Tad is a celebrity archaeologist and adventurer just like his hero Max Mordon... in his dreams! In reality, Tad is a Chicago construction worker. One day, however, he is mistaken for a real professor and takes his place on a flight to Peru in search of the lost city of Paititi.
Rough watch, probably won't watch again, and can't confidently recommend, unless it's for younger audiences...and even then, probably no. This movie feels like a first attempt. Tad is actually a charming underdog character, Sarah plays well as an attraction for the lead and an independently grown character which shows so much intricacy from a writing perspective that the rest of the non-animal characters are baffling. There is just so little here to work with that I don't have a lot to say. The train action sequence was actually decent, but I was wasn't engaged with the movie for the majority of the time. I think this is better skipped, but if you actually like this, then there is a sequel that is slightly better.
