It was definitely a surprisingly great movie (by dudeangel57)
This movie was definitely a surprise with other actors making their appearance i.e. Owen Wilson . Ben Stiller was hilarious and the movie overall was great along with the special effects. Definitely a great movie that made my family laugh and totally enjoy every moment of this movie. This was one of those surprise movies that had great special effects and some great surprises and twists and the movie was definitely moving a great speed, not boring at all. Robin Williams was great as President Teddy Roosevelt. For those who think this movie was not that great have no imagination because each <more>
one of my sons ranging in age 12 - 21 loved it and that speaks for itself. I would go watch it again.
I gave it a 10 because it fit with this time of year and to bolster its score (by point_of_impact)
I just looked at the voting breakdown and was astonished. Twenty people out of 207 actually gave it a 1???!!! Undoubtedly this will have changed by the time you have voted but oh well.This movie is not meant to be a masterpiece but just a good 'ol fashioned feel good movie. It's targeted audience is none other than children and all the things that they would dream about in a museum. Given that, the action is right down on a child's level. Which is what ultimately makes the movie what it is: a good family flick. Nothing about this movie is going to make you fall out of your seat <more>
laughing but you will definitely get a good chuckle here and there.I enjoyed it, my daughter enjoyed, and I look forward to owning it on DVD.
The plot outline listed for this movie... "A bumbling security guard at the Museum of Natural History accidentally lets loose an ancient curse that causes the animals and insects on display to come to life and wreak havoc" ...is not accurate. The security guard did not cause the exhibits to come to life... it was happening before he took the job, nor was it an accident. Insects? ...maybe I missed that part as I didn't see so much as a fly.My husband and I are older patrons of the movie theatres and we thoroughly enjoyed this movie from beginning to end. It's fun to leave <more>
reality at the door of the theatre and just immerse in the fantasy. I read someone else's comment about now wanting to visit a museum and I feel the same way. Even though this movie was fantasy, I still learned a few little snippets of history that I didn't previously know.Dick van Dyke and Mickey Rooney were perfect in their roles.
This movie had it all. Comedy, action and a touch of romance. It was slightly clichéd, but there were a few unexpected twists which didn't suck it down the cliché drain.I was a bit scared, thinking this movie probably wouldn't satisfy me, and my friends and I just decided to watch it simply because there were actors we liked. However, it was all good. I think I have some serious reordering to do in my top 10 movies list.They also made things look extremely real. For example, the T-Rex. It looked very real.Overall, this was a good movie for all ages and it suits most genre <more>
There is a lot to laugh at but surprisingly no crude humor well, except for the one scene with the monkey like you see and hear in most movies. Just genuine fun for everyone. A not very subtle message that turns out to be alright as they don't beat you to death with it. I can't say anything about how long it is because I honestly didn't notice. The pace was good and the story flowed smoothly. The characters are really good and really work good together. Robin Williams is of course great as always. Not as off the wall as he can be but just right. Even Ben Stiller is more subdued <more>
than in some of his movies. He's just enough without being overpowering. And it makes you want to go to the museum, late, and stay. I won't spoil this movie for anyone because I simply liked it too much to do that. But I can hardly wait for it to come out on video! In fact I may not, I may have to go back and see it again while it's still playing in the theater.
Children that haven't seen the Robin Williams fantasy "Jumanji" 1995 may enjoy the supernatural shenanigans in the new Ben Stiller comedy fantasy "Night at the Museum" more than their elders. Like the "Jumanji" inspired space epic "Zathura" 2005 , "Night At the Museum" plunges average everyday mortals—usually a single father and his children numbers vary --into paranormal peril, but the principals don't play games in this variation on a theme. As entertaining and resembles one of its best computer-generated special effects—the <more>
rambunctious skeleton dinosaur that prefers to play fetch with one of its own bones like a dog. Meaning, "Night at the Museum" qualifies as bare-bones buffoonery that shuns literal logic for outlandish laughs. This 108 minute nonsense relies on lowest common denominator comedy with a PG rating. Ben Stiller makes himself appear suitably ridiculous as a divorced dad who wants to impress his impressionable young son. Stiller's on-again, off-again co-star Owen Wilson, best known for "Wedding Crashers," has a small role—literally speaking--but gets in a few jibes at Stiller's expense. Wilson plays a pint-sized cowpoke in a railroad diorama who clashes with an empire-building Roman centurion Steve Coogan of "Around the World in 80 Days" from another diorama. The two constantly clash with each until our sincere, underdog hero convinces them to stop fighting each other and help him with the animals. Classic TV comedian Dick Van Dyke and classic screen comedian Mickey Rooney steal a couple of scenes from Stiller as villains forged in the "Home Alone" mold. Although it relies lavishly on its special effects to compensate for its skeletal storyline and its superficial characters, "Night at the Museum" boasts more than enough breakneck adventure. Stiller gravitates between two gals, his ex-wife Erica Kim Raver of TV's "24" and an attractive museum docent Rebecca Carla Gugino of "Snake Eyes" , but the movie gives these relationships short shrift. The father and son relationship at the heart of the drama doesn't fare any better, serving largely as a plot device to advance the action. Unlike both "Jumanji" and "Zathura," "Night at the Museum" also contains armies of Lilliputian soldiers along the lines of Jonathan Swift's "Gulliver's Travels." Clearly, "Pink Panther" director Shawn Levy and co-scenarists Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon of TV's "Reno: 911" had their work cut out for them. They fleshed out Croatian artist Milan Trenc's 32-page illustrated novel, published back in 1993 by Barrons, and targeted primarily at pre-schoolers. Undoubtedly, Levy and company added the farcical scene where a small monkey urinates contemptuously on our hapless hero.Brooklyn