A Night At The Museum

Some of the Murphy Family saw Night At The Museum and were very pleasantly surprised. At least I was, as I didn't expect, but it was funny and enjoyable and a good popcorn movie. Yes, it is stupid, but entertainingly so, not annoyingly so. I guess I don't mind preposterous history in an unserious film (or at least a film that doesn't take itself seriously). And it's a treat to see Dick Van Dyke (I thought he was dead!) again, and to see him dance at his age in the final credits was worth whatever my wife paid. This is only the second movie Owen Wilson didn't set my teeth on edge -- so they must have done something right (like given him a supporting role).
