Night At The Museum 2
opened today, and since it was not one that I prescreened, decided I was going
to go see it so I could advise the ATS Membership about it as far as entertainment value.
I went to my new favorite Cinemark Extreme Digital Theater
to insure that I watched it in the best possible
The theater seats 600 and even though it was the 3:30 p.m. showing, it was packed with kids
. Row after row after row of excited kids with
parents who looked like they were going to the Spanish Inquisition
instead of a day out with the kids at a movie of their choice. Now don't
get me wrong.... I raised four kids in my lifetime, been there, done that.... unfortunately, now that I am a close to being single at 60 man, having a
theater full of screaming kids was not at the top of my list.
Okay... now for the review. I had seen the original so I pretty much knew what was coming. I'm a big fan of Ben Stiller
and have really become
quite a fan of Amy Adams
who plays Amelia Earhart
, but maybe it was all the kids, I was a bit bored with it all. The special effects
were great, but it really dragged in a lot of places and even the rack of kiddos sitting next to me, who were going to the bathroom every 10 minutes,
seemed a little disappointed. Does it have some cute moments, yes.... does it have some tender moments.... yes..... but if you just use the almost 600
kiddos and a few parents as a guide.... it was mildly entertaining.
So, using my entertainment criteria..... unless you are just bored and want to blow $20.00....... I give it.....
