Night at the Museum


When the museum closes, all the exhibits come to life and the new night watchman must deal with the chaos. A lightweight, inoffensive, and totally predictable summer movie that I’m sure I’ll forget all about within a year. But I have to wonder, do you think Ben Stiller and Hugh Grant were twins, separated at birth? A little of that stammering, hesitant, awkward delivery goes a long way. Ben Stiller never delivers a line without three qualifiers afterward … and then another for good measure. Same with Grant. I’m trying to envision a movie starring both of them, a scene between the two, with each stumbling over the other … oh, the horror, the horror.
