Prepare to take a night off in April!

Night at the Museum, the "romping, stomping good ride" (San Francisco Chronicle) hit, action-comedy that stayed in the top five at the box-office for 8 weeks, comes to DVD on April 24, 2007 from Fox Home Entertainment featuring a wild collection of extras. Ben Stiller (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, Meet the Parents, There's Something About Mary) stars as Larry Daley, an unlucky, yet hopeful dreamer who takes a job as a graveyard-shift security guard at the famous museum. When it closes at night, Larry soon learns that things are not what they seem when a Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton wants to play fetch, an Easter Island monolith talks to him and Attila The Hun attacks. With the museum denizens loose and not wanting to lose his job, Larry turns to a re-animated wax figure of President Theodore Roosevelt (played by Oscar®-winner Robin Williams, Best Supporting Actor, Good Will Hunting, 1998) to help save the museum. Night at the Museum also stars Paul Rudd (The 40-Year-Old Virgin) and some of Hollywood's all-time favorite comedians Dick Van Dyke (The Dick Van Dyke Show, Diagnosis Murder) and Mickey Rooney (The Black Stallion).

Synopsis:

Ben Stiller leads an all-star cast, including Robin Williams, in this hilarious blockbuster hit. When Larry Daley (Stiller) is hired as Museum night watchman, he soon discovers that all the exhibits come to life after the sun sets. Suddenly, Larry finds himself face to face with frisky T-Rex skeleton, tiny armies of Romans and Cowboys and a mischievous monkey who taunts him to the breaking point. But Larry may just figure out a way to control the chaos and become a hero in his son's eyes. Boasting jaw-dropping special effects and big laughs, Night at the Museum is your ticket to non-stop fun!
