A nice, gentle and slightly quirky film that I enjoyed more than I was expecting.
Basic plot is quite simple……normal person “Walter Mitty” daydreams a lot (or “zones out” as Americans like to say) about doing exciting things but never has enough courage to do them in real life and something comes along to change that…….
I’m not a big fan of Ben Stiller (can’t stand Zoolander) but in this, he does a really good job of portraying a normal chap with the potential in him waiting to escape.
You get to see some unusual settings and you are never quite sure which way it is going to go, apart from the ending which is inevitable (but in a good way).
Verdict: A light, warm hearted and enjoyable tale which can be enjoyed by the whole family.
- Enjoyable and Warm Hearted
- Doesn't push any Boundaries
