Review

Our Score
This snappy comedy sequel sees nightwatchman-turned-entrepreneur Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) return to his old haunts at New York's Museum of Natural History only to find that his exhibit pals are headed for permanent storage at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington. And, what's more, egotistical Egyptian prince Kahmunrah (Hank Azaria) is planning to take over the museum. It's all fun and games as Larry exchanges quips with Kahmunrah and his cohorts (Napoleon, Al Capone and Ivan the Terrible - or Ivan the Awesome as he would have it), falls for Amelia Earhart (Amy Adams) and hides inside Eisenstadt's famous VJ Day "kissing sailor" photo. The film has a broader scope and more imagination than the original, but it's the delightful special effects that impress the most.

Summary

The living exhibits at New York's Museum of Natural History are shipped to Washington's Smithsonian Institution - along with the artefact that brought them to life in the first place. Nightwatchman Larry tries to retrieve it, only to find the contents of the world's largest museum have been reanimated, including a pharaoh determined to take over the world. Fantasy comedy sequel, starring Ben Stiller, Amy Adams, Owen Wilson and Steve Coogan.
