Joining him at various points throughout the new film, Jonah Hill who is everywhere since co-starring with Michael Cera in Superbad, joins Night at the Museum 2 as security detail for the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. Hank Azaria joins the cast of characters as Kahmunra a passed over Egyptian would be Pharoh and older brother of Akmunrah. Canada's own Eugene Levy, provides the voice for the over animated miniature Albert Einsteins.
Overall while the film benefits from a more engaging storyline than the stuffy original, it suffers from a chaotic overload of banter between the primary antagonists and protagonist of the picture to useless lines exchanged between second string extras. With few redeeming moments such as those between Ben and his leading lady Amy Adams, and CGI effects are really the most mind blowing aspect of the film. The manner in which they seamlessly blend the interactions between characters and objects that clearly do not exist is fantastic. Hank Azaria, while the standout character of the flick, is grandious in his expressions and extremely intense. Want to see what I mean? Just watch this clip and you'll get the idea.
