Okay, so I NEVER buy a DVD without seeing the movie first. I figure why woudl I wnat to own a movie unless I know I love it? But I keep seeing the DVD for "Night at the Museum" and I almost put it in my cart at the store today. I LOVE Ben Stiller and I am a museum junkie. It sounds like a great fantasy movie. Still, do I really want to shell out $19.99 for a movie I've never seen? If you've seen it, can you give me a review? Please?

We bought, we loved it!!!!!! Our 4 yr. old son was facinated by it...I was amazed at many historical figures he is able to recognize from this movie...we do study together and now we have a whole new group of people and civilizations to research together...I can hardly wait..... I highly recommend this as a family movie....money well spent, in my opinion. My son has now watched Night at the Museum 4-5 times from the beginning to the end...He loves "Rexy".... I hope that you at least go and see it..... Warmest wishes. Have a blessed day!

If there's one movie you buy this year, then this one's it. There's no denying the fact that this is one of the best ones out there. I saw it in the theatre shortly after it came out and I couldn't stop laughing. My favorite line was said by the Easter Island head: "You dum-dum. Give me gum-gum". Enjoy the movie.

I am a movie junkie, but like you I try to see them before I buy,especially the more pricey ones. Sometime I will take a chance if I like the actors in it or if I can get it for a good price. I haven't seen this yet.

It was really cute. It was a fun movie that especially if you have children is a great film for the whole family to enjoy. Even if you don't have kids though you will still enjoy it if you like the "family" humor of Robin Williams/Ben Stiller types.

UPDATE: My friend lent it to us this past weekend and my kids LOVED it! IT's definitely a keeper and I'll go to Target tommorow to buy it! Thank you to you all for your feedback on it!

I took my kids to see it at a local event so it was only $2.00 each. The boys then 7 and 5 really liked it but my then 11 year old daughter and I didn't care about it. It was funny and cute but nothing WOW. Okay but I would be not happy if I would have spent $19.99 each for it. Though now I guess it is on DVD so it would be worth getting for young boys.

It's a great movie! oh how i wished i got to watch it in a 3D/Imax theater. It would have been greater fun if i did. *sigh* but oh well, i still want to watch it over and over again. It's such an "adventure" movie. ^_^

I finally was able to see this movie last night (rented it) with my kids and we all absolutely loved it! There were a couple of parts I thought were kind of silly (I won't post spoilers), but overall I thought it was a very good movie. I'm considering buying a copy for my boyrfriend as a father's day gift.

We just watched it tonight and love it! It's an awesome movie and I can't wait to watch it again. It really is a good movie for the family or even just for us adults. It makes you wonder what would happen if this stuff happened in place for real. I would def. recommend getting this movie.
