Night At The Museum:Battle of the Smithsonian Review

nambosThe original Night At The Museum was a very funny movie.  We recently got to preview Night At The Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian.  The movie has a lot of action, and goes to teach one of lifes valuable lessons… If you aren’t happy with what you are doing, then change it.

I highly recommend this movie for anyone that liked the original movie, or anyone that is into comedy.  My wife, and our little one enjoyed the movie a lot.

A delightful adventure, Night At The Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian arrives in a Blu-ray Disc/DVD Combo Pack (Blu-ray, DVD and a Digital Copy) and for a limited time only a “Monkey Mischief” double DVD on December 1 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

History is larger than life — and twice as funny — in this monumental comedy sequel.  Ben Stiller (Meet The Parents, There’s Something About Mary) stars as Larry Daley, a former night watchman at the Museum of Natural History, where the exhibits come alive after dark.  But now Larry’s nocturnal friends are being retired to the archives of the Smithsonian Institution, luring him back for a hilarious, all-out battle against a cranky Egyptian Pharaoh who plans to take over the museum… and the world!  From returning director Shawn Levy (Cheaper By The Dozen), the film also stars Amy Adams (Enchanted), Robin Williams (Good Will Hunting), Owen Wilson (Wedding Crashers), Hank Azaria (“The Simpsons”), Ricky Gervais (“The Office”), Steve Coogan (Tropic Thunder) and Jonah Hill (Super Bad).
