I don’t go to movies very often but I was glad that we decided to see The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. My son had shown me three movie trailers, this movie, Saving Mr. Banks and American Hustle.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is rated PG. That’s my kind of movie. It was funny, clean and quite enjoyable. The film is based on a short story by James Thurber and was first published in The New Yorker back in 1939.
The main character, Walter Mitty (who is played by Ben Stiller), spends a lot of time day dreaming and “zones” out of life. Once he decides to step out of his comfort zone and has a few adventures he becomes “normal.” I love how they use Sean Penn in this movie but not as the main actor which kind of reminded me of Wilson in Home Improvement.
The plot includes Walter Mitty’s crush on a co-worker which turns out … well, you’ll just have to go see it.
Here’s the trailer from the movie ..
I do believe you will enjoy this movie — yes, indeed.
