Night at the Museum

What if...

Isn't that every kid's preface to a great adventure? What if the museum comes to life each night? What if dinosaurs roam and lions prowl and the great battles of history are fought again and again and again? And what if a 21st century skeptical adult finds himself not just a witness to but a protaganist in this great saga?

Showcase the performances of three legendary comic actors and What If? becomes magic. Not only do Andy Rooney and Dick Van Dyke have a little fun, but we get to go along for the ride.

However, the best part of the movie is not these two old pros in their surprisingly evil roles, but the subdued and on-the-dime performance of Robin Williams as Teddy Roosevelt. Who else could play that multi-faceted sky-rocket of a president? The treat here is that Williams plays the man rather than the caricature and the result is a stunning vignette leaving the Roosevelt fans wishing for more.

What if you miss this movie? The sun will come up, birds will sing, the wind will blow, but you will have missed a roaring good time!
