First I want to say I just plain enjoyed the movie. If your OK with a movie that challenges the assumptions that have you stuck, this is "one of those kind of movies.'so go see it'
You can decide whether it's light or heavy. I found it to be both

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....

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.

I saw this movie with my wife and daughter (home from college on winter break) and we all enjoyed it. Ben Stiller's Walter is vulnerable and decent - and his comic moments are refreshingly subdued. Kristen Wiig is sweet and attractive as Walter's love interest, and she gets a brief opportunity to demonstrate a surprisingly lovely singing voice. Important, if short, roles for Patton Oswald and Sean Penn are hilarious and intriguing, respectively. The rest of the supporting cast does a fine job. The cinematography is, at moments, breathtakingly beautiful. The only weak spot in the movie is the plot, which is a little thin. All told, a very enjoyable way to spend two hours.
