Definitely worth watching. A film that would make you believe that some things aren't impossible as you think they are.

Interesting and cute movie :) Walter Mitty never makes any waves, at work or in life, but (day)dreams about it, especially during the day while people are watching! Not a great movie, but it has some really beautiful scenes in Irland, Afghanistan... Worth the watch! It's a movie about how it's never too late to make your dreams come true, no matter how impossible you think it is =)

Die meisten Kunden gaben mir die DVD zurück und betonten, wie sehr sie den Film hassen würden. Ist Ben Stillers Herzensprojekt wirklich so schlecht? Jahrelang konnte dieses Projekt nicht umgesetzt werden, so dass das Erstaunlichste an Walter Mitty die Tatsache ist, dass es den Film nun gibt! Walter Mitty (Ben Stiller) ist ein schüchterner und weltfremder Archivar für das Life Magazin.. In seiner Fantasie aber ist Mitty ein Superheld und driftet immer wieder in imaginäre Heldentaten ab: Mitty springt aus fliegenden Helikoptern und kann sich in letzter Sekunde vor einem ausbrechenden Vulkan retten. In der Realität aber ist Mittys Job bedroht und er traut sich nicht, seine attraktive Kollegin (Kristen Wiig) zu daten. Einstecken muss er auch gegen die Starfotografen seines Magazins …

"To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life." This reviewer is a sucker for life related quotes or films, this is definitely one of them. From the character development, spectacular cinematography, skilled cut scenes, acting and vibrant soundtrack, this picture was a fresh of breath air. The actor/director even utilizes gestures in certain scenes coupled with focus shots rarely scene in today's age. So many memorable lines: "Life is about courage and going into the unknown." from Cheryl, "If I like a moment, for me, personally, I don't like to have the distraction of the camera. I just want to stay in it." from Sean and "Good. Less is good!" from Todd. Subjects of transformation, …

This movie by ben stiller is. a nice idea of a guy who day dreams from the reality of his boring life then goes on a real adventure but nothing is realistic even when he is doing things for real its just totally stupid , he manages to leave work do things that would take weeks then return. The whole thing is just not very thought out and hard to take seriously. nice concept but it fails in so many ways.
even the guy who comes in to take over the business and people are going to lose their jobs. not one person seems to care. its just really unrealistic. yet it wants you to care for the character. it goes nowhere and leaves you thinking was that it.. surprised to see sean penn in a small role.
nice concept. nice try but its not a very good movie
