Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Our identification gives way to envy, and [Mitty] is another one of those enchanted people the rest of us can only dream of becoming. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Dec 24, 2013

Fresh: While stunning sequences show him skateboarding away from an erupting volcano and fighting off a great white shark, the character never becomes more than a fuzzy conceit. – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly, Dec 26, 2013

Fresh: Stiller's sensibility creates a movie that's smarter than you think it will be. Kind of like Walter Mitty himself. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Dec 26, 2013

Rotten: It has little narrative interest and requires that the director latch onto a very specific airy tone of whimsy, lest the whole souffle collapse. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Dec 26, 2013

Well worth getting.

Amazing message

This is an amazing movie with a wonderful message that many people missed..... Go on adventures, but be careful not to miss the beauty AND don't forget to enjoy the daily grind as well.
The colors and scenery are amazing. My daughter and I saw this twice in the theatre and fully plan on buying it. It's funny, cute, adventurous, and a little romantic. Great for all ages!!!
