Night At The Museum (2007) – Movie Review

Do you like this story?

Night At The Museum is a movie about Larry Daley (Ben Stiller), a newly recruited night security guard at the Museum of Natural History that discovers that an ancient curse has caused the animals and exhibits on display to come to life at night and wreak havoc. Like most characters acted by Ben Stiller, Larry Daley is a loser in life who has got no job, is divorced and is fighting for the right for his son. He was the CEO of “Snapper”, an invention in which you just need to snap your fingers to get electrical items to turn on – somehow a new invention called “Clapper” seems to sell better as it’s easier to clap then to snap. So, one day, Larry has got himself a job at the museum as a night guard. The director of the museum decides to hire one younger man to replace the three old existing guards to save cost since the museum has not been losing money as not many visitors frequent the museum.

Night At The Museum

So, Larry is introduced to the three old guards. As the night comes, the three old guards give Larry a torchlight and a set of keys and an instruction manual. As Larry does not know about the mystery of the museum, he doesn’t bother reading the instruction manual. That’s when he knows he need to read the manual – it’s too late and the manual is torn to pieces by one of the monkeys in the museum.

The movie is basically about Larry and getting things right at the museum, and at the same time, to prove to his ex-wife and son that he’s not a loser. The plots and storyline are light-weighted but it’s a humorous movie and it’s good for the whole family to watch!
