Review: “Night at the Museum”
Run time: 1:49
I will say that if you told me Ben Stiller would be in a movie with Robin Williams, Ricky Gervais, Owen Wilson Steve Coogan and Dick Van Dyke I would expect it to be a rip-roaring comedy, but instead “Night at the Museum” is a fun family friendly movie. This is not your typical Ben Stiller movie, but he does play the type of character he’s carved out a niche for himself – bubbling guy with some sort of personal trouble.
This time he’s Good-hearted dreamer and single father Larry Daley, but despite being perpetually down on his luck he thinks he’s destined for something big. When he accepts what appears to be a menial job as a graveyard-shift security guard at the Museum of Natural History, extraordinary things begin to occur and amidst the chaos, the only person Larry can turn to is a wax figure of President Theodore Roosevelt.
I enjoyed the movie and the effects are excellent. If you have kids you’ll enjoy it, too.
And yes, we went to a movie on New Year’s Eve. Everybody be safe and have a Happy New Year.
