    Is this a recast of his son (who was played by Jake Cherry in the first two films), or are they giving Stiller's character an additional son?

      I heard somewhere that the storyline was revolving around his son being the head of the museum he works for, so I assume this is supposed to be a new never mentioned before, younger son!

    Another unnecessary sequel, now his son is suppose to be head of the museum, give it a rest, don't even know who this kid is, what happened to Jake Cherry?

    Give it a rest, how many times can you see a museum come to life. I saw Amazing Spider Man, don't remember seeing this kid in it!
