Where did you watch this movie?

Larry Daley is a divorced man whose ex-wife believes that he is a bad example to their ten-year-old son Nick. A down-and-out dreamer whose imaginative ideas have never paid off, Larry finds himself in desperate need of a job. Always having believed he was destined for big things, he has no idea just how literally gargantuan and hairy a challenge he will face when he grudgingly accepts the supposedly menial graveyard shift as a security guard at the Natural History Museum. To his utter astonishment and disbelief, Larry watches in shock and awe as, one by one, the primeval beasts and storied icons that surround him stir magically to life--and total havoc ensues. Facing the possibility of losing his job and letting down his son Nick yet again, Larry must wage an incredible battle to save the museum, hoping to become at last the bold, adventurous dad he's always wanted to be.

The "Hunnish" language was completely improvised during filming.

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson were only on-set together for a single day.

Ben Stiller talked to a toothpick for the Jedediah scenes. Owen Wilson filmed all of his parts three months later.

Following the film's release, the actual American Museum of Natural History had twenty percent more visitors during the holiday season.
