The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (directed by Ben Stiller)
Starring: Ben Stiller, Kristen Wiig, Kathryn Hahn, Adam Scott, Adrian Martinez, Shirley MacLaine, Marcus Antturi, Amy Stiller, Kai Lennox, Sean Penn
My thoughts on this film: This was one of those movies where I really did not know what to expect, but I ended up enjoying it. There is a nice message to this and it is a feel good movie. Definitely worth seeing on the big screen. I am used to Ben Stiller playing idiotic characters so, although this has comedy elements, it was a breath of fresh air, and in my personal opinion, a lot more enjoyable.
The only part that felt odd and made me go back to other Ben Stiller - not so funny - movies was the Benjamin Button bit. I think the film could have done without those scenes!
Otherwise it was great to watch and I would definitely recommend it!
