Our whole family enjoyed watching this - we were all rooting for Walter by the end.

James Thurber wrote a good story. The locations looked great, including New York. Stiller acts like he is acting. Old-toto cannot separate the "ham from the wry" to paraphrase Mike Nichols, RIP. Little details, apparently meaningless to Stiller, such as using strips of cloth to hold stones in his hands to facilitate going around curves at high speed on a skateboard, or jumping from a helicopter into the North Atlantic rough seas, destroyed my willingness to suspend reality. Like a discerning person has already quipped: "When it is 4:30 in the morning...". Believe him/her!!!

Interesting and enjoyable fantasy. David Bowie's David Tom never sounded so good than in the context of this movie.

I expected more from the movie but it was still good.

Not wanting to give away too much, I’ll just say that, for me, the movie hits a major low when it makes reference to another film. The landscape and the music make the second half better than the first.

I enjoyed this film, but I felt like there was something missing. The film is gorgeous, casting of Sean Penn was perfect and it has Kristen Wiig, but I was left wanting to see the original with Danny Kaye.

Nice directing job by Ben Stiller.
The regular usage of practical effects and actual location shooting away from a green screen makes for some inspirational thoughts to brew in one's own over-urbanized mind.
One of my "stars" goes solely to Kristen Wiig, as I have never found her so utterly witty & charming,
I'd fall for her too <3

I really enjoyed this clever film. Some of the locations were breathtakingly beautiful. A witty and relatable storyline and a well-done ending make this a joy to watch.

Not great, but a somewhat unique film. Generally entertaining. Didn't fast forward much.

Cheryl: I wanted to tell you, that song "Major Tom" and that beard guy... he doesn't know what he's talking about. That song is about courage and going into the unknown. It's a cool song.
Walter: I just live by the ABCs: Adventurous, Brave, Creative.
Sean: Beautiful things don't ask for attention.
