Night at the Museum 2

Last night I went and saw "Night at the Museum 2" with my brother, and

we had a lot of fun! If you enjoyed the first movie, you'll probably

really enjoy this movie! I'm always a little leery when I go to see a

sequel, so many of them are done poorly, but this is one time where

they did a good job.

Without giving away any spoilers, the plot of the movie is that our

friends from the Museum of Natural History are being put in deep

storage beneath the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. Now ordinarily that

would just be sad, but one the monkey's makes sure that the tablet

that brings them to life goes with them, which means that all the

other items in the Smithsonian are coming to life! Since this the

largest museum in the world, that means a world of chaos!

There are some great one liners in this movie, and some fun new

characters, including an appearance by Oscar the Grouch and Darth

Vader! There are some places where you have to completely ignore

logic, but if you go into the movie willing to suspend belief, you'll

be fine. I tend to notice those anyway, and I enjoyed the movie

despite them!

It's the movies. One is meant to suspend belief. (But sometimes that is more easily accomplished than others.) glad you enjoyed the movie and your brother's company.
