Night At The Museum 2

Ben Stiller’s back amongst the relics in this anarchic fantasy comedy sequel. When the Museum Of Natural History is shut for renovations, the museum pieces are moved into storage at The Smithsonian in Washington DC – the world’s largest museum. Once again, they spring to life at night, this time including Amelia Earhart (the great Amy Adams), General Custer (Bill Haden), Albert Einstein (Eugene Levy) and Oscar the Grouch.

The original cast are back too - Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Steve Coogan, Ricky Gervais.

2009Rating: PG, some scenes may scare very young childrenUSA

Where the original had a vaguely tenable narrative hook (deadbeat dad finds redemption through nocturnal heroics), the new pic seems purely a vehicle for lavish visuals and cheap gags.

Not funny enough, nor absurd enough to work, Night at the Museum 2 feels like a very long night, without the benefit of sleep.

This rushed Smithsonian visit skims over laughs and excitement to cram in more museum paraphernalia and messages. Like the original but bigger and faster, it’s harmless but throwaway.

Oh, did I dislike this film. It made me squirm. Its premise is lame, its plot relentlessly predictable, its characters with personalities that would distinguish picture books.

Night at The Museum 2 is a wonderful movie. The special effects are amazing and there is a lot of great action and comedy.

Another history lesson. More of the same, and a little funnier than the original.

Much like the first film, Night at the Museum 2 isn’t going to benefit young minds like a real trip to the museum, but it certainly is a lot of fun.

Some of that frenetic running around has been replaced by inspired effects sequences and amusing riffs by the talented cast, especially new arrivals Hank Azaria and Amy Adams.

It’s funnier this time, but still veers noticeably from kid-friendly slapstick to adult-friendly banter.

With more slap than schtick, this knockabout action comedy doesn't quite have the balance between those two genres right, although the inspired appearance of a well-known black-clad asthmatic and a "vaguely grouchy" bad guy will delight both young and old.
