Lucy and Edmund Pevensie return to Narnia with their cousin Eustace where they meet up with Prince Caspian for a trip across the sea aboard the royal ship The Dawn Treader. Along the way they encounter dragons, dwarves, merfolk, and a band of lost warriors before reaching the edge of the world.
Manny, Sid, and Diego discover that the ice age is coming to an end, and join everybody for a journey to higher ground. On the trip, they discover that Manny, in fact, is not the last of the woolly mammoths.
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!
The Smithsonian does host a giant squid exhibit, but this was forgone for a giant octopus in the film. For some reason, however, the film's marketing in Japan (where the difference between a squid and an octopus is common knowledge) consistently referred to the octopus as a "squid", even though it is never directly identified as either animal in the film.

Jedediah is very small, appearing to be no more than two inches tall. When he is in the hourglass the sand is the incorrect size. To be in proportion to him the sand grains should be almost as large as a basketball. See more »
What, did they run out of U's on your name plate?
I dunno, did they run out of jokes at the Interesting Joke Store that you shop at?

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 »
An Afternoon in the Theater: The Battle to Stay Amused
I should have trusted the reviews because this movie was dragging me down the seat.
I love Ben Stiller but he just didn't shine here. With all the historical figures having to make an appearance, poor ol' Ben drowned in the confusion of this fast-paced pointless sequel. Amy Adams was nearly taking over the film and although she was lovely in Enchanted, she was trying too hard to be an enthusiastic fly-girl here, which annoyed me a lot. There were only about two to three scenes I found to be very funny, the rest I fought to keep myself entertained.
They shouldn't have gone with the Kahmunrah plot. It was a gimmicky and far-fetched move, and it wasn't working one bit. The Underworld was also absurd and didn't fit well with the theme of the movie.
They recycled a few things from the first. It didn't get old but 3 out of how many attempted gags is far from satisfactory.
From Tropic Thunder to this. No more Nights at the Museum. Ben Stiller should go back to pure comedy.
