Unfortunately even these innocent franchises can strain the tenuous chord of likability they have and I'm afraid that is what Night at the Museum 3: Secret of the Tomb has done.

Proving a third visit isn't always a good thing, "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb" is a film that feels like it is stuck in idle.

Not only are a large proportion of the gags repetitive, but they're also delivered by actors who are simply phoning it in.

This fairly entertaining kiddie comedy is full of funny little asides and exchanges that keep the pace going.

Secret Of The Tomb -- not as good as the first movie, but not as bad as the second one either -- attempts to recapture the purposefulness of the original movie, where there was a sense of a quest.

If only we cared more, this might still be OK, but we don't, thanks largely to a noticeable decline in the writing.

Despite its change of venue, "Secret" covers all the ground trod in the original but loses any sense of wonder.

Secret of the Tomb feels a little lightweight on the story end. Most of the narrative is pretty linear, and it feels even thinner than its 90-minute run time.

The feeling upon the closing credits is one of relief; with the plot nicely tied up, hopefully Shawn Levy gets the hint and finally moves on to try new things with his career.

As if to make amends for the dubious ethics of the previous sequel (why did Ben Stiller get to decide 'his' museum exhibits were more worthy of life than the ones in the Smithsonian?), this supposed series finale has something of a wised-up, elegiac tone.

You may not find many original moments in the corny humor of "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb." But, you will enjoy time spent with old friends in this third and final film in the series.

If you keep it busy enough, people won't notice how slapdash the plot is.

...sporadically entertaining yet ultimately disappointing...

It's hard to imagine a more wearied looking ensemble this year than these folks.

Liked the first two NATM films? Then guess what? Director Shawn Levy and his producers knew better than the mess with a formula that works and so have delivered more of the same...Throwaway fun.

The core charm of the series has always revolved around fusty old museum exhibits coming to life after opening hours, and the novelty still hasn't quite worn off.

The appearances of Robin Williams and Mickey Rooney (who have both since died) adds extra poignance to a film that pretty much follows the contours of its predecessors.

Larry and his crew head for London and more slightly laboured mayhem, with slapstick gags that seem designed for younger viewers.

I wept for for Teddy Roosevelt, Mr. Robin Williams. In one of his last screen appearances, there's moments when it feels as though he's saying goodbye to us.

The movie is dedicated to Robin Williams and Mickey Rooney (who also makes a return appearance), which isn't a bad way for a franchise to go out.
