Netflix Synopsis: Ben Stiller returns as hapless museum night watchman Larry Daley in this sequel to the hit comedy. Though he’s now working at the Smithsonian Institution, Daley continues to deal with exhibits that come to life while the museum is closed. His adventures this time include close encounters with Amelia Earhart (Amy Adams), George Custer (Bill Hader) and Ivan the Terrible (Christopher Guest). Owen Wilson, Ricky Gervais and Dick Van Dyke co-star

I really enjoyed the first one so much that I really hoped this one would be an equal. Unfortunately, I felt this fell short of the original. Now obviously this movie is about museum characters coming to life, but the surrounding story seemed a little odd. I am not sure if it was over or underdeveloped, but it didn’t make much sense. That said, the special effects are cool and clean and the “action” scenes were fun.
