The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (PG-13) 114 mins B
Major Tom finds Life
Starring Ben Stiller, Kristin Wiig, Sean Penn, Shirley MacLaine, Adam Scott, Kathryn Hahn, Patton Oswalt and Adrian Martinez
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty was a little too whimsical for my taste. However, I did relate to the protagonist and the film's main idea- it's never too late pursue your dreams, live life to the fullest, turn the ordinary into the extraordinary, yadayadayada... I also liked Ben Stiller as Walter Mitty and Kristen Wiig as his love interest. As a matter of fact, the best moment (by far) in the film is when Wiig sings "Space Oddity." The Secret Life of Walter Mitty isn't great, but I have to admit that it stayed with me for days afterwards. I recommend this film to daydreamers and those who prefer a "dialed down" Ben Stiller.
