Night at the Museum

Critics Consensus

Parents might call this either a spectacle-filled adventure or a shallow and vapid CG-fest, depending on whether they choose to embrace this on the same level as their kids.

Movie Info

A night watchman (Ben Stiller) at a museum of natural history makes a startling discovery: Thanks to the unleashing of an ancient Egyptian curse, the museum's animals, birds, bugs and other exhibits spring to life after the building closes, and former President Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams) is among those the hapless guard encounters.

Audience Reviews for Night at the Museum

  • Nov 17, 2014
    History comes alive in the family comedy Night at the Museum. When Larry Daley takes a job as a night security guard at the Museum of Natural History he gets more than he bargained for, as the exhibits come to life every night at closing. Starring Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Carla Gugino, and Dick Van Dyke, the film has a great cast. And the comedy is especially well-done, with some clever sketches and fun satire. Additionally, the story has a positive message about responsibility and overcoming adversary. Lighthearted and incredibly entertaining, Night at the Museum is an enjoyable film for all ages.

    Non-threatening. Non-offensive. Non-intersting but somehow still pleasant.

    An unfortunately dull comedy with an interesting concept but a flatline plot.

    Children may like it, but certainly all the adults would hate. Stiller's acting skill helped the film immensely but the superficial script and over used CGI didn't help it. Rami Malek on the other hand is a promising young actor that had a good performance, overally the film is a cheap entertainment for children
