throw the bone

A preview screening of "Night at the Museum" was held tonight for radio listeners and some other lucky ticketholders. On the whole, the movie is very enjoyable even if it takes a little too long to get to the good parts. Ben Stiller's comedy monologues got laughs from the rest of the audience but not so much from me. Instead, I laughed every time Ricky Gervais started to speak. And I say "started" because he never really finished. Watch for the funny cameo from Ben Stiller's mother, Anne Meara.

The movie is set in the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. That's the museum I used to visit as a kid. Carla Gugino plays a lovely museum docent. I kept thinking that her character
reminded me of somebody I knew. It came to me as the closing credits rolled. In this movie, Carla looked like WBIR's Beth Haynes.
