I just took the family to see "Night at the Museum".
On a "Kids' Movie" scale, I'd give it 9/10. It's superb when compared to other kids movies.
Even as a movie in general, I'd give it 8/10.
It was a great story, great effects. Some hysterically funny lines (some adult-oriented ones that leave the grown-ups howling, and kids confused
Ben Stiller is, well, Ben Stiller... nice guy to whom EVERYTHING goes wrong. But he does well in this one. Lots of physical comedy to to along with all the self-depricating humor.
Supporting cast is strong.. Dick Van Dyke is ageless, and even Mickey Rooney is strong... and of course, Owen Wilson is there, as he always is in Ben Stiller movies.. his character is actually one of the funniest.
A couple of babes too, including Carla Gugino, who used to be on Spin City. She looks great!
Anyway, kids or no, I recommend seeing this. Very entertaining.
