The Pursuit of Happyness

Tonight I saw The Pursuit of Happyness, starring Will and Jayden Smith.

This movie is the topic of Cinebanter #17, available here.

Night At The Museum

Saturday evening I saw Night at the Museum starring Ben Stiller and Robin Williams.

The best way to evaluate this one is to say that it is what it is.

Is it silly? Yes. Is it funny? Sure. Is it a pleasant option for holiday movie watching? Absolutely.

Basically, Ben Stiller is a deadbeat dad that has trouble staying employed, so in desperation he accepts a position as a night guard at New York's Museum of Natural History. The catch? Due to an ancient Egyptian tablet, everything in the museum comes to life after dark.

The adventures that Ben's "Larry" endures are predictable and formulaic, but cute and easy to watch nonetheless. Robin Williams as the wax Teddy Roosevelt and Owen Wilson as a miniature cowboy round out this somewhat all-star cast and make for a good couple hours of laughs.

Take the kids, sit back and enjoy.
