The first Night At The Museum was a whimsical little fantasy flick for all ages — except for Ben Stiller's obnoxious delivery. Can new additions Amy Adams and Bill Hader rescue the sequel?
Despite the Stiller-isms, I still have high hopes for Amy Adams as Amelia Earhart, and the same goes for Bill Hader as General George Armstrong Custer. (Please start casting Hader in more things, he's hilarious). Adams commits to any character she's given, and no doubt will make this sequel as sweet as anything. If you haven't seen the original, I highly recommend it as a holiday rental that both you and the wee ones will enjoy. In spite of stammering Stiller.
Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian is out in May of 2009.
