The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty offers a momentary distraction from life's hustle and bustle, but fails to become the kind of life-changing film that will make people jump out of their seats with a whole new personal outlook.
The most universally satisfying Hollywood films are usually predicated on a dialectical relationship... But Walter Mitty is too clumsy and afraid to offend to properly take that journey, not unlike its titular character.