born Larry Daley Ben Stiller of "Meet the Parents" is a deadbeat dad in search of a job. Larry is one of those crack-pot inventors who conjure up their ideas a little too late to capitalize on them. He explains to an unsympathetic job counselor, Debbie his real-life mother Anne Meara , that his finger-snapping lights failed because most people found it far easier to clap rather than snap. While the "clapper" lights proved to be a success, Larry's "snapper" lights sank out of sight. Fearful that his ten-year old son Nick Daley newcomer Jake Cherry will be ashamed of him, Larry agrees to take a lowly job as a night watchman at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. Of course, it doesn't help matters in Larry's eyes that his ex-wife's new boyfriend Paul Rudd of "The 40-Year Old Virgin" has convinced Nick to follow in his footsteps as a Wall Street bond trader. The current day watchman, Cecil Dick Van Dyke of TV's "Diagnosis Murder" , tells Larry that the museum plans to down-size security, and Larry will end up doing the work of three guards. Mickey Rooney of the venerable "Andy Hardy" movies and Bill Cobbs of "New Jack City" play the other two veteran guards. Cecil, Gus, and Reginald will retire from the museum since attendance is severely down. What they neglect to tell Larry is that the animals-on-display, the full-sized replicas of historical figures, and the finger-sized soldiers in the dioramas come alive at night. The next day Cecil enlightens Larry. According to Cecil, an ancient Egyptian artifact on the premises radiates an inexplicable power that brings these displays to life. If any of the museum pieces try to escape, they suffer the unhappy fate of being turned into powder at the first light of day. Otherwise, everything in the museum returns to normal. Craftily, Cecil, Gus, and Reginald have plans for that relic and Larry will be their unwitting fall guy. Virtually everything that can go awry in Larry's life occurs on the second night on his job, but the movie makers play it all for Keystone Kops style slapstick.Despite the monkey that anoints our hero with a golden shower, "Night at the Museum" is about as family-friendly as a PG-rated movie can get. Although the violence is unmistakably synthetic, some youngsters may cringe at the rampaging T-Rex. The special effects wizards have again broken new ground in computer-generated animation, but the animals themselves lack personality. Again, the T-Rex skeleton earns some laughs for behaving like a colossal canine. Robin Williams wears a period Rough Riders' army outfit throughout as former president Teddy Roosevelt,but he is as spontaneous as ever. Smitten by a pretty Indian maiden in a Lewis and Clark display, Teddy is too shy to talk to her until Larry coaxes him out of his shell. Chiefly, Levy and his scribes poke fun at Stiller as he struggles to outfox the obnoxious animals or befriend the historical figures. Nevertheless, everything is handled with such imagination that it is no wonder this lightweight lark coined over $574 million worldwide. Don't leave the theater when the end credits come up because you'll miss an important facet of the finale. If you enjoy "Night at the Museum," you should also check out "Jumanji" and "Zathura."
Another movie let-down by bad marketing. (by Deja_Entendu)
I came into this movie thinking that it would suck AND disliking Ben Stiller very much. But I thought, hey, free tickets, Monday night, how bad could it be? Well, it wasn't. It was much funnier and had a much better script than I had anticipated. Stiller, famous for being *in* funny situations and not making them, actually acted like a comic character, something of a cross between Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler. Usuaully he's a passive element, but here he propelled the comedy further. Great job. Also, a fantastic group of supporting characters like Gus, Mr. McPhee and Atilla the Hun. <more>
The only problem I really had was the son, who was much too perfect and pacific to be of any interest, and was, at most times, quite annoying.So all of you nay-sayers who judge the film by its previews, tut-tut to you. It's funny, it's fast, and wastes no time with kicking it into high gear. Great special effects, especially the T-Rex. Also, with the poor previews, it leaves you to enjoy the many delightful small twists and turns that keep the movie fresh.So take off that cloak of prejudice and enjoy, it won't disappoint.
Well... I laughed! So did everyone in the theater. (by mreliae)
Don't go into this movie expecting a complex plot and deep insight into the human condition. The story and plot are lightweight but that doesn't matter too much. The characters are likable enough and the situation is definitely full of possibilities. The humor is silly and well-done slapstick without much in the way of vulgarity. I especially enjoyed the antics and heroics of the miniature Cowboys, Mayans and Romans. Though my inner stickler was a tad annoyed with slight shifts in their scale. I recommend it for family viewing. My 8-year-old was in stitches AND asking me questions <more>
What a cast! Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Robin Williams, Dick VanDyke, Mickey Roney, Bill Cobbs...I'm not a Stiller fan, but in this one he was really great, he steps out of his usual shtick to really anchor this movie. For once he doesn't seem to be trying too hard and avoids overdoing it.This is one of Robin Williams' better modern roles, he's toned down but still quintessentially Williams. It was nice to see him in a role that he can both take seriously *and* have some fun with it.Owen Wilson is still awesome, basically reprising his Shanghai Noon character, but with a cute, <more>
rather unexpected twist.Dick Van Dyke, Mickey Rooney and Bill Cobbs are classic, they haven't lost a step. Rooney is still the little bantam rooster with the attitude! Van Dyke clearly anchors the trio. Cobbs wasn't given much to work with for his character, but his quality shines through. These veteran comedic actors bring a bit of class and legitimacy to the film.The movie is well paced, jumping almost directly into the action, with plenty of laughs. From Rexie's puppy-dog antics to the war between Old West Cowboys and Roman Centurians, there is something around every corner.The only stinker in this film is the kid. He's totally under-utilized for the storyline, they could have improved the storyline by either leaving the kid out of the movie entirely, or by giving him something to do. The pseudo-love-interest, too, should have either been played up or left out.This is an entirely enjoyable family film. My 87 year old grandmother-in-law loved it, as did my 9 year old daughter and my teenage sons! Truly something for everyone.
