I saw this one back in 2014.

The plot begins with the rather lame life of Walter Mitty. Walter has a crush on a lady that works in the same building but lacking the courage to do anything about it. They both work for a magazine that is seeing their last paper issue. They get closer as Walter needs to find a photo that was lost from a highly regarded photojournalist Sean O’Connell .

However O’Connell is a tough man to find as he doesn’t even use a telephone and is often in the most basic places on Earth. Without much choice and little time, Walter travels to Greenland to find him, but his journey does not end in the Western Hemisphere.

Overall Walter Mitty was a much better film than I expected. His vivid day-dreams were kinda dumb, but I thought the final half of the story was very well-done. While it has some funny parts, it isn’t much of a comedy but rather a romantic-drama. Glad to see Ben Stiller do really well in something that isn’t a goofy comedy.
