ReviewSource ReelViews
Review With a cast featuring Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Robin Williams, and Ricky Gervais, one has a right to expect something amusing from Night at the Museum. Oddly, not only is the movie unfunny, but it rarely tries for laughs. The only jokes in the production belong to Ben Stiller, and they fail at least as often as they work. Night at the Museum isn't just not funny, it's not fun. There's some impressive computer animation, to be sure, but it's eye candy, and a steady diet of any candy becomes nauseating after a while. Night at the Museum fails to offer much in the way of sustained entertainment unless the stagnant story of a loser Dad redeeming himself in his son's eyes is likely to cause paroxysms of delight...Night at the Museum will play a lot better to children than adults. I suppose there's a upside to that. Families can attend the movie together.

Review Night at the Museum starts with a great premise: What would happen if all of the exhibits in New York's Museum of Natural History sprang to life after hours? As long as it sticks with that story and the one about the three elderly security guards pulling one over on the newbie, this silly comedy delivers...Also raising the comic stakes and threatening to run away with the movie are the three senior citizens whose frisky behavior is not exactly geriatric. Admittedly, Rooney's shtick can get tiresome, but Cobb is smooth, and Van Dyke's timing is as sharp as ever--although the fact that director Shawn Levy waits until the closing credits to let the man dance is a crying shame. Van Dyke is an artist and a living legend; let him strut his stuff...The exhibits are fantastic, creating the perfect setting for the magic that is unleashed at night...Watching the bones of a T. Rex play fetch just never gets tired.
