College mentality must have been the target. Utterly silly. Can't stand Ben Stiller or any of his movies.

Based on the 1993 children's book of the same name by Croatian illustrator Milan Trenc and directed by Shawn Levy in 2006, this 110-minute fantasy-comedy shows a fascinating and amusing tale of the museum-wonderland.
It is a totally enjoyable entertaining piece with excellent visual effects.

Battle of the Smithsonian is the sequel to the first Night at the Museum, and Larry Daley is now no longer a night guard but the CEO of Daley Devices and he is living the life he wanted. However, while Larry was enjoying his life, his friends at the museum were not, as they were going to be transported to a different museum called the Smithsonian. The transport does not go as planned and Larry’s friends are in trouble, so it’s up to Larry to save the day, well, night again. This movie was just as hilarious as the last if not more, I really enjoyed this film and I rate it 5/5. I would definitely recommend this film.

Larry has always had big dreams about what he wanted to be and where he wanted to go in life, but things don’t always work out as planned so he ends up accepting a job as a security guard at the Natural History Museum. While on duty one night, he discovers due to an ancient Egyptian curse, at night all of the animal’s come to life and wreak havoc on the museum. This movie has a nice premise, even though some of the acting wasn’t very good and some scenes were overdramatized. Nonetheless, I would rate it 3.5/5 stars.

Night at the Museum is a movie about a man named Larry Daley, who is currently unemployed and divorced and looking for a job. When offered a night guard job at a museum, Larry thinks that the job will be easy but, unfortunately this is no ordinary museum. This movie was amazing and had many funny moments, and Ben Stiller who portrays Larry did a fantastic job with his acting. Night at the Museum is a great family movie and I would definitely recommend watching it as after watching this movie, it left me wanting more. I would rate this movie 5/5.

This movie is so funny!!!! Love Amy Adams as Amelia, and Kuhmunrah is so funny!!!!!

He does not have to be divorced. It was a little bit funny, not highly recommended.
