Flashback Friday-Night At The Museum (2006)

The path that is life can often throw us strange curveballs.

In Night At Museum (2006), Larry Daly (Ben Stiller) has a dilemma on his hands. Divorced with as young son, Nick (Jake Cherry), Larry has no job and is about be evicted from his apartment. The only job he can find is a night guard at the Museum of Natural History in New York City.

Larry is replaced three security guards, Cecil (Dick Van Dyke), Gus (Mickey Rooney) and Reginald (Bill Cobbs) who are being forced to retire. Larry thinks the job will be easy. How wrong he is. At night, the exhibits come to life. Larry soon learns that his predecessors want the stone that brings the exhibits to life. Can he save the museum and prevent the theft?

While the movie has its slapstick moments, it’s also very well made. And, without knowing it, the audience is receiving a history lesson.

Do I recommend it? Yes.
