Critic Consensus: While not without its moments, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb is a less-than-inspired sendoff for the trilogy.

It's all dumb, but fun.

The exhibits in this "Night at the Museum" may still come to life nightly. But their latest movie stays stubbornly inert.

Audience Reviews for Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

Even its attempt at an emotional send-off is flat like the humor and script. Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb continues to squeeze out its historical puns and adventure until there isn't a drop left, even the stellar cast, including the last act of the great Robin Williams, isn't equipped to save this film. 2/5

A poor sequel but still holds some charm.

I enjoy movies like this. Action/comedy/family movies don't come out nearly enough anymore. I thought about that on new years eve when we introduced my 3 year old to "Jumanji". They just don't make em like that very much anymore. But here is a good example of a franchise that gets it right. This is the 3rd installment of the Ben Stiller series about a museum that has an ancient tablet that makes the exhibits come to life. This time the tablet is losing it's power, so they have to go over to England to find a Pherroh(Ben Kingsley) to restore the power before it's too late. For a family movie, it's pretty good and probably my favorite of the series. Grant and my nephews all loved it, and we all agreed Rebel Wilson(or "Fat Amy" as my wife always refers to her as) stills the show. But there is something very special about this movie that I will always remember. First it's Mickey Rooney's last movie, even if he is only in it for about 10 seconds. Second, at the end of the movie Robin Williams does something that gets a very good laugh from the crowd and it made me realize something. This is the last time I will have a new Robin Williams laugh at the theater. Stupid to some, but everyone has been watching him for decades. Knowing he isn't around anymore, when you think about that it'll tug at the old heart strings. For a good time with a movie you can do a lot worse. Worth a watch, especially with the kiddos.
