Night at the Museum

The whole family went to the movies last night. Tuesdays are half-price nights around here. I don't know if that's the case everywhere. But if there's something we can't wait to rent when it's out on DVD then we usually try to go on a Tuesday to save money.

Anyway, all 6 of us went to see Night at the Museum. It was a fun movie. I'm not giving anything away that you wouldn't see in the trailer. The movie is about a new night security guard at the Museum of Natural History in NYC. What he doesn't know when he takes the job is that everything in the place comes to life at night. The movie stars Ben Stiller and has Dick Van Dyke, Mickey Rooney, Robin Williams, and Owen Wilson.

Like I said, it was fun. It was a G rating and there was absolutely nothing in it the kids shouldn't have seen. No innuendo, no language, nothing inappropriate. And all 6 of us liked it, from the 13 year old down to the 4 year old, even the 30-something mom and the 40 year old dad.

I wonder if it will get more people going to museums too. When we lived closer to Toronto we'd go for an annual visit to either the Royal Ontario Museum or the Ontario Science Centre, sometimes both, but we haven't for a while.

Anyway, fun movie, check it out.
