Ben Stiller has a couple of trademark styles of comedy, but his techniques lent themselves well to the “Night at the Museum” films. Cast as the main character, Larry Daley (a night guard for the museum), his sole purpose was to guard the museum at night – but the magic takes over, and the museum exhibits come to life.
Some of the exhibits cause serious trouble for Larry, including Laaa, the Neanderthal, who is also played by Stiller. At first, it’s hard to distinguish Stiller underneath all of the prosthetics; but once you notice it,a it’s clear to see.
