Ben Stiller returns as night watchman Larry Daily, now a successful business man, who gets back to the museum just in time to find that he needs to get his friends out of trouble. This new installment takes us to the Smithsonian, and introduces us to new characters, such as Amelia Earhart, General Custer, and many more!
(at around 9 mins) T-Rex in Night at the Museum had three digits (fingers) on each forelimb and in the Battle of The Smithsonian he has only two. It is supposed to be the same dinosaur on display in both films. See more »
Sailor Joey Motorola:
[sees Kahmunrah's men]
What am I lookin' at here, Mardi Gras? Where unit are you from?
Uh, I'm from Brooklyn.
Sailor Joey Motorola:
Brooklyn? Are you serious? I'm from Flatbush! Hey fellas, these so-and-sos are tryin' to rough up my pal here just because he's from Brooklyn!

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 »
In this sequel to Night At The Museum, Ben Stiller now a millionaire who does
motivational infomercials still finds time to visit his old friends at the Museum
of Natural History where he made their acquaintence while working as a night
security guard there.
But with his millions he can't stop changes as the Museum is now going for
interactive exhibits and many are being packed away and sent to the National
Archives, some for exhibit in the Smithsonian.
So Stiller goes back into action and visits the archive which is lots of underground space between the Capitol and Lincoln Memorial.
I wonder myself in both of these films was Stiller really visiting Madame Tussaud's with all the historical figures coming to life.
Theodore Roosevelt's connection with the Museum Of Natural History is well
known and Robin Williams is back as our rough riding 26th president. Others
are back and new ones added.
Hank Azaria is brilliant as the Egyptian prince whose incantation caused all
these exhibits to come to life after sundown. He sounds like he was channeling Boris Karloff.
Amy Adams is a feisty feminist role model Amelia Earhart who gets kind of
interested in Stiller. They make a good team.
As for them getting together. A gambit that Meet Joe Black and Bing Crosby's A Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur's Court used is applied here. You have to
see the film to see what I mean.
A few good laughs in this nice family entertainment film.
