Movie Review: Night at the Museum

May 14, 2007

nightatthemuseum_dvd.jpgI got exactly what I expected out of ‘Night at the Museum’. It’s a family friendly film and is good for some action, cool special effects and some laughs as well. It’s a nice light movie and it was actually a little better than I expected. It looked pretty cheesy, and although it is more for kids, I still had fun watching it.

Ben Stiller is the star and gives, like usual, an enjoyable performance. The film also stars, in lesser-roles, Owen Wilson, Robin Williams, Dick Van Dyke, Mickey Rooney and Ricky Gervais.

The special effects are quite good, and the story is good on the fantasy side of things. It’s a film about a middle-aged man (Stiller) who can’t quite hold down a good job. He finally gets a job working at the Museum of Natural History. He then soon finds out this Museum is like no other, as the exhibits come to life at night.

The movie accomplished what it set out to do by providing a couple hours of light-hearted entertainment.

My Rating: 7/10
