Synopsis; In New York, unemployed and divorced Larry Daley is a complete loser. His son Nick is very disappointed with his father who is going to be evicted. Larry accepts the job of night watchman in the Museum of Natural History and takes the place of three old security guards that have just retired in order to raise some money and pay his bills. On his first shift, Larry soon realizes that everything at the museum is not as it seems as the statues begin to come to life after the sun sets. The Museum transforms into complete chaos with the inexperienced Larry in charge as he learns that an old Egyptian stone that came to the Museum in 1950 brings these statues to life until dawn. When Larry brings his son to spend a night with him, the three old guards break into the Museum to try to steal the magical stone. Larry organizes all the historic characters to help him stop the criminals and save the museum.

Night at the Museum movie 2006

Watch Night at the Museum Full Movie: In Night At the Museum, Ben Stiller plays his usual role as a good-hearted schlemiel thrust into a humiliating situation that he ultimately emerges from with a small measure of heroic dignity. In this instance, his character, Larry Daley, is an out of work weekend Dad who is about to be evicted from his apartment once again and thus lose the last shred of admiration his ten year old son has for him. To keep both the apartment and the son’s affections, he accepts a job as night watchman at a New York City Natural History Museum, where an Egyptian tablet has for some decades administered a powerful magic spell that causes history literally to “come alive.”

Night at the Museum Full Movie

Watch Night at the Museum Full Movie: Each evening, the museum’s wax and bone denizens, human and animal alike, become animate, leave their various encasements and displays, wander the museum’s corridors, and raise havoc with museum property, each other, and, of course, Larry. The human cast of characters prominently includes Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams), Sacajawea ( Mizuo Peck), Attila the Hun (Patrick Gallagher), a miniature cowboy (Owen Wilson), and an equally diminutive Octavius Caesar (Steve Coogan) while the animal crew is headed by a capuchin monkey, a tyrannosaurus skeleton, and a pride of lions. As we ultimately learn, Larry (Stiller) has been selected for the job because he seems like a perfect stooge/fall-guy for the nefarious plans of three outgoing night watchmen (Dick Van Dyke, Mickey Rooney, Bill Cobbs) he is ostensibly replacing. Night at the Museum is based on a clever farcical concept that – one might think – would serve as a perfect vehicle for Stiller’s comic persona. Unfortunately, something damaging intervened in the concept’s translation to an actual film, namely a screenplay that is short on laughs and long on predictability and sap.

Night at the Museum movie

Watch Night at the Museum Full Movie: Too many scenes in Night at the Museum fall humorlessly flat; for instance, Larry’s confrontations with the museum’s pompous but inarticulate curator. Others, like the Oprah style pop psychological healing of Attila the Hun’s inner child, are almost embarrassingly bad. The scenes with diorama miniature cowboys (headed by Owen Wilson) and miniature Roman army (led by Steve Coogan’s Octavius) are mildly amusing thanks to the efforts of the actors and neat special effects, but, again, suffer from an underwritten and unimaginative script. The scenes involving Sacajawea are completely pointless other than the riff on the pronunciation of the last syllables of her name (waya or weeya?) By the third repetition of the joke, it has been thoroughly emptied of the scant humor it contained on the first go round. And what can one say of Robin Williams’ turn as Teddy Roosevelt other than that it made one fondly recall the much funnier Teddy that stole scenes in the classic Arsenic and Old Lace? Except for one brief scene where Williams is allowed to release his inventive comic genius into a parody of African “Click” language, he is kept completely in check (and thus wasted) exhorting the Stiller character to rise to the heroic occasion, repeating Shakespearean chestnuts about having “greatness” thrust upon one, and mooning after/stalking Sacajawea with unrequited love.

Night at the Museum

Watch Night at the Museum Full Movie: Yes, Night at the Museum does evoke a few chuckles – most examples of which were included in the film’s ubiquitous trailers – but it contains surprisingly little physical humor and utterly lacks wit, unless one finds a scene between Stiller and the capuchin monkey concocted solely to justify the punch line “stop slapping the monkey” the height of cleverness. Most members of the audience I saw the film with didn’t think so, or they were too young or too old to get the joke. Which raises another issue with the film – what was the intended age group of its principal audience? Codgers who might delight in the bit parts of Hollywood legends? Boppers who might identify with the museum docent who upon meeting Sacajawea, supposedly the subject of her 900 page doctoral dissertation, is reduced to pre-verbal (“you rock!’) groupie talk. Kids needing a history lesson or amused by urine gags? No doubt the intent was “all of the above.” Unfortunately, that aim – as with much of today’s Hollywood fare – ends up reaching “none of the above” very satisfyingly.

