The Secret Life of Walter Mitty


In this comedic adaptation of James Thurber's short story, Ben Stiller stars as Walter, a milquetoast proofreader for a magazine publishing firm. Walter is constitutionally incapable of standing up for himself, so he retreats into his fantasy world, where he is heroic, poised, self-assured, and the master of his fate. Stiller directed from a script by Steven Conrad, with Kristen Wiig, Patton Oswalt, and Shirley MacLaine rounding out the starring cast. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi Critics

Well-Done Movie about Living Life to the Fullest by phillipwhite91
What a surprising movie! Although the trailer helped me to see that this wouldn't be a typical Ben Stiller movie, I still didn't expect to be moved to tears...

I was never bug fan of ben stiller but after seeing this movie I changed my mind. it was a nice movie with deep conversions and stuning scenes.
