'WHERE IS THE 25TH NEGATIVE ?'
on 23 April 2014
Walter Mitty' lives in a world of fantasy always daydreaming of things
he'd like to be doing or saying.
He works for the 'Life' magazine, he develops the pictures for publication,
an instruction to use the 25th negative on a role sent in by 'Sean O'Connell'
however whlist all the negatives appear to be on the photo frame, the 25th
The Magazine executives want the picture, 'Walter's' department is under pressure
to produce the photograph that is to front the cover of 'Life'
It turns out that the Magazine is to go on-line and the picture is to front the
magazines last issue.
With his job under threat along with co-worker 'Cheryl's'( who he'd like to
have the courage to ask out,) 'Walter' decides to finally take control of his
life and decides to go in search of the elusive 'Sean O'Connell'
His journey takes him to Greenland onto Iceland in the search, he seems
to be one-step behind, when returning home, another clue surfaces.
This time he sets off for the 'Himalayas' the adventures he's embarking on
is helping 'Walter' find himself, no longer needing fantasy's to enrich his
'Ben Stiller' both directs and stars in this truly enjoyable movie, the film often
pretty amusing, a bit of feel-good does nobody any harm.
Among the actors involved -'Kirsten Wiig' (Cheryl Melhoff) 'Sean Penn' (Sean
O'Connell) and 'Shirley Maclaine'' as 'Walter's mum.
Good Picture and Sound Quality throughout.
