When New York's Natural History Museum's exhibits, which come to life at night, start to behave strangely, Larry, the newly-promoted director of nighttime operations at the Museum, must find out why. The Tablet, which magically brings the creatures to life, has started to decay and the only way to restore it may be at the British Museum. Larry, who'll do anything to save his museum "family," along with his son Nick and the museum exhibits, travel from New York to London, where they must discover the Tablet's secret.
Adventure Comedy Fantasy - Like the first two films in the
series, this is an effects-heavy
adventure/comedy aimed at the whole
family though there are some action
sequences that may be too intense
for the youngest of children. The
tone is also a little heavier and
sadder this time, not only due to it
being one of the final films of co-
star Robin Williams, but also in the
story. Fans of the series will enjoy.
PROFANITY: A few miscellaneous profanities. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Some fighting and comic hits. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol. ACTION: Chases and fights. COMEDY: Banter, wisecracks, slapstick, animal and toilet gags.
Roger EbertFull Review Average ...one doesn't come to a movie of this sort expecting anybody's best work. Or at least one certainly shouldn't, because it won't materialize.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average The third installment of the Night at the Museum franchise, Secret of the Tomb, is better than its predecessors, funnier and more adventurous,...
NY PostFull Review Average But its third installment is more meh than manic, too reliant on wide shots of the ragtag Museum of Natural History cohorts striding down corridors. You get the feeling returning director Shawn Levy is ready to hang it up.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 106 moviegoers:
These are GREAT REVIEWS FROM ALL AGES, both males and females. Half (or better), loved "Secret of the Tomb." Another large percentage indicated that it was an "above average" movie, which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. Between 10% and 20% only rated it "average," which is a bit on the low side but certainly not bad, especially considering that it's the lowest review given.
