When first introduced to Napoleon and Al Capone, Ivan the Terrible says his title is mistranslated, and he calls himself Ivan the Awesome. Although obviously meant to be a comical line, it is not that far from the truth: Ivan's title is indeed a bad translation. A more accurate form of the original Russian term, Ivan Grozny, is "Ivan the Fearsome", "the Magnificent" or "The Admirable". It is important to emphasize that, in Russian, the word "grozny" does not have a bad connotation. See more »

There is an extra scene during the credits where Sailor Joey Motorola is seen reverse-engineering Larry Daley's cell-phone. He says to his mother (off camera) "I think I'm on to something!" See more »
The first Night At The Museum movie was really entertaining as well as educational. It was exciting and fast-moving.
This one seems more like a history lesson, with deliberate historical clarifications (e.g. "Ivan the Awesome" as opposed to "Ivan the Terrible"), character descriptions, etc. inserted into the screenplay throughout the movie. I didn't enjoy it that much.
Ben Stiller is great as usual as Larry. Of the rest, Amelia Earhart and Kah Mun Rah were good. Didn't like Al Capone and Napoleon much. Was good to see Darth Vader and the muppet again.
Hope the next installment will be better.
