Chaos reigns at the natural history museum when night watchman Larry Daley accidentally stirs up an ancient curse, awakening Attila the Hun, an army of gladiators, a Tyrannosaurus rex and other exhibits. Larry tries desperately to keep the museum under control, but he's fighting a losing battle until President Teddy Roosevelt comes to the rescue.
This is a movie I really wanted to like. When I saw the previews, I was really excited. It had Ben Stiller, it had first rate special effects, and it just looked really funny.
But I am sorry to say that I was disappointed. The movie for me never really had much heart. The plot was as lame as can be. It was just one special effect after another (which were excellent), but that is not enough for me in a family movie like this. Ben Stiller was funny, and it made me laugh a few times, and the kids will like it, but for me it was just kind of boring.
