  1. Stranded in this charmless fantasy, Stiller is reduced to his old halting, squirming tricks.
  2. This movie is made by and for people who don't care about good storytelling.

    Stiller's continued efforts to court the broadest possible audience has taken the edge off his comedy. Whenever he shares screen time with Williams, it looks like the grim future he's mapping out for himself.

    Watching Williams as Teddy Roosevelt ogle through binoculars Sacajawea (Mizuo Peck) while she stalks around a glassed-in display like some hippie chick in a buffalo-skin straitjacket after a bad trip at Woodstock ’94 makes me sad and uncomfortable.

    "Night At the Museum" is way too formulaic, but hey, at least it makes you laugh.

    Just as good of a movie as I expected it to be. Lots of humor, good build-up thorough the story, great shades of personalities from humans and animals - and other things - alike.

    Perhaps this could have been funnier still, but then again, it worked better this way.

    The visuals looked great and believable.

    (And I am beginning to grow convinced that Ben Stiller cannot star without Owen Wilson - and likewise.)
