Clever, charming and with enough fire-power to hold the attention and raise a chuckle, Night at the Museum 2 hasn't strayed far from the winning formula of simple story and complex CGI set down by the first film.

This followup to the 2006 smash takes all the elements that worked in that film and adds some new layers that makes this even more charming and family friendly.

This is one lazy movie, and little more than an obligatory response to a 2006 box office bonanza.

The silliness meanders wildly, and Stiller looks like he's more than happy to let everyone else do most of the work.

...what the heck, it's fun on the same level as the original...

Amy Adams adds plenty of welcome 'moxie' (and a tight pair of aviator's britches), but otherwise there's not much here besides noise, chaos and monkey-slapping.

With all the oversized personalities that surround him, Stiller gets upstaged.

Stiller has a look on his face as if he knows he's participating in total garbage.

It was fresh, funny and clever the first time. Now, not so much.

The result is pretty much a free-form traffic jam in which everyone fights everyone else.

an amusing concept that still holds some charm now, although it also lends itself to bombastic overkill, which sequels are naturally inclined toward anyway
