|Buena Vista Pictures | Release Date: November 19, 2004||CRITIC SCORE DISTRIBUTION|
Tries to combine the suspense of old Saturday morning serials with the gusto of producer Jerry Bruckheimer's action pics.

Nicolas Cageologists will be sad to hear that he's entirely too normal in National Treasure -- he's mildly funny but doesn't make any of the kooky dramatic choices (needless accents, ranting about the orifices of Greek gods) that made his other Bruckheimer performances so much fun to watch.

Disney's National Treasure is supposed to be family-friendly, a PG-rated action adventure free of hard violence and bad language. That's admirable, to be sure, but with a friend like this a family doesn't need sleeping pills.
