Tried again to watch this movie and again turned it off after 15 minutes. So pointless.

Rated 1/10. Very disappointed with this one. The best part of the show was the end. Can't recommend.

This movie is SO good, funny, poignant - awesome! It made me laugh out loud so often, I kept having to stop it and go back because I'd missed dialogue! I highly recommend for everyone. And you will immediately want to find the recipe for Clementine Cake!

Not my kind of movie. Picked it up because I'd always seen it around and decided to give it a chance.

Very boring and rather long, I had a hard time finishing it. Nothing noteworthy really happens. No villains, no danger, no comedy, no real plot at all.

It went for epic, I think it made its point well enough.

Walter Mitty (Ben Stiller, yawn) is a shy recluse who manages the photo negatives department at Life magazine’s New York headquarters. Spicing up his otherwise humdrum life with elaborate daydreams Walter’s in the habit of zoning out at the oddest times—staring blankly in the middle of a conversation while he fantasizes about rescuing a damsel in distress or thwarting his super villain boss on the streets of Manhattan. Needless to say this peculiar habit has made him the butt of more than one jokester, especially Ted Hendricks the douchebag manager in charge of downsizing the company as Life abandons its magazine format and goes digital. But when Walter is entrusted with the periodical’s final cover picture supplied by a famous globe-trotting photojournalist, he loses the negative and thus begins a real life adventure which sees him fighting sharks in the north Atlantic, braving volcanoes in Iceland, and hiking through the Himalayas as he tries to track down the notoriously elusive shutterbug. Despite some clever opening credits and fantasy sequences, touristy views of Iceland and Greenland (Iceland again), and a few star cameos, this remake of the 1947 Danny Kaye classic is a predictable hodgepodge of “self realization” riffs (Walter’s adventures abroad expand his horizons!) and romantic fluff—his online pursuit of a fellow employee (Kristen Wiig, another yawn) giving rise to a couple of silly E-Harmony schticks. Not quite the imaginative epic it sets out to be but it did manage to keep me mildly amused.

This is a truly moving story of taking chances, living in the moment, and ultimately enjoying life.

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.
