7th December 2009

Even though I haven't watched the first, I decided to watch Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian (2009) purely because Amy Adams is in it. I love Amy Adams. She constantly manages to blow me away in any movie she's in. And yet, she is so under-rated. News flash: this woman is one of the best in the business. So, the title is pretty self-explanatory. The movie is all about one night at a museum, where all the exhibits come to life. Now I haven't seen the first one, so I didn't get some of the things that were happening in this movie. But some of the exhibits from the original museum get shipped off to the Smithsonian (I'd really like to go there, it looks massive!!), and put down in the archives. It's up to Larry (Ben Stiller) to save some of his 'friends', and on this journey he starts a bit of a war between the original Smithsonian exhibits and the new arrivals. During the little battle, Larry meets Amelia Earhart (Adams) and they spark an unlikely relationship. In the long list of forbidden love stories, this story between a museum night-guard and a 1930's pioneer aviatrix would be right up there with Romeo and Juliet. We see a lot of different exhibits come to life, which includes some annoying singing cherubs who are apparently voiced by the Jonas Brothers of all people. The worst thing is, is that they try to recreate the Titanic theme. Jo Bros: leave that song alone! The movie is really an adventure, where we can take a look at things that will never be (like live museum statues). You should watch this with the kids, because they will enjoy it.

You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.
