grandma's movie review - Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb - Make it Family Movie Night!

I was recently invited to review and give-away the new movie, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (you'll find the give-away info - which is in two days on the 14th - at this link), so when I said I'd be delighted to do so, 20th Century Fox sent me a blu-ray to review. Today, I'm happy to share my opinion of this movie with you . . . and let you know about some fun, free resources which you can use so your family can watch Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb and make it a Family Movie Night! First, my review . . .

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb
Produced by - 20th Century Fox
Rating - PG

Favorite Features -
  • Return of cast from the first two movies - I thought it was fun how they brought Dick Van Dyke, Mickey Rooney and Bill Cobbs back in this final installment.
  • Excellent new cast really added to the fun of Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb - I especially liked seeing Ben Kingsley as Ahkmenrah's dad and loved how they brought Hugh Jackman into the story - great fun!
  • I love how Larry gets his group past the lion statues which came to life . . . very funny!
  • Solid messages in Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb which families can talk about
Twentieth Century Fox describes Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb as the, "hysterical third and final installment in the franchise." They go on to say; "Ben Stiller leads an all-star comedy cast, including Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Rebel Wilson and Ricky Gervais, for one final, fun-filled Night at the Museum. This time, Larry Daley (Stiller) and his heroic friends embark on their greatest adventure yet as they travel to London in order to save the magic which brings the museum exhibits to life!"

I enjoyed Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, although I would have had it end a bit different. But, the story is well told and funny. The "twists and turns" make sense in a "Night at the Museum" story and the actors did a great job presenting their characters! I love how families can watch and then have the opportunity to talk about the messages in Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb - such as how we can end up truly hurting others when we only think about ourselves - like Sir Lancelot and what it means to make the choice to do what is right, even if it means we lose something we have previously enjoyed. 

Twentieth Century Fox has put together some fun resources which you and your family can enjoy for free - plan a Family Movie night where you watch Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb and then enjoy the games and other resources they provide for free in their Family Movie Night Activity Pack at this link.

And, don't forget . . . in two days, on March 14, 2015, I'm giving away one Blu-ray of Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb and you still have time to get in the drawing! Check this link for the details - who knows?!!! Maybe you will win!
