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.

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...

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.

... 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.
May 29, 2009
Wow, count this as one film that completely took me by surprise!
May 29, 2009
... A pleasant enough way to pass 100 minutes on an uneventful weekend afternoon.

After a slow start, a great deal of fun.

Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian is that most rare of exhibits: a sequel that's actually better than the original.
May 28, 2009
The special effects are astonishing, the spirit of a "can do" America suffuses the enterprise, and it's superior to its predecessor.
May 28, 2009
It's a gag-packed, fast-paced, FXladen romp which will provide plenty of entertainment for all ages. Great stuff.
May 27, 2009
I was surprised by how funny and well-made the sequel is, especially for a "family film."
May 26, 2009
It's a collection of some of the most interesting figures throughout history and some of the most talented performers we have working today.
May 26, 2009
This is a family comedy that will entertain the kids and amuse the grown-ups. It's also a rare Hollywood sequel that's better than the original.
May 25, 2009
Stiller helps bring a new group of characters to life and they in turn bring this franchise to life again. Adams and Azaria shine.
May 24, 2009
All up it's Levy's best work so far and while I realise that's faint praise, it's far from being damning.
May 23, 2009
More engaging and better-paced than its predecessor, relocated to the world's largest repository of history, art and pop culture, the sequel ups the ante on all sides to deliver delightful family fun.
May 23, 2009
They fixed everything I found wrong with its predecessor, so I can only assume the filmmakers read my review and addressed my concerns point by point.
