Not bad. I dont usually like Ben Stiller. But this served as a perfect segue into my activities in DC with my girls. We are going to be exploring the Smithsonian and this movie got them so excited to go.

Battle of the Smithsonian makes Night at the Museum look like Citizen Kane as somehow they've managed to throw in even more unneccesary CGI, Characters, painfully bad jokes and un funny slapstick. The one word honestly that would describe the entire film as a sequel or as a stand...

A fairly good follow up to the first. Lacking some of the charm of the first and some of those characters have smaller parts this time round. Idea was good of the tablet going to the biggest collection of museums in America, bringing even more exhibits to life. More of the same r...

This is a great sequel and it's not often that a sequel is better than the original movie. I think this movie has a better and more involved storyline. Larry (Ben Stiller) has left the museum and has become a successful inventor. Meanwhile the museum exhibits have been moved to W...
