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
(at around 45 mins) 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 »
At their size, they'll bake like tiny little scarabs in the Sinai.

Instead of the standard "fiction" disclaimer, it is stated that "All the events depicted in the film are fictional and not all objects and galleries featured reflect the British Museum's collection or building". See more »
-Secret of the Tomb is the third and final installment of the Night At The Museum series, and this time the tablet's power is running out and the gang must go to the British Natural History Museum to try to find answers and save the gang! -For a film with some flaws that I noticed, it was honestly pretty fun! And that's what really matters in this, because it's for families, not Oscars.
-The story is rushed and doesn't make much sense or hold much weight in the film honestly.
-The pace is not bad. It doesn't waste time, but it does drag once or twice.
-The acting is meh. I feel like Ben Stiller didn't try that hard, along with some of the supporting cast. A few others however, Robin Williams and Lancelot, are great! -The characters are cheesy, but they are not meant to be super deep, serious people. It's a fun film guys.
-The effects range from questionable-to-good, but not Oscar worthy.
-The music is good, but really a repeat of the first film.
-I will say what makes it good and fun is that it feels more like the first film! It is adventurous and sometimes tearjerking, but still fun throughout.
-It is rated PG, so yeah.
-So although it has some major cheese and doesn't let up on a pointless story, Night At The Museum 3 is still fun and surprisingly heartwarming. I don't know if it is worth running out to see, but it is definitely worth getting in a $5 bin! I would give it a good 7/10.
