Movies: Night at the Museum

Last Tuesday, I saw the Night at the Museum as part of a free screening through work. After a long hiatus, work has started doing free screenings again. They tend to be bad movies since the studios don’t need to promote the good or popular movies as much. I heard people complaining about the awfulness of Eragon, the previous weeks screening.

Night at the Museum was funny. The basic idea was that the exhibits in the Museum of Natural History in New York come alive at night and terrorize the new night guard. There were some nice touches like the T. Rex skeleton which acts like a dog chasing a bone and the tiny people from the dioramas. The plot was predictable from the setup and it is a little too cute and educational in places. But it was basically silly fun and I enjoyed it.
