NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM-2006
A divorced, pitiful wreck of a man finally gets a job as a night watchman at the Natural History Museum in New York City. Little does he know that a special Egyptian artifact lets all the objects, animals and cavemen come alive at night.
This is the best of the bunch and it’s quite funny even though some people would love to punch Ben Stiller in the face...I’m not one of them but my hubby...insert eye roll. I love Robin Williams...who doesn’t and I don’t want to know if you don't like him. When the 3 old guys ran up the stairs, Mickey Rooney and Bill Cobbs needed a double but Dick Van Dyke did it himself.

Oh, I loved this film, great fun! I saw the sequel too. Yes, Robin Williams was great as Teddy Roosevelt! And Dick Van Dyke as a baddie...who would have thought?ReplyDelete

Yes, it was funny, but I've seen it in bits and pieces. Someday I need to sit down and watch it all the way through at one time.ReplyDelete
This was a fun movie and enjoyed the whole series, which I didn't expect to. The latest Jumanji has a lot in common with this film - they are both just fun.ReplyDelete
I've seen them allReplyDelete
I saw part of it and the second one. Although they were good, I am not much into comedies. If I had actually seen the entire films, instead of bits and pieces, I might have appreciated it more. At least I can say I saw it!ReplyDelete
Hi Birgit - I rather enjoy this film ... complete light relief - yet imagination can take over ... good to read about it again - cheers HilaryReplyDelete
Robin Williams was good. I was glad T.R. and Sacagewea got together in the second film. Yeah, I'm a sucker for a good love story.ReplyDelete
I know about this film, but haven't seen it, perhaps because I grew weary of Ben Stiller over the years. However I do like Carla Gugino whom I just finished watching in the sci-fi TV series Wayward Pines. I highly recommend it.
How about that Dick Van Dyke? A master of physical comedy and slapstick, Dick has stayed fit, trim and nimble all his life, outlived his brother Jerry, outlived MTM, Rose Marie, Morey and Richard Deacon. Dick is age 92, and Carl Reiner is also still alive at age 96!
Thanks, dear friend BB!
I enjoyed the 1st and 3rd, second was a bit meh. Van Dyke is sure pretty spry still. Anyone who doesn't like Robin Williams we ignore too hahaReplyDelete
Cute movie. Not a favorite, but I did enjoy it. I have great respect for Robin Williams. Miss him.ReplyDelete
Never saw this although wanted to. Should check out our library.ReplyDelete
Fun movie! I liked the third one too.ReplyDelete
I've just caught bits of pieces of this one.ReplyDelete
I can see Dick Van Dyke taking on the stairs:)
Hope your weather is filled with sunshine soon.
Night at the Museum is a fun movie series. Just so you'll know I like Robin Williams and it makes me sad that he killed himself. What a tragedy! Anywho, great movie pick for this prompt.

Not a great movie, but it sure is fun. I enjoyed it a great deal when I saw it. I was glad to see an old favorite, Mickey Rooney, in it.ReplyDelete
Tossing It Out / Battle of the Bands
Never saw this one, nor the third installment, but I saw Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian and liked it. And I've always liked Ben Stiller, although I know some people who can't stand him yet can't tell me why. It's kinda like my sister, who can't stand Jason Alexander and won't watch any movie he's in. I asked her why, and she saw him in a couple of roles where he played an unsavory character (like Phillip Stuckey in Pretty Woman) and now, she hates him. Of course, I pointed out that he was just playing a role and if he could make her despise him, all that meant was that he was a good actor, right? But she doesn't care. She won't watch him.ReplyDelete
I saw this one years ago and I remember it was fun. I never bothered with the sequels though.ReplyDelete
I have to say I love all the Night at the Museum films - they are just so much fun, and the only thing I find really annoying is Ricky Gervais, but then I believe that is the point of his character :)ReplyDelete
