Night at the Museum 2: Theater
AndyO review: * * 1/2
Is Night at the Museum 2 bigger and louder than Night at the Museum? Most definitely. Is it better? Unfortunately, no. In the first film, Ben Stiller took a job because he didn't want to lose his son. In this film, there's really nothing at stake. And that's the difference. Are there some great scenes? Definitely. My favorite was the chase that happens inside a black and white photograph. I also liked the Thinker -- who turns out to be anything but a thinker and delivers a great line ("Firepower!"). It's just not enough to sustain a sequel.
