Tonight (With Lyrics)
This morning before I went to do part one of the laundry (yes, it is so bad it is going to take two trips) I watched Night in the Museum. And if you have never seem that movie, I highly recommend it. It is about a Night Watchman learning the secret of a Museum he has been hired to look after. I love the movie, for not only is it clean, but I get to live through this movie I always wondered as a child.
What happens when the lights are turned off in a Museum at night? Do the figures come to life and have their way with the place. You know, when the cat's away....
Based on the 1993 book by Milan Tren of the same name, the story follows divorced father, Larry Daly (played by Ben Stiller) . A dreamer, who's dreams aren't coming true and keeps getting evicted, needs to finally face reality, get a job, impress his son, and find his destiny.
So Larry is send to apply for a job as a night watchman at New York City's American Museum of Natural History and subsequently discovers that the exhibits, animated by a magical Egyptian artifact, come to life at night.
It is where Larry finds his destiny.
And as the later Martin Luther King said; "There is honour in all work.
It stars Ben Stiller, but it is Dick Van Dyke (Cecil) Micky Roony (Gus) and Bill Cobbs (Reginald) the three old former Watchmen that steals the movie.
At the end, with the running of the credits, the above song is played. During the running of the credits, you see Cecil, Micky and Reginald dancing with their mops and at one point, Cecil stops to do the 'bootie dance"
Personaly, I think that scence should have made it way into the movie.
And the above song has now the music I workout to.
