      5 of 5 stars for comedy movie Night at the Museum, Battle of the Smithsonian (aka Night at the Museum 2). If you have not yet seen Night at the Museum (#1), stop reading this review and go watch it--a funny movie! This movie continues the story from #1 with the same basic characters and adds a few new characters including a mondo-bad-guy. I am very happy to have Ben Stiller continue in the lead role of Larry and Robin Williams plus Owen Wilson in the roles made famous in #1. To this mix, we add a new "girl friend" for Larry and Hank Azaria as the big bad guy. The story starts out with all of our friends from the National History Museum being moved into storage at the Smithsonian complex. Not good. They happened to also store the magic tablet along with the other exhibits. Fun in the store room begins and various things/people come alive at night. Lots of fun on a much larger scale than #1. I won't spoil any of the fun, but, let me tell you my favorite scene is the entire Air & Space Museum at Smithsonian comes alive and they try to launch/fly everything within; wild! Very well made movie with great effects that are subtle. Fun plot, well acted and a good time for the whole family. I highly recommend this movie--however, you gotta watch the first Night at the Museum movie before watching this installment! 5 of 5 stars for comedy movie Night at the Museum, Battle of the Smithsonian (aka Night at the Museum 2).

      An Okay follow up POOR DVD PACKAGE

      I like, not love the original 2006 film. An original idea. What brought it down was Ben Stiller doing his normal Ben Stiller role & Owen Wilson. The 2cd film. It is an okay follow up. Once again, Ben Stiller & Owen Wilson I just do NOT like. The plot, you can follow it. But, we have cheesy unnecessary scenes, cut aways. The Star Wars fan & collector I am the brief Darth Vader bit could have been MUCH better, Oscar the Grouch was good. Here we go with casting. Hank Azaria the main villain. Sorry, I did NOT buy it. How many times has he done a weird foreign accent for a film? Too much. Been done so many times. They needed another actor. Nope, I did not buy him in the role, a waste. The character make have worked better with another actor. Now, I think Amy Adams did a good job as Amelia Earhart. This role I bought. Plot holes in SEVERAL PLACES. Like when Amelia & Larry bring the characters back to the original museum at the end. We only saw a few characters but yet when we see what happens when they get back the whole crew is back. You could see the end of the film from a mile away. Once the day was saved we knew what would happen. Only time in the 2 films I liked Ricky Gervais character was at the VERY END of this film. Notice Larry’s son Nick did NOT really age or get bigger between films? Enough with the bit with the monkey now monkeys battling Larry huh? Seen it before, got old in the 1st film. As for the DVD package. A horrible, these new, cheap plastic cases with holes in them. Who thought these up? NO chapter search list, no printed information of any worth inside. Normal extras on it. A good try, does NOT hit the bulls eye, not close. Just an okay, passable effort.

      A lot of the time when it comes to a movie sequel it fails in comparison to the original. However, this was not the case for Night of the Museum 2. I really enjoyed this movie. I thought they build upon what they did in the first movie and did a good job of setting up a new storyline. This movie is chocked full of good actors and great special effects. It continues to have the heart that was shown in the first movie. I thought this was an excellent movie and I am glad they continued on with the series. Well worth the purchase and watch.

      A worthy sequel - Battle of the Smithsonian

      If you liked Night at the Museum, you'll like Battle of the Smithsonian every bit as much. They managed to come up with a workable plot theme to get into a new museum with the same "problem" as the one in the original movie. There are plenty of new quirky memorable characters as well as some old ones. I still laugh every time I think about Kahmunrah and Brundon. I was a little disappointed that Ricky Gervais completed every last one of his sentences, but he was still quite funny. Again - this is more of the same without feeling like a retread. Enjoy!

      We bought this movie with the idea that it would be similar to the first one but taking it up a notch; However, this one was almost exactly like the first one. Put both movies side-by-side and you can't tell 'em apart. This one did have some better special effects and the jokes were a touch funnier, but outside of that it's pretty much the same thing. If you haven't seen the first one, then I'd recommend picking it up. Otherwise, you can get the first one and you won't really be missing anything.

      I love night of the museum!!!! I love Ben Stiller. He is SO funny. Amy Adams was good too. The actors look SO realistic and the movie is the best. Even though there are some of the same characters from 2006, they will never get boring. It is one of the FUNNIEST comedies yet. It is totally worth your money and you should really get it if you are looking for a comedy like this one.

      I thought this movie would mostly be for kids, but I think I laughed as much if not more than the younger folks around me. The CGI is good, the plot is neat, and Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, and Robin Williams deliver the goods. . It's nice to watch a good film for the whole family once every so often. It makes you feel like a kid again, without a care in the world.

      At the time, my wife and son were wanting to see the newest Night at the Museum in the theaters, but they were all sold out for the showtime we wanted. Went to Best Buy to pick out a movie for a night at home, and we found a great deal on this. Cheaper than the theater...plus we own it now. We will wait for the newest one to come out on DVD/BluRay.
