Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (2014)

Director: Shawn Levy

Stars: Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Steve Coogan, Ricky Gervais, Dan Stevens, Rebel Wilson, Rami Malek, Skyler Gisondo, Patrick Gallagher, Ben Kingsley, Dick Van Dyke, Mickey Rooney, Andrea Martin, Brad Garrett

At the Museum of Natural History, there's a new exhibit being unveiled. Larry Daley, who manages the night exhibit where the exhibits come to life because of the Tablet of Ahkmenrah, is in charge of the presentation. But when the exhibits go awry, Larry finds himself in trouble. He learns the Tablet is corroding so he does some research and learns that Cecil, the former museum guard, was at the site when the Tablet was discovered. He tells Larry they were warned if they remove it could mean the end. Larry realizes it means the end of the magic. He talks to Ahkmenrah who says that he doesn't know anything. Only his father the Pharaoh knows the Tablet's secrets. He learns that the Pharaoh was sent to the London museum. So he convinces Dr. McPhee, the museum curator, to help send him to London. He takes Ahkmenrah with him but some of the others tag along, like Teddy Roosevelt, Attila, Octavius, and Jedediah.

Here is what I think will be the last of these movies. This time, we are at the London Museum. You have the same cast of characters in this one with a few new ones added. It is the same set up as the first two movies. It is just taking place in a different country.

The cast for this movie was huge. Just look above at all of the stars in it. Many of them were only in the movie for a short time. The biggest upset was that Rebel Wilson did not have a better role in the movie. She was in the movie in short shots. She is the funniest one of the bunch. That was a bit of a mistake, but I did not make the movie.

This was still a good family movie. No, it is not an award winner, but it is nothing that you would need to hid from kids. Watch it with the family. Enjoy.
