The Secret Life of Walter Mitty


The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
This remake of a 1947 classic has had a troubled path to the screen. The epynomous Walter Mitty lives life through his daydreams, but when his job along with that of his pretty co-worker, (who he has a secret crush on) are threatened, he takes action in the real world embarking on a global journey that turns into an adventure more extraordinary than anything he could have ever imagined.

Tomatometer quote iconIt doesn't lack for ambition, but The Secret Life of Walter Mitty fails to back up its grand designs with enough substance to anchor the spectacle.
