    If the filmmakers had a script half as good as their special effects, Night at the Museum would be a must-see. show more

    This movie is worth watching. It's a great movie for kids, and has some humor in it. The whole problem/solution thing the face is a little weak. But overall Night At The Museum is a great familt movie!
