It isn’t the greatest of franchises but that doesn’t make it any easier to say goodbye to “Night at the Museum.” The third and final installment, “Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb,” of the zany, entertainment-for-all vehicle also marks the last screen appearance of Robin Williams, who died last year.

The film doesn’t deploy Williams’ talents to full advantage or allot him much screen time, but it is perhaps a tribute of sorts. After all, Williams’ turn as a wax model of Theodore Roosevelt — who comes to life once again within the confines of the Museum of Natural History in New York — endeared him to audiences too young to know “Good Will Hunting.”
