The first film was released on December 22, 2006, written by Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon of Creator/ComedyCentral's ''Series/{{Reno 911}}'' and MTV's ''TheState'', and directed by Shawn Levy. A new novelization of the screenplay by Leslie Goldman was published as a film tie-in. Larry is a struggling inventor who is trying to bond with his son, so to make ends meet he takes a job as the night guard for the Museum of History. He learns from the retiring guards on how to deal with the various exhibits as they come to life because of a magical tablet displayed with Egyptian royalty Ahkmenrah. Recognizing the responsibility he has to keep order, he also has to fend off a nefarious plot to plunder the museum of its magic and riches.

The second sequel, ''Secret of the Tomb'', was released December 19, 2014. The final mystery of the origin of the tablet is revealed as they have to 'revive' its power since the magic is slowly wearing out, stopping in the middle of public showings. The London Museum holds the answers and with it massive hijinks abound. It was also one of the last film roles for Robin Williams after his suicide in August 2014, and for Mickey Rooney, who passed away in April of the same year; Rooney's appearance allowed him to become the first (and possibly only) actor to appear in a motion picture in '''10''' consecutive decades.

Added DiffLines:

* EasilyForgiven: It's revealed that Larry not only forgave the three villains of the first film, he helped ensure their early release.


Added DiffLines:

** Rebel Wilson's character, at least during her initial scene, is nearly identical in personality and attitude, not to mention in terms of being a barrier to Larry, to Jonah Hill's security guard character in the second film.

* WilliamTelling: Possibly harmless, since done by the star constellations, i.e. it's just lightshow and can't hurt anybody...unless the magic goes havoc, of course.
