Product Description

Comedy starring Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Mickey Rooney and Dick Van Dyke. Larry Daley (Stiller) is a kind-hearted dreamer who always knew that he was destined for greatness, he just never quite knew how. None of his ideas or inventions have panned out so, with a heavy heart, he takes a regular job as a lowly graveyard-shift security guard at the Museum of Natural History in order to provide a more stable life for himself and his ten-year-old son, Nick (Jake Cherry). On his first night on the job, however, he finds that guardianship of the museum is far from stable. At nightfall an Egyptian spell brings the artifacts and wax figures to life. With Attila the Hun (Patrick Gallagher) charging to war through the hallways, the diorama miniatures embroiled in a deadly feud, and a two-ton Tyrannosaurus Rex nagging to play fetch, Larry turns to a wax replica of President Roosevelt (Williams) for a little advice on keeping things intact.


An irresistible concept meets computer-generated wonders in Night at the Museum, inspired by a 1993 children's book by Milan Trenc. Ben Stiller stars as Larry Daley, an underachieving inventor waiting for his ship to come in while getting evicted from one apartment after another for lack of funds. Larry's son needs some stability, so the well-meaning ne'er-do-well takes a job as night watchman at New York City's Museum of Natural History. What the soon-to-retire guards (Dick Van Dyke, Mickey Rooney, Bill Cobbs) don't tell him is that an ancient pharaoh's tablet in the museum causes everything on display to come to life at night. Thus, Larry meets representations of Teddy Roosevelt, Attila the Hun, fire-worshipping cavemen, and Roman Empire soldiers, and learns to cope with an excitable T-Rex and man-eating, ancient animals. The film might have left things at that, but an added story element gives Night at the Museum some extra urgency and excitement, especially for kids: Larry becomes responsible for keeping this nightly miracle going and preventing anything in the museum from dying due to exposure to sunrise. Computer effects, as well as wildly imaginative costumes and makeup, help make the film appeal to the 8-year-old in everyone. Director Shawn Levy (The Pink Panther) works with a hugely talented cast, including Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Ricky Gervais, Carla Gugino, and Steve Coogan. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
It would be pretty easy to lay into a movie like this. It's derivitave (more of a sequel to Jumanji than Zaruthra, in spirit at least), it has stars being woefully underused (Robin Williams in twinkly eye mode instead of acting mode, Ricky Gervais playing the museum director just like his Office manager character) and a script which is painfully obvious at times.
Through necessity, Stiller takes a job as nightwatchman at the Museum, as the three older guards are being laid off - the museum is on hard times. However, thanks to an ancient bit of Egyptian mumbo jumbo, the exhibits all come to life at night - threatening to either wreak chaos on the city, or give Stiller his chance to shine and finally impress his son.. wonder which happens..?
But, let's admit it, I laughed at times, and stuck with it to the end. In fact, it actually took a few turns that did surprise me, and strung out a one line concept into a fairly enjoyable kids flick, with enough cameos bursting out of every scene to keep the adults fitfully amused. Effects are all passable to excellent, and Ben Stiller actually does just about enough to carry the movie through. Jake Cherry is a satisfyingly non-annoying child actor as Ben Stiller's son, I laughed at Gervais, and who knew Dick van Dyke and Mickey Rooney were still alive, never mind acting...
It's not an all time classic, but it will keep the kids amused....

Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) is between jobs. Again. His brilliant inventions are either too far ahead of their time or already taken. This is wearing on his son Nick (Jake Cherry) who at ten years old is already developing a back up plan in case his first career choice doesn't pan out.

At the urging of his ex-wife (Kim Raver), Larry decides to get a steady job to help put stability into his son's life. The only job the employment agency thinks he is qualified for is night guard at the museum. There, he will be replacing three old guards (Dick van Dyke, Mickey Rooney, and Bill Cobbs) who are being downsized due to budget cutbacks.

His first night on the job, he's in for a surprise. Between dusk and dawn, the entire collection of the museum comes to life. Suddenly, he finds himself dealing with everything from a dinosaur skeleton that wants to play catch to Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams). The animals in the African display want to eat him or take his keys. And in the diorama room, it's not Cowboys verses Indians, but Cowboys verses Romans. Larry has no clue how to deal with all this nonsense. Will he find a way or will he quit when the going gets tough like he always does?

When the trailers started showing up for this movie this summer, I couldn't wait to see this film. Fortunately, I was rewarded with a fun flick. There's lots of humor from the premise and Larry's attempts to deal with things only makes things funnier. While there are a couple momentarily scare scenes, the majority of them are played for laughs, so only the most easily frightened will be scared by it.

Ben Stiller is perfect as Larry, and the rest of the cast is great as well. I especially liked seeing Dick van Dyke on the big screen again.

My dad saw this at the cinema, (He's 79!) and absolutely loved it. He said that I had to take my kids.

It really didn't appeal to me and after buying the book, it still didn't appeal.

I rented it though so I could see what my dad was on about. It was brilliant. We watched it with our kids and my mother-in-law, (who always falls asleep watching t.v. in the evening!) and we all loved it, especially my mother-in law who stayed awake throughout and that was a miracle!!!

It just had something that appealed to everybody. It was hilarious and touching.

Don't miss it. If you do, you'll always regret it.

I quite enjoyed this movie. This was probably because Ben stiller starred in it and i find him such an hilarious actor. Another reason to why i think i enjoyed this was the superb 'unrealistic' event that happened at the museum. (e.g- dinosaur coming to life), obviously not something that could actually occur in reality, but in a movie this seems a really cool idea. Bens character was amazing upon talent of his natural comedy flare and without him this wouldnt have been a good film. I think many people would enjoy this because it's a different style film to many others, not only that it's quite family style and funny in parts too. The main thing about this is probably the storyline because it's clever and well created into a superb museum comedy/family style like film.

Let the critics carp on. I came to this movie with knowledge of some iffy reviews and definately no children to counter-balance or predudice my opinion of this film.

This film is a little gem which manages to mix verbal and sight gags in continually entertaining proportions and also manages to spoof several movie genres in the process.

Ben Stiller as Larry plays it straight throughout and the elderly trio of crooks led by Dick Van Dyke are well observed.

In a way it is possibly best to avoid name-checking the big stars involved in the supporting cast and just sit back and enjoy the film.

The inclusion of Ricky Gervais seems to me to be just opportunistic next big UK star in Hollywood type casting, and his contribution to the overall feel of the movie is minimal.

Like a few other reviwers I agree that there might have been space to develop the Cowboy & Roman sub-plot, but I expect that we may have to wait for "Night in the Museum 2" for this to happen.
