Performers, Cast and Crew:
Rolling Stone - 09/12/2013
"[C]omic, artful and visionary."
Variety - 10/05/2013
"Stiller plays it mostly earnest....The emotional dimension ultimately makes the film feel more substantial."
Hollywood Reporter - 10/05/2013
"A lyrical comic fable about releasing the exceptional qualities trapped within ordinary people....Audiences willing to tune in to its blend of surreal fantasy, droll comedy and poignancy will be rewarded."
Los Angeles Times - 12/24/2013
"Stiller's sensibility creates a movie that's smarter than you think it will be. Kind of like Walter Mitty himself."

Entertainment Weekly - 01/06/2014
"In the end, WALTER MITTY is a film about acting out our dreams."
Rolling Stone - 12/24/2013
3 stars out of 4 -- "In his uniquely funny and unexpectedly tender movie, Stiller takes us on a personal journey of lingering resonance."
In this comedic adaptation of James Thurber's short story, Ben Stiller stars as Walter, a milquetoast proofreader for a magazine publishing firm. Walter is constitutionally incapable of standing up for himself, so he retreats into his fantasy world, where he is heroic, poised, self-assured, and the master of his fate. Stiller directed from a script by Steven Conrad, with Kristen Wiig, Patton Oswalt, and Shirley MacLaine rounding out the starring cast.
