come to life at night. It is a very clean movie which manages to be funny and exciting also. I like it because it isn't trying to be cynical or sophisticated, but instead expresses old-fashioned values in the context of a good time.


  1. My brother and I went and saw this the day after Christmas. Neither one of us were as enthusiastic as you are about it. Brother even put it on his list of the years worst. I haven't decided yet but then again, he liked RV and I absolutely hated it.

  2. I liked RV, too. Except for the poop jokes.

  3. I saw Night at the Museum and loved it. I thought it had something for nearly everyone. It had some action, a lot of humor, a little suspence, and a good kick by Dick Van Dyke. Even my 18 month old nephew enjoyed watching it for nearly the entire film.
