This movie is fun for the whole family. The story is weak, but Ben Stiller is great. By playing it straight, he manages to make silly, stupid things seem very funny. The bonus here is that you can enjoy Ben Stiller and the cool effects with your kids. You can also imagine that your kids will get something out of it (appreciation for museums and natural history).

I love this movie! Entertaining from beginning to end! I love the idea of the museum coming to life at night, its fun and something I always wondered about what would happen when all the lights are out. My favorite characters are the Easter Island head, and the cowboy and roman soldier. Ben Stiller did a good job with his laid back attitude and his character's simplicity. Owen Wilson lite up the screen along with Steve Coogan, and their scenes together are unforgettable. I absolutely love Mickey Rooney, and **** Van ****, and they added to the fun of this film. Anyone would enjoy this movie if they like the fantasy idea of the whole thing, and even if they don't, they should see this movie anyways...def a family friendly film with little adult humor, which shouldn't even be in there, but as long as they don't know what it means...just leave it at that.

It could have been netter, Like no one would take their kid to work at night. But it was funny and had its moments
