Released on May 22nd of this year - it's the sequel to very successful blockbuster hit
of 2006 - starring Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Robin Williams, Hank Azaria, Amy Adams, and
a huge ensemble cast. In the first movie, our protagonist, Larry Daley, played by Ben
Stiller becomes the night watchmen at New York's Natural History museum, where the exhibits
literally "come alive" at night. Fast-forward a couple years for the plot of this sequel,
and we find that Larry's old museum pals are being shipped away to live in storage - underneath
the National Mall, in the Smithsonian Museum archives. Larry has to travel to Washington
DC and do battle with the quick-talking and goofy Pharoah, Kahmunrah, played brilliantly
by Hank Azaria, for the mystical Golden Tablet that brings all of the exhibits to life.
I hadn't seen the original until yesterday - so watching both movies back-to-back was
a real treat. Ben Stiller is refreshing in the only role he is able to play well - the
slapstick hero with a heart of gold. Although dreadfully underused, each and every member
of the supporting cast does their share of bringing in the laughs. Having nearly every
actor from the original movie reprising their role in this bigger and more adventurous sequel
is always a great recipe for a successful movie. The character's developments from the
previous film felt organic, and the new problems presented didn't seem like the usual "Hollywood-Money-Grubbing-For-A-Sequel",
like we've seen in many other franchises. I felt that bringing the action to the Smithsonian
was a great concept, allowing for many fun and exciting character additions. And as this
is a family movie - I think this strategy worked wonderfully - the action is nearly
non-stop throughout the film, with a playful lighthearted tone keeping everything kid-friendly
for the 105-minute run time. Unlike the first film, Stiller was smartly cast opposite Amy
Adams as the female/romantic lead - dutifully playing Amelia Earhart - this romantic sub-plot
gives the movie a nice foundation that I feel the first movie lacked. I wasn't expecting
to enjoy this movie too much, but I genuinely laughed and smiled more than a few times while
watching this movie - which can best be described as the ultimate kid's fantasy. I especially
loved how the film brought to life several famous American paintings - an interesting
and fun scene you can't help by smile at. Obviously, this movie's large ensemble cast
it where it really shines - but I couldn't help but feel this is also where the movie
failed. Many of the characters - especially the trio of villains Kahmanrah enlists to
help him retrieve the tablet - seemed woefully underdeveloped and poorly utilized. There
were several scenes where characters were haphazardly introduced just to deliver a single
joke, and then were forgotten about for most of the film. In contrast to the original film,
where I felt the core cast meshed very well with each other. Sadly, Robin Williams - who
was easily the most memorable character from the first film is mostly absent from this
film - making only minor appearances to close out the film.
So, it was a very fun and original family comedy that complimented the first film nicely...
but what did you think about Night At The Museum 2:
benpalm1 I enjoyed Battle at the Smithsonian, but mostly because I enjoyed relating the
movie to my own Smithsonian visit and because i was in the mood for cheesy, unintelligent
comedy. who knows when I'll be in both of those moods again?
danm966 Night at the Museum 2 was utter crap. It was such an embarassment to the first one
as many of the jokes were genarally not funny and most of the film was a slapstick comedy
mess. I think it would be a good movie for people under the age of 10. LOVED the first
one, but this is a 2 thumbs DOWN.
evillttlimp I thought Night at the Museum (both the original and the sequel) was cute.
I enjoyed watching it, and the visuals were quite impressive. Also, Amy Adams is always
fun to watch.
Alight! Well, I got some complaints last week for changing up the Rate-O-Matic on you...
so we're returning to the old format - where this rating will now reflect our collective
score. The reviews on this one movie were definitely mixed, but most of you agreed that
it was an above-average movie - so it receives a 7 - Cool!