Watch Night at the Museum Full Movie: Falling into the “Codgers” demographic myself, the chief pleasures of Night at the Museum for me were the brief opening scene played between Stiller and real-life mother, Anne Meara, and the amazingly energetic performances of octogenarian Dick Van Dyke and near nonagenarian Mickey Rooney, looking (and acting) better than he has in what? fifty years? I should also add some complimentary words for the film’s visual delights, highlighted by some stunning displays of forced perspective as well as the imaginative animation of a puppyish tyrannosaurus skeleton that enjoys playing fetch with one of its own colossal bones. All in all, though, Night at the Museum was a major disappointment.

Night at the Museum 2 Battle of the Smithsonian

Watch Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian Full Movie: There’s an old saying in Hebrew that claims that if you try and catch as much as you can, you’ll end up having nothing at all. After viewing Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, I can sadly say that the same can be said when regarding this lesser sequel to the 2006 smash hit.

Night at the Museum2 Battle of the Smithsonian

Watch Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian Full Movie: Even though most film critics despised the original movie, the first Night at the Museum was actually one of my favorite films of that year. For me, the film worked on two levels. First, by waking the inner-child in all of us and making us feel the magic Ben Stiller’s character Larry experiences once the exhibits in his museum come to life in all their glory in front of him. Second, by telling a very straight-out and heart warming coming of age story of a grown-up divorced man who has to take control of his life and get his act together (with the museum working more as a metaphor of sorts). I also related to the additional educational values the film had to offer, another theme I felt received a lesser emphasis in the sequel.

Night At The Museum 2-Battle Of The Smithsonian 2009 - Ben Stiller Amy Adams 3

Watch Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian Full Movie: In the second installment of the Night of the Museum series, much of the initial magic is already lost from the get-go. We already know the artifacts come to life and how, and the general feeling of suspense is gone. To make things worse, the whole story feels convoluted and unreal. We’re expected to believe that Larry has turned from a no-good night guard at the museum in the first film to this mega-successful businessman in the second installment during the course of only a few years (and after being a virtual nobody for the vast majority of his life). I mean come on, Hollywood – Where did the charming loser from the first film go so quickly? Stiller’s Larry is hardly likable at the beginning, and once he learns that his lovable exhibits/friends are moving to the Smithsonian museum (after the Museum of Natural History closed for technological renovation) things start happening so fast, that his motives for leaving his comfortable job to help rescue his friends are left undeveloped and unconvincing.

night_at_the_museum_2_04

Watch Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian Full Movie: The main course of this sequel is of course the special effects created by the two museum’s re-animated exhibits, with the evil Egyptian Kamunrah (The Simpson’s Hank Azaria) acting as the main villain who operates the evil Smithsonian exhibits who strive for world domination yadda yadda yadda. Some effects are cute (Al Capone’s gangsters brought back to life in black and white, the heroes entering an old painting, the Lincoln memorial rising from his chair, amongst others) and some are once again undeveloped and underused. At times, it seems so much is happening on the screen, that you don’t really know where to look or who to concentrate on. Many returning characters from the first film are outrageously underused (including Robin Williams’ Teddy Roosevelt and Owen Wilson’s Jedediah) and many comedians who are brought specifically for the film contribute blink-and-you-miss-it performances, including Ricky Gervais and Jonah Hill). The only true contribution for the film is the lovely Amy Adams (Enchanted), who portrays a fluffy re-animated Amelia Earhart who seems more lost than ever.

nightmuseum2-amyadams-03

Watch Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian Full Movie: To sum things up, I’d say that Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian may have been cute at times, but it was mostly useless, as it really didn’t add any significant notion to the elements presented in its predecessor. While that film felt like an instant classic to me, this one felt more like a quick money-grab with a lot of missed potential.

Night at the Museum 3 Secret of the Tomb

Watch Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb Full Movie: In spite of the absence of a number in the title, this is the third (and last?) film in a franchise that I have thoroughly enjoyed for providing inventive entertainment (imagine a fight sequence inside a MC Escher drawing). Each movie has been based in a museum I know well and this time we are in my home city of London at the wonderful British Museum which means that the Elgin Marbles and other artifacts come alive. At the heart of the franchise is Ben Stiller, a comic actor with deceptively understated style, and this time he gets to plays two very contrasting roles, particularly funny when his characters interact.

Watch Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb Full Movie: If there are weaknesses in this outing, they are that perhaps too many of the original characters are involved (meaning that screen time is spread rather thinly between them), there could have been more original museum characters (the main one is Dan Stevens as Sir Lancelot), and it would have been good to have more female roles (Australian Rebel Wilson as the BM security guard is effectively the only substantive one). And, of course, there is the sadness of seeing Robin Williams and Mickey Rooney in their last screen roles.

Watch Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb Full Movie: All that said, this is a worthy addition to a really fun franchise which has probably now run its course.
