This is a very sweet movie. It's a significant departure from the short story - but it is enjoyable. It's a nice combination of humor, pathos, and cheer. The performances are great. I'v never been too partial to Ben Stiller or Kristen Wiig, but both were delightful here.
BUT my favorite part of the film was cinematography, which was stunning. Nearly every moment in the entire film is artistic. The views of Iceland are fabulous. I'd like to see this film again just to enjoy the visual treats.

What a great movie! It had all the elements of adventure, love and loss. It was brilliantly directed and felt like we were traveling with him. We took our two boys ages 6 and 10. Knowing it would be a little long for the 6 year old since it wasn't animated, we also packed some snacks. He was pretty entertained throughout the movie, however, just hiding his eyes on the kissing parts. There are so few movies these days that a whole family can go to and enjoy for different reasons and yet still receive a poignant message. I highly recommend this do all families with kids over 5!

Ben Stiler does a great job in the leading role walking us through the movie. As for the movie itself, like most day dreams it's funny sad and wierd all at the same time and it probably would have fallen flat if it wasn't for Ben Stiler and some of the one liners in the movie. I thought it was very enjoyable though some might have thought it slow and dragging. I would recommend it as a nice way to spend a night out.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty was a terrific film! The acting was outstanding, the scenery was beautiful, and the life was fun to be a part of! I appreciated that people of any age could enjoy this movie.
