When Riley is sitting outside the Franklin Institute, retrieving the next clue by the Museum Kid, he puts a pile of papers that were previously seen under the paper he is writing the clue on, next to him on the bench. Then in the next shot, in which there is a close up of the paper that holds the clue, they are back under it. See more »
National Treasure was not on my must-watch list. but it turned out to be a most pleasant surprise. the history behind the show may not be accurate and it also has around it, an air of mystery, but it certainly was a fun filled ride with the face-paced action flicks! I'm NOT a particular Cage fan. nonetheless i had to admit he did a pretty good job as Ben Gates - slightly serious yet very witty! together with Riley, they provided the tickles that brought the audience through the entire film.
with no explicit language and scenes, National Treasure is well-suited for family entertainment! its a light-hearted film good for an evening of chilling out! the subtle love story also adds credit to the film.
