Comedy Action Adventure - This is an effects-laden adventure/comedy for the whole family. Some scenes may be too intense for younger children, but on the whole this one safe for young and old. Fans of Ben Stiller's more edgy work may be disappointed, however.

Critic's Review Heading

USA Today Full Review
Average A daytime field trip to a local museum with a droning guide beats the tedium of the strangely lifeless Night at the Museum. Though the premise is clever, this movie doesn't make the best comic use of the concept. The talented comedic actors have some funny lines, but they also have plenty more that fall flat. The only consistently humorous character is the museum's inarticulate, pompous director

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Larry Daley (BEN STILLER), a down-and-out dreamer whose imaginative ideas have never paid off, finds himself in desperate need of a job. Larry has always believed he was destined for big things. But he has no idea just how literally gargantuan and hairy a challenge he will face when he grudgingly accepts the supposedly menial graveyard shift as a security guard at the Natural History Museum. On his very first night on the job, Larry is handed an over-sized flashlight and a dog-eared instruction manual, then left all alone in the eerily quiet, cavernous museum. At least, he thinks he's alone.

But wait, what's that noise? To his utter astonishment and disbelief, Larry watches in shock and awe as, one by one, the primeval beasts and storied icons that surround him stir magically to life – and total havoc ensues. Now, as Tyrannosaurus Rex and Attila The Hun carve a swath of destruction through the marble corridors, and lions and monkeys prowl the fragile exhibits, Larry is at a loss as to how to get the museum back under control. At his wit's end, Larry must recruit the help of historical heavyweight Teddy Roosevelt (ROBIN WILLIAMS) just to survive the night. Facing the possibility of losing his job and letting down his son Nick yet again, Larry must wage an incredible battle to save the museum, hoping to become at last the bold, adventurous dad he's always wanted to be. The man who's been forever waiting for his moment of greatness – just found it.
