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

Larry Daley: I'm Half-Irish, Half-Jewish, so...
Merenkahre: You are! I love Jews! We owned 40,000 of them!
Shepseheret: Such lovely people.
Ahkmenrah: Here we go...
Larry Daley: They were very happy, always singing with candles...
Larry Daley: Yeah. They really weren't happy.
Shepseheret: Really?
Larry Daley: No, they left. They spent about 40 years in the desert trying to escape.
Shepseheret: Oh!
Larry Daley: Yeah, we have dinner once a year and talk about it. It's a big deal.

Disappointment
24 December 2014 | by ImwalleaSee all my reviews

I went to this movie because I am a big fan of the first and second night at the museum- to sum it up it was a huge disappointment . Probably 90% of the movie was completely irrelevant to the plot. I understand when movies have irrelevant parts to give the movie some comedy, but the irrelevant parts in this movie were not remotely funny and I have absolutely no idea what they were thinking while writing this. As for the other 10% of the movie that actually involved a plot- it was the least creative plot I have ever seen anyone come up with and also the worst conflict I have ever seen. If you enjoy making fun of things I highly recommend watching this movie because I could go on for hours.
