We have been alerted to the first early report on Night at the Museum and it is pretty positive.
Night at the Museum Reviewed
The good people over at AICN have received the first screening report for Night at the Museum starring Ben Stiller and the reviewer claims the film is everything a person can want in a family adventure.
First off, it is very hard to have any complaints about a movie that, when upon exiting, I felt was a very solid family adventure. Much like "Jumanji," "The Santa Clause" and "The Indian in the Cupboard" in heart, "A Night at the Museum" brings to life many fantasies that we as children had about things in the museum coming to life.
Now, even with the obvious drawbacks of screenings (scratchy soundtrack, temp music, unfinished visual effects), the film was still edited very solid, and had a great flow that was consistent and entertaining after the first 15 minutes of introduction.
A few great comedic moments abound in this film, but the real heart lies in the stimulation of the imagination, and the fantasies of our childhood. The movie will be a marvel for children to watch come Christmas time, and the skeleton T-Rex is very nice - like a big dog who wants you to throw a stick, but in this case, a bone for him to catch.

It is nice to hear that the film looks good so early on; Fox still has at least three months to continue polishing Museum before release.
Night at the Museum opens to theatres on December 22nd.
