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

I'm not sure if anyone in this film actually acted alongside anyone else, or if the performances were all cut together in the editing suite.

Doesn't have the originality of the first film and feels a little boring as such.

Amy Adams is the lone saving grace to be found herein, which is a nice way of saying she's all that kept me from pondering "to be or not to be".

One wonders if director Shawn Levy was more interested in cramming special effects into the movie than creating actual comedy.

Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian can be too cluttered and hyperactive to appreciate its broad pleasures.

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

Best of all are Azaria, a brilliant comic character actor... and Adams as the feisty Earhart, thrilled to be off on a new adventure.

Smithsonian wants to be frothy, but it can't help having a little more heart and soul than you'd expect or even require. Give it a chance, it's a fun show.

Unfunny, unnecessary and with unlimited box office potential, 'Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian' is all show and no go.

... more of the same while being slightly different and raising the stakes. It's a formulaic sequel, but it works every bit as well as the original did.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.0/4.0

With the exception of Amy Adams' performance and some excellent special effects, this sequel fails to live up to the first 'Night at the Museum' romp.

Wow, count this as one film that completely took me by surprise!
