I knew absolutely nothing about The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Nothing. Other than that really interesting video of how the marketing budget was used to help feed the needy people of wherever touched by some tragedy. At that point all I knew was the marketing budget was pretty small.
At any rate I hadn’t seen a trailer or anything and had no expectations of the film. However I must say – it’s cute! Ben Stiller delivers in his unique way of charm and complete lack of sexiness that’s engaging and completely not intimidating. Other people star in it as well but who really cares about the other people. If you’re an imaginative person you could relate to the lead character (protagonist for you fancy bitches who studied literature) and his flights of fantasy. Some witty, some action packed but all very interesting.
The actual story is interesting but not the fastest moving of plots but it’s straightforward enough so just relax and enjoy the movie.
I’m less than an hour in and I am writing this recommendation so if it sucks by an hour and a half don’t get angry with me! It’s your own fault for minding the recommendation of a complete stranger!
My final word is a bit of an interesting tidbit – I own a ring similar to the one in the movie. You’ll know what I mean when you watch.
