Night At The Musuem: Battle of the Smithsonian

It is rare for my husband and I to sit down to actually watch a noncartoon movie anymore but while his mother was here, we had the fun opportunity to watch Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian. We had watched the first one when my mother-in-law had come to visit the last time so it was funny to watch the sequel with her. 

SynopsisHistory is larger than life — and twice as funny — in this monumental comedy sequel. Ben Stiller (Meet The Parents, There’s Something About Mary) stars as Larry Daley, a former night watchman at the Museum of Natural History, where the exhibits come alive after dark. But now Larry’s nocturnal friends are being retired to the archives of the Smithsonian Institution, luring him back for a hilarious, all-out battle against a cranky Egyptian Pharaoh who plans to take over the museum... and the world!

My Opinion:  After a long day of blogging, I needed a good laugh and this movie sure provided it.  I felt that it was as good as the original however my husband disagreed.  I felt that Larry Daley had some big lessons to learn and it was fun to watch the characters come to life once more.  I absolutely love how much history a child can learn from Night at the Musuem: Battle of the Smithsonian.  As a former history teacher, this would have been a fun movie for a history class to see as they can learn interesting facts without ever realizing that they did!

I highly recommend Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian for the laughs, the life lessons, and the fun learning experience!
