I remember when Night at the Museum came out in 2006, but I never saw it. I find a little hard to believe it's been about eight years since then. My mom really liked the movie from what I remember. I figured it was about time to see if it was any good.
The story begins with Larry Daley who often disappoints his ex-wife and son when he can't seem to get a stable home or career. He takes a more creative approach to life, but he decides to be "normal" and get something real. So he ends up being the night watchman for a museum.
Each night should be boring and routine, but there is a little secret about the place. An Egyptian tablet magically brings all the things in the museum to life. So on his first day, Larry meets a t-rex, Teddy Roosevelt, Attila the Hun, Sacagawea, Civil War soldiers, and many more. Larry needs to find a way to end the chaos that happens every-night.
Overall Night at the Museum was a decent film, but I didn't think it was that funny. I also thought that the story wasn't really that great until the very end. I will probably see the sequel, but I doubt it will be relativity soon.
