The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
I'm not a huge fan of Ben Stiller as he seems to be one of those actors that doesn't disappear into a role for me, but always seems to be himself, just in a different setting, a bit like Adam Sandler and many others of the manboy genre. I did enjoy his character here, the everyman invisible worker, going about his life in a beige world, never having any adventures. Of course that is all about to change, in a novel and fun way.
Not a must rush to the movies to go and see it, but it was good enough to say it is worth a look if you are all rained out, or sick of wizards and car chases. 4/5
