Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian.
Conservatives are advised to avoid this movie. This is a sequel to the successful and funny 2006 film "Night at the Museum". In both movies the premise is that a magic tablet allows the museum characters to come alive at night after sunset. However, this movie proves the old adage that quite often the sequel is not as good as the original.
The movie would be bad enough even without the shots at George W. Bush. A particular galling moment is when the come alive character General George Custer, whose voice sounds like George Bush, says that he feels so ashamed at leading Americans to a needless death.
Another sad moment is when the come to life Roman General gazes at the White House and utters the line: "They say a good man now rules the Union".
The final straw for me was when Abraham Lincoln gazes toward the White House and says something to the effect that: "Everything is looking up."
Did those three lines ruin the movie or was it already bad?
Thanks. I will withhold my dollars too. Too bad, I enjoyed the first one.
Thanks for the heads up. Hollyweird is not getting my ten bucks.
The movie was already bad, the lines just added insult to injury. The movie compared to the original was plodding and slow.
I just got back from driving to DC to see the movie at the IMAX they have in the Natural History Museum. The movie was bad enough without the pathetic attempts on the part of the movie’s producers / Director to demonstrate their undying devotion to the great leader.
This movie was as bad, as the first one was good. Save your money.
Thanks! Too bad.
Thanks for the heads up/ I will make it a point to actively avoid ever watching this garbage.
If I had the pic I would love to post that line: “They say, a good man now rules the union” under that pic of Zero unshaven with the cigarette in his hand.
and forgot to mention that who really got terminated is director McG. Terminator Salvation looks like it desperately needs to be salvaged. I just never thought having Christian “WTF do you not understand” Bale as John Connor was a VERY bad casting decision.
Be that as it may, the movie takes liberties with history but the important thing is that we enrich our childrens lives with an understanding and appreication of History.
Memorial Day is a good time to remember!
Gag. The previews looked funny (as always), so you probably saved me 8 bucks + popcorn...
“However, this movie proves the old adage that quite often the sequel is not as good as the original.”
Wow. The first one stunk. This must be outstandingly bad.
Thanks for the heads up.
I just don’t see how you got that take on the movie. Dubya is not in the White House now.
Crap! I just got back from seeing it. Too bad I didn’t see your post first.
Marked off the list.
Saw it, liked it.
Hey thank you for posting this.
I am really getting tired of this “Blame Bush for Everything” approach that we have been getting the last 8+ years.
