Storyline

At the Museum of Natural History, there's new exhibit being unveiled. Larry Daley who manages the night exhibit because the exhibits come to life because of the Tablet of Ahkmenrah, is in charge of the presentation. But when the exhibits go wild, Larry finds himself in trouble. He learns that the Tablet is corroding so he does some research and learns that Cecil, the former museum guard was at the site when the Tablet was discovered. He tells Larry that they were warned that if they remove it could mean the end. Larry realizes it means the end of magic. He talks to Ahkmenrah who says that he doesn't know anything. Only his father the Pharoah knows the Tablet's secrets. He learns that the Pharoah was sent to the London museum. So he convinces, Dr. McPhee the museum curator to help send him to London. He goes and takes Ahkmenrah with him but some of the others like Teddy Roosevelt, Attila, Octavius, and Jedediah come with him. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Goofs

Consensus among scientists is that the Neanderthal humanoids were intelligent beings capable of elaborate speech, complex and logical reasoning and action, and had sophisticated social and cultural merits. Even for comic relief it can be regarded as backward to portray our common ancestors as brutish idiots, while they should be regarded as extremely skilled survival experts, before climate change, mass extinction of primary resources and brutal invasion and later assimilation and cross-procreation by/with other species of human led to their demise. In short: Neanderthals were not stupid, just less capable of adaptation than Homo Sapiens. See more »

Disappointing!
6 January 2015 | by (Sarajevo B&H) – See all my reviews

I have to say that I expected a little bit more out of this film. I got less. Kids I went with to see the film enjoyed themselves, but I was bored.

Plot is paper thin. Jokes are not that funny. Acting is OK, since this was last role for the Robin Williams this film is worth watching. What a man we lost! This is a film you take kids to, nothing very educational or interesting, a little bit funny and that is it. Not really a film for the adults.

I want to add that visual and special effects are extraordinary and that companies who work on that are to be commanded. How far film making went from from the times when film making started!
