The Secret Life of Walter Mitty


secretlifewaltermitty13Life Magazine employee Walter Mitty (Ben Stiller) is a first-rate daydreamer, but unable to make his real life excitingā€¦ until the day he needs to save his job and find a lost negative. Neither this initially much-hyped project nor the original Danny Kaye film have much in common with James Thurber’s story. Mitty’s day dreams are elaborate adventures, but Stiller’s interest in them feels half-hearted and his obviously serious intentions are undermined by a predictable message about fulfilling your dreams. Still, it’s an enjoyable cast and a handsome production, partly filmed in Iceland.

2013-U.S. 114 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ Ben Stiller. Short Story: James Thurber. Cast: Ben Stiller (Walter Mitty), Kristen Wiig (Cheryl Melhoff), Shirley MacLaine (Edna Mitty), Adam Scott, Kathryn Hahn, Sean Pennā€¦ Patton Oswalt.Ā 

Trivia:Ā Jim Carrey and Owen Wilson were allegedly considered for the lead.
