Only elite runners have a shot of winning, but all 36,000 entrants can dream, can't they? By this Walter Mitty standard, each entrant is more than five times more likely to win the Boston Marathon than to die running it.

Why 'Walter Mitty' Might Not Score An Oscar Nomination

Christopher Rosen | Posted 12.07.2013 | Entertainment

Ben Stiller's "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" is a lot of movie, in a good way. The film contains elements of comedy, fantasy, drama, adventure and romance. It's a coming-of-age movie and a survivalist tale. A pair of sequences even recall "The Bourne Identity" and "Marvel's The Avengers."

'The Secret Like Of Walter Mitty' Is Filled With Earnest Sap

Mike Ryan | Posted 01.23.2014 | Entertainment
Mike Ryan

The Secret Life of Water Mitty, which debuted on Saturday at the New York Film Festival, is for saps. I'm using the word "sap" in the most positive way possible. (And, I'll admit, I am a bit of a sap because I enjoyed The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.) Mitty's greatest asset - its earnestness - may be, at the same time, its greatest detriment, because this is the year 2013 and "earnestness" is not always looked upon as a desirable attribute these days. And, boy isWalter Mitty earnest.
