Take the ride! It's worth it!

A very beautiful movie. A story about living life, being aware of what's around us, and making sure we eat that delicious pie, literally. Ben Stiller is a warm, thoughtful, funny, and courageous hero. With that straight face reacting to those around him with nary an eye flutter, he allows us to fill in the emotional blanks. Getting involved with Kristin Wiig, his female counterpart, makes a perfect pairing, Able to match his warmth with her own laid back hesitancy, this lady can also SING, seriously. Adam Scott gives us a superb, smarmy bad guy that we love to hate and special kudos to Sean Penn. Setting us up for his appearance from the get-go, Penn surpasses our anticipation, presenting a man so fully realized that the wait was worth it. With exotic, breathtaking locations, this is a film so thoroughly cinematic, many audiences may not get it. It is, in many ways, like watching a lost art. Stiller directs a funny, warm, and touching script with the hand of an artist.

Ben Stiller does an awesome job of capturing the essence of Walter. The visuals are astounding. Sean Penn says very little, but captures the character very well. Great screenplay. Loved the final cover of Life magazine! It was a little slow for kids, but my 11-year old sat through it.
