The two lions seen on either side of the steps down from the elevator to the secret library are not duplicates of the two lions, popularly known as Patience and Fortitude, outside the New York Public Library. Rather they are copies of the lions on the monument to Pope Clement VII in St. Peter's Basilica, Rome. They were sculpted by Antonio Canova between 1783 and 1792. See more »

We have to dance our way to the treasure.
I broke every toe of every girl that I danced with at my high school prom. Even my mother wouldn't dance with me.
You took your mother to the high school prom?

My kids and I LOVED this movie! It took me a few minutes to catch on to the tongue-in-cheek/spoof/parody character of this one. Once you get it, though, the sometimes less-than-great special effects and sometimes corny plot elements fall into place beautifully. And yes, there actually WAS a plot, complete with interesting characters, and a STELLAR cast. In addition to seeing Noah Wyle's funny side, you get to see comedy at its best with Bob Newhart, Jane Curtin, and Olympia Dukakis in roles that MUST have been written just for them. The chemistry between the Librarian and the bodyguard is terrific. Watch this one with an open mind and you won't be disappointed. HOPING FOR A SEQUEL!!!!
