Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) must help his museum friends before they’re placed into storage! Worse still, the evil pharaoh Kahmunrah (Hank Azaria) has stolen the powerful Tablet of Ahkmenrah—without which none of the exhibits can come to life. Kahmunrah plans to use the tablet’s power to raise an evil army from the underworld. To help him carry out his dastardly plan, Kahmunrah recruits history’s worst bad guys: Napoleon, Ivan the Terrible and the gangster Al Capone! It’ll take courage and a lot of luck for Larry and his friends to find a way out of storage and defeat the pharaoh, but with some of history’s biggest and brightest on their team—like Theodore Roosevelt and Amelia Earhart—they just might have a chance!

Special Features

Battle of the Smithsonian is jam packed with bonus features all about the special effects and talented cast and crew that brought the characters to life. Directing 101 and Bringing the Museum to Life showcase director Shawn Levy’s sense of humor—watch as he goofs around and stands in for CG creations like the giant, animated T-Rex skeleton. Monkey Business follows the training of Crystal the Monkey who plays Capuchin and Building the Museum shows you all the hard work that went into recreating the real-life museum that the movie takes place in. There’s also blooper reels, trailers, extended scenes, a DVD-ROM game and lots of commentary—you won’t be bored!


The Bottom Line

Night at the Museum 2 reunites the characters from the first film and introduces some new ones. Amy Adams is adorable as Amelia Earhart, Bill Hader makes a hilarious General Custer and it’s reassuring to see Ben Stiller back in the museum cracking jokes and making faces like only he can. The action is fast-paced, the effects look great—all in all, Battle of the Smithsonian is a worthy sequel to the original.
