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.

This movie started slow for me but in the end, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It touches on the imagination of things you wished said or ways you wish you acted but didn't, the social issue of changing times and workers who are considered "obsolete" and the lengths we'll go for our jobs but also taking time to be present to capture special moments, how people can inspire us to be brave, and how there's just some things that never change about us from childhood. The music and scenery added beautiful touches to the movie.

A few super-funny spots - would have liked to have laughed more. Overall a nice tale and fitting homage to the worker behind the scenes.

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.
