Thomas Gates, Ben's great-grandfather, is mentioned on the page. It shows that Ben's great-grandfather was a co-conspirator in Abraham Lincoln's murder. When doing more research, the conspiracy takes Ben, Abigail Chase, and Riley Poole to Buckingham Palace (which they break into). They discover a plank that has early Native American writing on it.

In order to define the rest they have to go to Ben's mother, Patrick's divorced wife. After 32 years it brings back old arguments.

Trivia

When Ben and Abigail visit the White House, Ben gets into a confrontation with a small boy. When the boy goes to leave he can be seen curling the index finger on his left hand. In another Disney movie The Kid with Bruce Willis this finger curl is a trait of the young Russ Duritz played by Spencer Breslin. This movie was also directed by Jon Turteltaub, the finger curl is a sign of annoyance. See more »

Goofs

When Mitch Wilkinson's team (with Ben's mother prisoner) are climbing the stairs to Mount Rushmore, they are looking at the traffic camera picture of Ben holding the 1st wooden carving. While they potentially could have had a copy from Ben's mother, they had the original for her to translate. See more »

Good entertainment
19 December 2007 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

I will keep it short and simple. Just watched it, paid 10$ for it, it is worth it. Not much of details as you would expect out of a great movie, not much of substance in the movie itself however the acting and the pace of the movie is so beautiful you wont think of the flaws in the intricate plans they carry out in the movie. The subtle comedy is really nice and they have kept the first movie in consideration and have not brought many new characters. It is not a movie that you would think a lot about after you come out of the hall, however you will not think anything else either while the movie is going on. I will give it 7 for the sheer value of entertainment and nothing else and of course the one liners that keep popping up which actually make you laugh.
