Ben Stiller play a blundering security guard at the Museum of Natural History where the exhibits and animals on display come to life and wreak havoc at night.

Trying his best to keep his job, he has to overcome a skeletal T-Rex, gladiators and cowboys engaging in battles, a mumbling Christopher Columbus, and a jingle of wild animals. Nobody believes him, and only a wax figurine of President Roosevelt (Robin Williams) offers a helping hand.

Overall, it is a fun-filled pop-corn flick for the young in the family. Let your imaginations run wild with this adventure. Two thumbs up for special effects and makeup teams who transform everything to life. For better enjoyment of the movie, avoid watching any trailer which is likely to show the best and funniest parts of the movie.

Ben Stiller comes across as sincere and genuine (as compared to Zoolander, Meet the Fockers and Dodgeball) playing the divorced father. There are many other characters who have their own funny side, my favourites being Attila the Hun and gum-blowing Easter Island statue. More could be delivered from Robin Williams though, who speaks his usual gibberish once again.

Though not a trip to the actual museum, the movie also acts as a simple history lesson with its brief introduction of various historical characters. It would have been a more prolific attempt if there was more characterization and less corny jokes.
