In New York, unemployed and divorced Larry Daley is a complete loser. His son Nick is very disappointed with his father who is going to be evicted. Larry accepts the job of night watchman in the Museum of Natural History and takes the place of three old security guards that have just retired in order to raise some money and pay his bills. On his first shift, Larry soon realizes that everything at the museum is not as it seems as the statues begin to come to life after the sun sets. The Museum transforms into complete chaos with the inexperienced Larry in charge as he learns that an old Egyptian stone that came to the Museum in 1950 brings these statues to life until dawn. When Larry brings his son to spend a night with him, the three old guards break into the Museum to try to steal the magical stone. Larry organizes all the historic characters to help him stop the criminals and save the museum.Written by

(at around 17 mins) In the part at the beginning where Larry is getting the rules, Gus explains, "Instructions; you start with 1... 2... 3..." and Larry asks, "4?" to which Gus replies, "Are you crackin' wise?" This is a reference to the fact that Larry doesn't get past number three on the instructions before he loses them later that night. See more »
(at around 23 mins) The T-rex picks the desk, and drops it. It falls vertically. But when we see the hall in full, the desk is lying near the wall, on its side. See more »
I got to see a showing of Night at the Museum last night. I was impressed by the trailers and I got really pumped when I saw people like Stiller, Wilson, Robins, Rudd and more famous comedian actors like Gervais in it.
The movie starts out slow but picks up once Stiller's character enters the museum. Once he enters the chaos begins.
The movie has it's up's and downs. Sometimes it feels like it was trying too hard to be funny. Don't get me wrong this movie is filled with laughs such as the Stiller and the monkey slapping each others face which made me laugh my ass off. Night at the Museum felt like a pattern to me, no funny parts to little giggles and then the movie would make you laugh so hard.
All the famous faces really brought charm to the movie and I don't think it would have work well with anyone else.
Night at the Museum is a fun movie worth seeing but not a movie you will be looking back on in 10 years time.
