A lot livelier than you'd think

January 02, 2007|by AL WUNDERLICH

My initial reaction upon watching "Night at the Museum" was, "Not bad." It was not the greatest movie I've seen, but I did enjoy it.

The movie is clever and has its hilarious moments, but it isn't anything too amazing. It's good if you don't mind somewhat corny movies, as some of the humor was cheesy.

The basic plot: Larry Daley (played by Ben Stiller) is a divorced dad looking for a job. A position for a night guard at a natural history museum opens up. Being desperate to show his son that he can have a steady career, Daley takes the job. What he doesn't realize is that exhibits in the museum come to life at night.

Other than Stiller, viewers might recognize actors Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Dick Van Dyke and Mickey Rooney in the movie.

Although probably not to be considered extraordinary, it was fairly well done and worth seeing for a laugh.

Overall, I'd rate it an 8.5 out of 10.
