Animated comedy adventure written and directed by Chris Butler. The story follows Sir Lionel Frost (Hugh Jackman), a brave and dashing adventurer, the world’s foremost investigator of myths and monsters. He sets off on an adventure to the Pacific Northwest to prove the existence of a legendary creature, Mr. Link (Zach Galifianakis).
As species go, he’s as endangered as they get, he’s possibly the last of his kind, he’s lonely, and he believes that Sir Lionel is the one man alive who can help him. Proposing a daring quest to find his rumored distant relatives, he enlists the help of Sir Lionel, and Adelina Fortnight (Zoe Saldana), a free-spirited, independent adventurer who possesses the only known map to their secret destination, in an odyssey around the world to find the fabled valley of Shangri-La.
Mr. Link: Excuse me. Hi.
Sir Lionel Frost: You can speak?!
Mr. Link: Yes, and, um, I write as well.
[he holds up the letter he’d written to Sir Lionel]
Mr. Link: My penmanship isn’t great, but, uh, you know, opposable thumbs and fat fingers, you know.
[Sir Lionel starts laughing about Mr. Link’s name]
Sir Lionel Frost: You know, like “missing link”.
Mr. Link: Ah. Wait, I don’t get it.
[as Sir Lionel is taking his measurements]
Mr. Link: More like six hundred and thirty pounds. You know, it’s the hair that makes me look heavier I think. It’s a little deceptive, it’s really frustrating.
Mr. Link: [to Sir Lionel] Oh. Wait a second, I said, “Oh,” like I knew what you were talking about, but I don’t.
Mr. Link: [to Sir Lionel] On the other side of the world are my cousins. Can you take me there?
Adelina Fortnight: I know the secret ways to the mountains.
[as they are sat in a train]
Mr. Link: Is it hot in here?
Sir Lionel Frost: By all means, crack open the win…
[suddenly Mr. Link smashes the train window with his fist to crack it open]
Sir Lionel Frost: …dow.
Mr. Link: Oh, that’s better.
Sir Lionel Frost: I’ll bring back proof of the greatest discovery of the century.
[as Mr. Link tears off his shirt to reveal himself and old tribeswoman yells in horror and passes out]
Mr. Link: Um…
Tribeswoman: You have killed my grandmother!
Adelina Fortnight: Quick, quick, quick, someone should give her the kiss of life!
[they both look at the unconscious older woman; to Mr. Link]
Sir Lionel Frost: You’re the man for the job.
Mr. Link: How’s my breath?
Sir Lionel Frost: Throw me out of the pit.
Mr. Link: I think you might be a little too heavy.
Sir Lionel Frost: Nonsense. Now, give it all you’ve got.
[Mr. Link throws him and Sir Lionel smashes into the ice wall and slides down]
Mr. Link: Ooph. It’s hard to know who’s fault that was. Let’s do it again.
