It might be because my dream job has always been to work in a museum, but it just so happens that Ben Stiller is also my favorite actor. When this movie came out, I went insane with joy. I remember watching it for the first time so clearly.
The story is a fantasy about the articles in the museum coming to life at night and Ben Stiller has to deal with it alone. It’s really, really funny.
If you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend Night at the Museum. I don’t usually watch movies like this but I had to see it, and I’m talking about it now because I just watched it again for the sixth time last night. It never gets old. The sequel isn’t as good but it’s also a great movie.
The movies I usually watch are medieval movies like these. It might be because when I was little I went to a medieval museum in Italy and it blew my mind. The Middle Ages are so fascinating, but not as exciting as exhibits coming to life in a museum like Night at the Museum. But by far I would be happiest if my Medieval Canadian Museum idea came to life, because then I could meet my ancestors, even though they would only be wax dummies. It would be like an episode of Scooby-Doo.
In Night at the Museum, my favorite scene is when Ben Stiller is being chased by the dinosaur. That scene always made me laugh and it still does.
I give Night at the Museum 5 out of 5 stars.
