night at the museum 2: with the jonas brothers


Loopy just had to see Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian tonight, opening night. The you-know-who brothers made a little appearance in it.  In order to prep for the event, we downloaded the original Night at the Museum starring Ben Stiller on Apple TV last night and watched it... good thing we did.  A few of the jokes and a bit of the story might have been lost on us if we'd not seen it.  But don't fret if you haven't seen the first one either, it's not rocket science, you'll catch up.

The movie was cute and light.  Little things irritated me, like the fact that paintings American Gothic (by Grant Wood) and  Nighthawks (by Edward Hopper) aren't housed at the Smithsonian, they are at The Art Institute of Chicago.  You aren't supposed to think about things like that when you watch movies, right?  It's suspended reality, and I need to get over it.

So if you are a Jonas Brothers fan and paying full movie admission to catch a glimpse of them animated as naked marble babies doesn't bother you, go.  They appeared for longer than we expected them to. Otherwise, you can catch this one on cable before Christmas.  Three out of five cupcakes, one for each Jonai.  Check out the "making of" video below.  They look cute, even as marble angel babies!  Kevin's cherub even has sideburns.

On Monday we will be announcing the winner of our trip for two to see the Jonas Brothers in Edmonton, Canada!  Good luck to everyone who entered!  We have lots of comments to sort through.

That bootcamp video made me laugh so hard! Especially when Joe gets sent to the creative corner by the director and Nick screams FLIES and storms off. Kevin needs to get more involved in these things :\ I still want to see the movie after having seen the first one..mostly because of Owen Wilson <3 lol.

Friends,

YouTube appears to have crashed. Check back later for the live link to the video. You won't be disappointed!

I enjoyed the first film. I thought it was light and sweet, and sometimes movies like that are just the thing. Maybe the artwork was on loan. I've seen lots of paintings that way...ya gotta use your imagination!

Not you too! It takes my dh a long time to get over issues within movies. It took him at least 2 weeks to get over the fact that Tom Hanks character in Cast Away didn't use glass/mirror to start a fire. As I say to him, "it's fiction, just fiction!"

The video was a scream; makes me wish my daughter was in the wild & wacky Jonas Brothers camp - I had no idea they were so darling...

Thank you for a good morning chuckle :D
