Ben Stiller fantasizes about being a better film director in this adaptation of James Thurber’s beloved short story, “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”. Stiller himself plays the titular role of a dreamer who is forced to live real life when his job comes into jeopardy, but fortunately he has the help of his co-worker and fantasy girl, played by Kristen Wiig.
As his quest leads him ever closer to the mysterious and reclusive photojournalist, played by Sean Penn, the Unusual Suspects come ever closer to yawning. Some of them, anyway.
Check out Martin, Chris and JC as they discuss the whys and wherefores of Mitty’s mind.
