A magical , and enchanting family film, about a down on his luck New Yorker Larry Daley who gets a job as the night watchman for the Museum of Natural History and discovers that the museum has something unusual about it. The exhibits at night come to life. Wonderful and delightful.

Don't go into this movie expecting a complex plot and deep insight into the human condition. The story and plot are lightweight but that doesn't matter too much. The characters are likable enough and the situation is definitely full of possibilities.

The humor is silly and well-done slapstick without much in the way of vulgarity. I especially enjoyed the antics and heroics of the miniature Cowboys, Mayans and Romans.

I recommend it for family viewing
