movies of 2009

Night At The Museum 2

EB wanted to see this - I'd assumed he'd seen the first with his grandma at some point, but no. To be fair, my expectations weren't high, but we both enjoyed it enormously, though possibly for entirely different reasons.

Amy Adams. Yum. Feisty redheads in leggings and boots. What's not to like?

The story bounced along - Ben Stiller is someone I can take or leave, but he was pretty good in this, as was the rest of the cast, with the possible exception of Ricky Gervais. I mean, I like him as a comic, but he just doesn't seem to *work* in movies. Just turns up and is Ricky. He's not in much though.

So, fun for small boys and big boys. Glad I've seen it, and am looking forward to seeing the first one when it's on telly at the weekend.

I give it seven feisty redheads out of ten.
