Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian (2009)

(PG) 105 mins

Plot Summary: In this sequel to the hit comedy, Ben Stiller returns as hapless museum night watchman Larry Daley, who must help his living, breathing exhibit friends out of a pickle now that they’ve been transferred to the archives at the Smithsonian Institution. Larry’s (mis)adventures this time include close encounters with Amelia Earhart (Amy Adams), Abe Lincoln (Hank Azaria) and Ivan the Terrible (Christopher Guest). Owen Wilson and Robin Williams co-star.

Director: Shawn Levy

Serious Jest:  (Don’t Bother)  While most of this movie’s humor is purposefully directed at kids,  it features an all-star cast (including notable names not mentioned above), and there are some moments that are hilarious, no matter what your age, like the standoff between Stiller and Jonah Hill.
