Night At The Museum
I was impressed. I'm very quick to bag family/kids films these days - being brought up on the genius of Zemeckis & Spielberg films, like Back To The Future etc.
But I thought was constantly entertaining, and held a certain magic which came close to - if not reaching - the same level as those great family films of the 80s.
My kid loved it. I can see the fun in it, and I think it was well done. Ben Stiller I thought was better than I'd ever seen him.
I couldn't help but wonder if these films have the magic I remember films having when I was a teenager. Back To The Future was a movie I especially remember loving as a youngster, I don't think a movie like this holds that special vibe.
But good, none the less - certainly more so for the kids.
Slightly remiscent of Jumanji, though with greater humour and a dazzling cast. I found this movie Magical and fantastical. Ben Stiller, not overly hillarious, but playing his part perfectly, as the struggling Father trying to make his son proud and prove himself to the world.
The kids'll love, and the grown ups - who still have a bit of kid in them - will certainly appreciate it.
