Exploring: Night at the Museum 2 Battle of the Smithsonian

night_at_the_museum_2_posterNight at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian is the second in the Night at the Museum movies.  In it we follow security guard Larry Daley as he infiltrates the Smithsonian Institute in order to rescue Jedediah and Octavius, who have been shipped to the museum by mistake.

I really enjoyed the first Night at the Museum movie but I'm not holding my breath for this one.  From the trailers it looks like one badly repeated stale joke after another.  What worries me the most is that I only chuckled once at  one moment from the trailers.  My rationale is that trailers tend to feature the best the movie has to offer and if that is their best I'm not impressed.  The early reviews have only supported this concern.

I'm doubting if I will even rent this movie.  More then likely I will be made to watch it by family and expect to only enjoy the moments spent with family during that time.
