Stuff your own travel-sized critter! There's not much more to it than that…

EXCEPT, when they say “while supplies last,” they mean it. This event is only an hour long but I kid you not, these little stuffed animals are out of stock in less than 15 minutes.

While on tour promoting her new book, Loretta gets kidnapped by an eccentric billionaire who hopes she can lead him to an ancient city's lost treasure from her latest story. Determined to prove he's more than just a pretty face, Alan sets off to rescue her. 

Receiving generally positive reviews from critics, “The Lost City” grossed $100 million worldwide against a $68 million budget.
