Love the Secret Life

I love this movie. As a kid, I read Walter Mitty stories and always loved the idea of a mental vacation or quick get-a-way to great adventures while teachers droned on about algebra or social studies. This movie has everything I always loved about that idea: a great mental adventure that turns out to be real; one that has real consequences that, ultimately, changes lives. Ben Stiller is great not only as an actor but also director and producer. I would classify this movie as a quiet man's Indiana Jones adventure and one we can all connect with. I highly recommend this movie.

Live your dreams!

This movie is about living your dreams and making every moment count. That may sound cheesy, but this movie inspires all of us to think about the meaning of our lives and what we do with them. Secret Life has little to do with the story of the same name by James Thurber (one of my all-time faves), but it's still a great movie. Ben Stiller, Kristen Wiig, and Sean Penn all deliver great performances. This movie is not meant to be Oscar-level high cinema, but at the end, I felt good and I cried. It was worth seeing on the big screen, and I hope it becomes a blockbuster. Do yourself a favor and go see it. Now.

Not a single "ta-pucket"......

Definitely a feel good movie. The day-dreaming sequences are well done, but I didn't hear a single ta-pucket in any of them. Stiller re-imagined the character in more modern terms, and I think it was better for it. Go see the movie, smile and go home.

I've always liked Ben Stiller. He did a great job directing and acting in Walter Mitty. It's got some beautiful, breathtaking moments. Sean Penn, Kristen Wiig and everyone else deliver to make Walter Mitty a memorable film.
