This is a good example of Hollywood commercial calculation that actually pays off with a few entertainment dividends. It all seems very cold and calculated, and yet the film still turns out to be decently entertaining.

It's a better than average CGI-fest, more often silly than funny. But it makes some good points about courage, self-respect, and the importance of learning about history.

You know what? There are few better antidotes to intense Oscar-wanna-be releases and treacly holiday throwaways than a fun, high-concept starring 3-4 generations of comedians. Yeah, I said it.

'Night at the Museum' has a setup that's so juicy, it's easy to forgive the film when it falls short of its potential.

about as distracting and inoffensive as Jumanji before it, and heck, it might even teach kids that history can be fun!

Stiller correctly plays straight man to the army of CGI beasties, but also to some of the world's best comics.

As mindless spectacle, this is reasonably entertaining.

Night at the Museum is more amusement park ride than a walk through the halls of history, but sometimes a slap fight with a monkey is preferable to a lesson on Sacajawea.

Levy, for his part, keeps the pace brisk and the storytelling simple.

Showcasing a glittering array of comedy talent from Ben Stiller to Ricky Gervais, Night At The Museum is a rare family treat.

The computer-generated action in the museum is predictably flawless but cleverly executed to make events far wittier and more exciting than they have any right to be.
