The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty

Mild language and sex references. Some scary scenes.

About this Film

'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty' is a fantastical action-comedy about an ordinary man with an extremely active imagination.

When reality gets too stressful for timid photographer Walter, he retreats into the safety of his daydreams. Here, he imagines himself as a fearless hero fighting the elements during epic quests and impressing his co-worker Cheryl (Kristen Wiig). Until one day, rather unexpectedly, the realms of reality and fantasy begin to overlap and Walter finds himself on a real-life adventure.

Directed by and starring Ben Stiller, 'The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty' also features Sean Penn.

Ben Stiller dreams a dream…

What does Ben Stiller dream about? In 2010, the year Little Fockers made $300m and Greenberg got ignored, it’s easy to imagine him dreaming of making The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty. The story of a man who wants to be taken seriously – a mix of arthouse aspirations, mainstream schlock and goofy comedy – it’s a perfect fit for the guy who’s spent his career looking slightly uncomfortable in his comfort zone.

I am giving a low score as this was not the movie I was hoping to see. It is billed as a fun adventure, which at times it is, but it was also quite grey and serious. Impressive cinematography though

Ben Stiller at his best! I went to see this film with my 11 year old boy and we both enjoyed a lot. Loved it! Such a positive comedy-drama! I have never seen Ben Stiller being the person he was in this movie. Absolutely wonderful film.

Loved it!

This was such an enjoyable film - breathtaking cinematic moments and excellent acting by Ben Stiller. Loved the way the story was "modernised" including the hilarious online dating references. The skateboarding scene was unforgettable!

A Hidden Gem

Great movie with a subtle build. Keeps your attention throughout and when the credits role you will realise you've just witnessed something that will live long in the memory. Stick with it and enjoy the journey a few truly magical cinematic moments.
