Ben, what were the things in it that you didn't like? Here's what I was bothered by...

click to reveal content
It started off a bit slow, and I wasn't surprised by anything throughout the film - everything that happened just kinda happened, as funny as the situations were. The relationship between Larry and the woman who worked in the museum seemed unneeded as well - she never did anything significant , really, and there didn't seem to be anything romantic going on, either (although I guess I should be thankful for that - I don't want a love side-story for no reason, that would just distract from the main plot, which is something too many movies do.) The effects were impressive, though some of the green-screen shots looked wonky and unfinished, and a friend of mine who took a film class spotted several scenes where the boom mike was visible. Also, I kept wondering throughout the entire movie whether or not the museum had any security cameras in it!
Again, once it got going it was a LOT of fun, and overall I loved it.

Night at the Museum was completely awesome okay

Also, the simpsons trailer before it caught everyone I was with off guard and it was HILARIOUS.

I know it was awesome, Mac. I just had a few minor problems with it. Am I not allowed to say how I think a movie is without you approving my review or something?

Seems pretty obvious...they weren't going to make a feature in 18 months without this happening.

And for artists who love hand-drawn animation, the gigs where they can put pencil to paper are few and far between. (Curious George was the last one. Frog Princess will, a year from now, probably be the next.)
Frog Princess will be released in a year ??? :shock:

I think he means that's when they're going to start animating it. :P

Yeah, I know, Ben! :)

My favorite out of the pics, would be the mob one. It looks so cool! and I see two or three characters, that haven't been on the show, since like forever! :P

I love them! The mob one too--it has Superintendant Chalmers, my favorite character! (next to Krusty) :wink:

Also I wonder if they'll have Gil, or the waiter guy who says: "Yeeeeeeeeeeeeessss?" :P
