Missing Link #Movie

AVAILABLE NOW!
RATED PG
95 MINUTES

AMAZON


Sir Lionel Frost is a brave and dashing adventurer who considers himself to be the world's foremost investigator of myths and monsters. The trouble is, no one else seems to agree. He sees a chance to prove himself by traveling to America's Pacific Northwest to discover the world's most legendary creature: The Missing Link, a living remnant of Man's primitive ancestry. Mr Link is the slightly silly, surprisingly smart, and soulful beast who Sir Lionel discovers. 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. Together they set out on a daring quest around the world to seek out Link's distant relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La.
Starring Hugh Jackman, Zoe Saldana and Zach Galifianakis.

Andie must learn to embrace the beauty in chaos in this New York Times bestselling novel about friendship, finding yourself, and all the joys in life that happen while you’re busy making other plans.

Andie has a plan. And she always sticks to her plan.

Future? A top-tier medical school.
Dad? Avoid him as much as possible (which isn’t that hard considering he’s a Congressman and he’s never around).
Friends? Palmer, Bri, and Toby—pretty much the most awesome people on the planet, who needs anyone else?
Relationships? No one’s worth more than three weeks.

So it’s no surprise that Andie has her summer all planned out too.

Until a political scandal costs Andie her summer pre-med internship, and lands both she and Dad back in the same house together for the first time in years. Suddenly she’s doing things that aren’t Andie at all—working as a dog walker, doing …

This highly anticipated trequel continues the contemporary saga of good versus evil as the teenage daughters and sons of Disney's most infamous villains -- Mal, Evie, Carlos and Jay (also known as the villain kids or VKs) -- return to the Isle of the Lost to recruit a new batch of villainous offspring to join them at Auradon Prep. When a barrier breach jeopardizes the safety of Auradon during their departure off the Isle, Mal resolves to permanently close the barrier, fearing that nemeses Uma and Hades will wreak vengeance on the kingdom.

REVIEW:

So worth watching though, and also sad I hadn't before now.
It was a lighthearted film that had me glued to the end.
