Storyline

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

Trivia

The film is dedicated to actors Mickey Rooney and Robin Williams, who appear in the film, but died before its release. See more »

Goofs

Octavius reads Pompeii upside-down and pronounces it "Iiepwop". As the Romans had neither lowercase nor W, this would indicate he has learned to read modern-day writing (for the purpose of commenting on YouTube cat videos). Consequently he should pronounce it "Iiedwod"; an upside-down P looks like a d. (Although it's never stated, the character could be dyslexic which would explain this last part.) See more »

Quotes

Octavius: You'll rue the day you mocked us with your huge sword and hypnotic blue eyes!
[Jedediah turns and looks at him]
Octavius: His eyes are very blue.

Lollipop Movie
17 June 2015 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

Watching Night at The Museum is like watching a Cinderella or Snow White, you know what to expect and you got it. The movie looks like it runs out of fuel and try to squeeze everything necessary to keep it alive and worth to watch, with the help of good special effect and cameo!

The storyline is waayyy too simple, for a franchise which made a big bucks with its first installment, it feels that they have lack of ideas, no surprise, no twists, just plain. They only try to bring life to more and more statues, as a sweetener, with no clear ideas of the story value. This is like eating lots of candies, sweet but not healthy. t

The roles of Owen Wilson (Jedediah) and Steve Coogan (Octavius) are just contrived, if they are not exist in this movie, it wouldn't hurt at all, and the scene seems to be forced, a Pompeii volcano erupted in a micro scale under the museum? Can you believe it? Dude, it's entertaining but come on, this is too much, don't make it a stupid movie and ruin the whole franchise.

Rebel Wilson plays it quite well here, but is this just my feeling or what? I think she's mimicking Melissa McCarthy, interesting but not original.

Overall, this movie is wayy below the first and second, not really worth to watch, and the last part of the movie is like saying "I have no more idea, good bye". But if you only want to eat candies, you may watch this movie.
