Night At The Museum 2 | Ratings & Reviews

"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."

Urban CinefileUrban Cinefile

"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."

Total FilmTotal Film

"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."

Roger EbertRoger Ebert

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

Otago Daily TimesOtago Daily Times

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

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

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"Some of that frenetic running around has been replaced by inspired effects sequences and amusing riffs by the talented cast, especially new arrivals Hank Azaria and Amy Adams."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

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

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"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."
