I hadn’t bought any movies lately. I’ve been busy with so many other things. But today I bought Night at the Museum.
This is the funniest, most enjoyable, wonderful even, film I have seen in a long, long time.
And I am glad I bought it. Because I know the next time I watch it I will get more of the inside jokes that I missed the first time. I might watch this 3-4 times before I catch all of the jokes. It is extremely well done. Perhaps I enjoyed it so much because I really expected it to disappoint me.
It did not.
Some of the jokes are subtle, but both my daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed this film. If you haven’t seen it, watch it.
My favorite line is when the diorama-sized cowboy and Roman Commander are letting the air out of the tires of a bad guy and several others assisting them get blown away by the airflow. The Roman tells the Cowboy, “Save yourself” and the Cowboy responds with, “I ain’t quittin’ you”. Both my daughter and I got the Brokeback Mountain reference and laughed and laughed.
Really – this was a ton of fun to watch!
