Movie Review: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty


We all know that during the winter months, going to the movie theater or even staying home to snuggle up with some blankets and watch a movie in your favorite pajamas, is the best way to escape the frigid weather. If you’re looking for a light-hearted movie, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is the one to see. It’s a film that everyone will enjoy, whether it’s your sorority sister, your boyfriend, or a family member.

Walter Mitty, played by Ben Stiller, is your ordinary guy with an average, rather boring, life. He gets a complete reality check when he is called by an employee of the dating site he is on who asks what he has done or where he has traveled, for the purpose of sprucing up his profile. After thinking it over, he realizes that he has no activities or places to list. This is just one of the factors that drive him to transform his lackluster life.   

The film follows his inspiring, romantic, comedic and epic journey to live a less boring life. This is a heartwarming film that is sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face.
