Night at the Museum {Movie Review}

Everything comes to life. Literally. Turns out, being a museum security guard isn't so boring after all.

Obviously, the premise of this movie is completely bogus, but fantasy is part of what makes this enjoyable. What would you do in Larry's (Ben Stiller's character) shoes? (I don't know about you, but I would flip out.) There are very blatant references to the "fact" that we evolved from monkeys. So make sure you sift that junk out, and if you watch this movie with your children make sure that they understand what parts they should not believe. There are one or two words that slip, but overall a very clean movie. It does, unfortunately, represent a dysfunctional family - what else is new from Hollywood? I did enjoy the movie, however, and do recommend that others see it as well.

Trailers found here.

2.5 out of 5 stars.

(I did find it odd that Owen Wilson was not found in any credits whatsoever on/in the movie. His character wasn't even listed in the cast. Why? I do not know.)

5-28-15 edit - so I finally heard (but don't have a source to back this up) that the reason Wilson isn't credited is because his character was supposed to be a cameo, but it tested so well with audiences that his roll was expanded ... and he didn't get credit because of some union issue.
