A light story presented in a casual fashion. The story line has some flaws so be prepared to suspend reality.... A feel good film where you don't need to bring your entire brain....

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.

Was really surprised at how much this movie spoke to me. From the movie's message of rediscovering who you are, and who you've been afraid to be, to the breathtaking landscapes, locations and cinematography, to the wonderful character acting of Ben Stiller, Kristen Wiig, Sean Penn, and the rest of this great cast, The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty is one of my new favorites and a film I know I'll return to time and again, whenever I feel I've lost my way ... see it and I know you'll feel the same.

Ben Stiller brought this sweet, gentle story to life.
I can't say enough about the photography and locations! I feel as though I was traveling with him!
Certainly he deserves a nod at awards time for the picture, directing AND that nice little note at the end about how many jobs the production and distribution of the movie created!
