QUICK TAKE:
Animated Comedy/Adventure: A late 19th century explorer agrees to help Sasquatch find more of his kind in the Himalayas.
PLOT:
It's the 1880s and Sir Lionel Frost (voice of HUGH JACKMAN) is an English explorer who's perpetually searching for mythical beasts, such as the Loch Ness Monster. He desires to earn admittance into Lord Piggot-Dunceby's (voice of STEPHEN FRY) high society Optimates Club of big game hunters, but all of them look down on him. Accordingly, when he receives a letter that the legendary Sasquatch has been sighted in Washington State, he travels there and finds the creature with a bet that if he does, Lord Piggot-Dunceby will allow him entry into his club.

It doesn't take Lionel long to find Mr. Link (voice of ZACH GALIFIANAKIS) who's revealed to be anything but a beast. While he has the appearance of a cross between a human and a huge hairy ape, he's polite, reserved and can speak, although he takes most everything Lionel says literally, including figures of speech.

But what Mr. Link most wants is for Lionel to take him to the Himalayas so that he can overcome his loneliness by being among the Yeti there. Knowing that a former fellow explorer had maps of that part of the world, Lionel takes Mr. Link to see that man's widow, Adelina Fortnight (voice of ZOE SALDANA), but she's initially reluctant to help, what with the two of them having had a relationship in the past. She eventually changes her mind but only on the condition that she come along for the expedition.

Having learned of Lionel's discovery and not wanting to lose the bet and have to admit him to his club, Lord Piggot-Dunceby hires hitman Willard Stenk (voice of TIMOTHY OLYPHANT) to locate Lionel and his find and kill both of them. Stenk repeatedly tries to do just that, but the unlikely trio manage to avoid him and continue their travels toward the Himalayas where they eventually meet the Yeti Ruler (voice of EMMA THOMPSON).

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Younger kids probably will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
