This film makes me want to jump out my window and run to asia and climb a mountain. It's all about Walters development of the adventurer hidden beneath his painful and slightly depressed mask. He often daydreams and finds that the more exciting his life becomes the less he daydreams as he is living the dream in reality.
The story holds up on all fronts, while here and there it may seem a bit over the top it's far less so than most blockbuster hits out there. It really has the feel of an indie movie, it seems pure and fresh and makes me think about what I could do to live life to it's full potential.
Ben Stiller embodies the character really well and he does a great job of not explaining his emotions yet making them clear and understanding to the viewer. I was taken along on this journey with Walter in the film and that's best thing a film can ever do for it's audience.
The film, in it's most basic form, is showing all of us who sit in front of a screen all day that the world is out there, we don't have to daydream because these misty mountains and light-eradicating volcanoes are out there in the real world for us to see and this film is providing a mere glimpse to us of what we can do and when Walter finally meets Sean it shows how living life to it's fullest and enjoying the journey provides reward, whether in a specific task we wish to accomplish or just by feeling a sense of reward on knowing we have lived life in the best possible way.
So if your going to watch this movie make sure you pack a toothbrush and a passport because by the time the credits role you'll be on your way to the airport to climb a mountain or jump off a helicopter

Watched through the right eyes, this movie is inspiring and thought provoking! Very subtle in its message. Funny in parts and a nice bit of quirkiness.

Its happy and cheerful. the storyline isn't perfect, the acting isn't perfect, but it works, maybe it's even better because it isn't perfect. Either way I really enjoyed it, and you can't help but feel a bit happier after having watched it.

Good film but the poor stuttering streaming from Anazon ruins every Prime Movie I watch. No problems from any other streaming service, iPlayer, Netflix, ITVPlayer and 35whatsits of Infinity Broadband, but terrible Amazon service - I guess it must be my equipment then, it can't be Amazon streaming, because there is no Amazon help service which will admit the possibility.

Ignore the negative reviews of this film, some people just won't get it. We went to watch this film at the cinema and loved it. It has a slow start, but that emphasises how Mitty is living his life before he is forced into a position where he has to live the life he dreamed about when he was young. A good and inspiring film.
