Shawn Levy's fantasy adventure sequel again stars Ben Stiller and some impressive CGI effects.
It's two years on from the original outing and former museum nightwatchman Larry Daley (Stiller) is now a successful businessman.
His commercial venture has kept him so busy that he's not had time to visit his secret chums at New York's natural history museum. And when he does finally make it, he discovers that many of them have been packed up and sent off for storage at the Smithsonian in Washington.
Then Daley gets a call from Jebediah (Owen Wilson), one of those dispatched to Washington, to say that the evil Pharaoh Kahmunrah (Hank Azaria) is intent on taking over the Smithsonian.
Obviously, Daley has no choice but to dash south along Interstate 95 and help his friends to quash the megalomaniac's plans...
Among those joining in on the CGI-fuelled fun are Amy Adams, Robin Williams, Steve Coogan and Ricky Gervais.
