The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty Reviews

Clayton Davis

Steve Conrad's script is a jumbled farce, misfiring on comedic executions and inserting beats that have no real relevance to the story.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is one charming film to see, and there's nothing wrong with a feel-good movie that makes you feel good about liking it.

Ignore the liberties the film takes with the original (something the 1947 Danny Kaye movie also did, much to Thurber's annoyance), and this version proves to be a briskly entertaining, glossily photographed, globe-trotting romp,

Columbus Alive

A good-natured bit of escapist fluff that relies a bit too much on whiz-bang special effects.

Somehow, out of a no-win situation, Stiller manages to make a likable movie that entertains and also provides a little get-out-of-the-basement inspiration.

Ray Pride

Mitty doodles and dawdles through the world, swept away by momentary bursts of special-effects fantasy while his life is changed by the presence of a cake made by his mother.

Big budget films that are actually about something are so rare this one's worth checking out just for novelty value alone.

A charmer with a good heart and a healthy dose of unrealism.

It still has a good amount of heart to it, particularly from the delightful Wiig who somehow manages to create an interesting and empathetic character out of thin material.

Of course Stiller takes many liberties with Thurber's old chestnut, but there is a sense that its theme of yearning really means something to him.

Daily Herald (IL)

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is a disappointment, an often confusing and silly contrivance of an unbecoming-of-age comedy based on Thurber's literary work (adapted into a 1947 vehicle for star Danny Kaye.)

Walter Mitty has a big heart, and I like it for that. But this is definitely a case where a little simpler would have been a lot better overall.

The remake is straightforward, with fewer secrets, more sentiment and it isn't as funny

'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty' is not the old James Thurber short story brought to the big screen. It's important to make that clear.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is a Mood Indigo for the masses, a sort of cinematic gateway drug that plays around with art film concepts for audiences who don't necessarily want to watch an art film.

Iceland deserves an apology: The utter phoniness here is disrespectful to the natural splendor of that island nation's locations, which provide the film with its only moments of distinction.
