      I have to say this is one of my all-time favorite Ben Stiller movies. I’m not really a Stiller fan; the only movie he’s really “acted” in was the hilarious Zoolander; otherwise, he always plays the same character: neurotic, a little nerdy, uncommitted, but with a good soul. He was pretty much that same person in “Museum”; but in this magnificent movie, it works.

      Larry Daley (Stiller) is a

      deadbeat dad (a typical Stiller role) who can’t seem to hold down a decent job. His ex-wife is disgusted; even his son Nick (Jake Cherry) is disappointed in his dad. But Larry hopes things will turn around when he gets hired as a night watchman for the Museum of Natural History.

      He’ll be replacing the three old watchman, played by screen legends Dick Van Dyke, Mickey Rooney, and Bill ...

      • Cobbs. The previous watchmen give him a manual for taking care of the museum, and leave him to it. What he doesn’t know: at night, the museum magically comes to life!

        Now Larry is faced with the daunting task of keeping the crazy museum inhabitants under control. His ally is a statue of Teddy Roosevelt, brilliantly played by Robin Williams. Owen Wilson makes a cameo appearance as Jedediah, a

        miniature cowboy.

        The movie is absolutely hilarious, and the special effects are dazzling. I was glued to my seat from beginning to end. I loved the talking Easter Island head, who constantly demands bubble gum. There’s also a Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton who loves to play fetch, and a group of cavemen always trying to start a fire. This is a family classic and will be enjoyed by all ages.
