Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Owen Wilson and Steve Coogan return in the action-packed comedy sequel Night At The Museum 2. When an evil Egyptian pharaoh is awoken en route to Washington's Smithsonian Institute, Larry must rescue his inanimate buddies from historically-inspired tyranny.

Night has fallen on the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C. The guides have gone home, the lights are out, the school kids are tucked in their beds... yet something incredible is stirring as former night guard Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) finds himself lured into his biggest, most imagination-boggling adventure yet in which history truly comes alive. In this second installment of the Night at the Museum saga, Larry faces a battle so epic it could only unfold in the corridors of the world's largest museum. Now, Larry must try to save his formerly inanimate friends from what could be their last stand amid the wonders of the Smithsonian, all of which, from the famous paintings on the walls to the rocket ships in the halls, suddenly have a mind of their own.

The first ever film shot in the Smithsonian complex, the fun begins as Larry has left behind the low-paying world of guarding museums to become a sought-after inventor of Daley Devices infomercial products. He seems to have it all - but something is missing in his life, something that draws him back to his old haunt, the Museum of Natural History, where he once had the magical night of a lifetime. There, he makes an unsettling discovery. His favourite exhibits, indeed some of his truest friends, have been deemed out-of-date. Packed into crates, they await shipment to the vast archives of the Smithsonian.

Their fate is unknown - that is, until Larry recieves a distress call from the miniature cowboy Jebediah (Owen Wilson), who informs him of an impending disaster. It seems the newcomers have awoken their new digs, including the Egyptian ruler, Kahmunrah (Hank Azaria), who's in a particularly nasty mood after 3,000 years of slumber. Now, he and a trio of history's most heinous henchmen - namely Ivan the Terrible (Christopher Guest), Napoleon Bonaparte (Alain Chabat) and Al Capone (Jon Bernthal) - are plotting to take over the museum (and then the globe), as they unleash the Army of the Underworld.

Speeding to the nation's capital, larry is clearly in over his head. But he's got some impressive new friends - from the brilliant Albert Einstein to honest Abe Lincoln to the one exhibit who takes his breath away - the irrepressible Amelia Earhart (Amy Adams), who spurs Larry to rediscover his missing sense of fun adventure. Along with his old buddies, including Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams), Octavious (Steve Coogan), Sacajawea (Mizuo Peck), Attila The Hun (Patrick Gallagher) and the Neanderthals - Larry will stop at nothing to regain his friends and restore order to the National Mall, from the Lincoln Memorial to the Air and Space Museum, before the stroke of dawn.

There are more jokes this time, but not much else to bring you back if you didn't like the first one.

The material is a little cleverer this time, and unusually for a sequel there's a better plot, but it still relies too heavily on not too inspiring slapstick.

Still, at least they're trying, and the sheer number of fun cameos and gags means that there's enough to warrant at least one viewing.

 I enjoyed this fun film just as much as the first one.

When I heard they were making a sequel to the Night At The Museum I thought where can they possibly take the story and make it successful. Well how wrong was I as I found this film to be maybe even better then the first and Ben Stiller is on great form. There is an excellent Darth Vader joke for all you Star Wars fans towards the end. The director has come up with many funny ideas throughout the film. I came away with a big smile on my face after watching this film at the cinema and consider it a must buy if you enjoyed the first Night At The Museum film.

 MORE OF THE SAME, BUT GOOD FUN WHILST IT LAST'S!

The original Night At The Museum, was fun,. but did also feel that it could have been funnier. The sequel is actually funnier, but plays it clever by not being a complete re-hash of the first film. As the characters introduced in the first are mainly kept in a wooden crate, whilst the new cast a free to get the attention, and by the large are funnier. It's a bigger film than the first, and has a faster pace, whilst some of the gags fall a little flat, you know that another will be along any time soon. Stiller is good but the best credit must go to Hank Hazaria as the egyptian king, with an amazing lisping Borris Kaloff impression. Also the stunning Amy Adams is good value as Stiller side kick, even though it's only for her figure hugging pants! The film is great fun whilst it lasts, and the kids will love it, but as for adults, it's a good 90 minutes, but also very forgettable.
Worth watching to keep the kids quiet!

 Entertaining but not great....

Nowhere near as good as the first. Having settled into the chaos that is models and creatures coming to life, there really was no surprises or excitement in this second installment. It has 'simply to make money' written all over it. Stiller is Ok, but storylines like this very quickly die out when the initial shock is over. Stiller was very matter of fact and just accepts everything where we still wanted to see him in awe and shock of what was going on around him. Good for kids, wont miss much when your making the tea though....
