This $177 million–earning follow-up to the 2006 comedy finds former guard Larry (Ben Stiller) hitting the Smithsonian to save his museum-dwelling pals from an evil Pharaoh. Once again, paintings, rockets and statues ingeniously come alive -- notably Amelia Earhart (a bright Amy Adams) and miniature cowboy Jedediah (the ever-charming Owen Wilson). (20th Century Fox, $30)
