Ben Stiller directed the movie, which he also stars in, which opened on December 25, 2013.

In "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," the title character, portrayed by Ben Stiller, works at LIFE magazine but has done little else with his life except daydream about exciting adventures and romance.

Between a hungry shark as he floats in a cold ocean to an erupting volcano, Walter seeks out the exciting life experiences he was lacking. But there's still one thing he wants in life, the girl. Adam Scott, Sean Penn, Shirley MacLaine, Patton Oswalt and Kathryn Hahn co-star in the film.
