Storyline

The charismatic Sir Lionel Frost (Hugh Jackman) considers himself to be the world's foremost investigator of myths and monsters. The trouble is none of his small-minded high-society peers seems to recognize this. Sir Lionel's last chance for acceptance by the adventuring elite rests on traveling to America's Pacific Northwest to prove the existence of a legendary creature. A living remnant of Man's primitive ancestry. The Missing Link (Zach Galifianakis). Written by LAIKA

Crazy Credits

The closing credits are written as notations on various objects that Sir Lionel and Mr. Link use to plan their next adventure. At one point, Mr. Link drags a plate of cookies across the frame and eats one off-screen.

At the end of the credits, Mr. Link finishes off a drawing of him and Sir Lionel smiling next to one another. See more »
