Night at the Museum is an intriguing story. At one time it seems to lose its way with just too much noise, confusion and stuff going on, but it gets back to the major plot.
Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) takes a job as a night watchman. He doesn’t really want to, as he is an inventor who has had bad luck. However, in order to continue to visit his son who lives with his ex-wife, he needs a job. He replaces three old codgers, which provides cameos for Dick Van Dyke, Mickey Rooney and Bill Cobbs. The thing only the night watchmen at this museum know, everything comes to life at night. This is because of an ancient Egyptian tablet. Amongst the characters we also meet Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams) Sacagawea (Mizuo Peck) Jedediah a cowboy (Owen Wilson) and a centurion (Steve Coogan). We also add a tour guide (Carla Gugino) at the museum, for a love interest. Our old codgers are too pleased about being replaced. The plan to steal the tablet, and anything else they can take, and pin it all on our new night guard. It is gong to take the cooperation of everyone to fix this mess. Worse, if any museum characters are out at night, the turn to dust, and it will be the end of the job.
