Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

Corrected entry: During the entry into the room with the nine-headed snake, when the tablet becomes more eroded and the artifacts start to become affected; Theodore Roosevelt begins repeating "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself." It is as though he's gone back to being an artifact and is repeating phrases and quotes for viewers. This quote is however by Franklin Delano Roosevelt in his 1932 first inauguration speech. (01:05:00)


Correction: The corroded tablet is affecting the artifacts negatively. Teddy also says "ask not what you can do for your country" (JFK) and "I am not a crook" (Nixon). He's simply repeating famous sayings from other presidents, not reverting back to his original artifact form (which is also why Attila became cowardly).


Plot hole: In Night at the Museum 2, the parts of the tablet that are missing were attached to the gate to the underworld, which implies it was originally attached to that, and those parts were left behind when it was removed. But in this film we see the tablet getting found on the wall in Ahkmenrah's tomb, and the missing parts are left behind on the wall of the tomb.
