I haven’t gotten to go to the theatre too much since my daughter was born. I just don’t want to be that person. However over the holidays I was able to leave her with family while my husband and I went out. One of the movies we saw was The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Since I’d seen the preview I wanted to watch this, it was like a movie about what goes on in my brain. Only there were more explosions in the movie and less death. My husband wasn’t as enthusiastic but since I went to see a movie he wanted to see he went to this one as well.

Wow. I was not expecting to like this movie so much and neither was my husband. We both said, when leaving, that it was a must buy when it comes out. I will say I half expected the movie to be one of his fantasies and when I realized halfway through that it wasn’t I was happy and maybe a little bit jealous. I wish I could jump on a plane and just go somewhere, but there’s more than just my baby that’s holding me back on that one. Stupid money. Oh well, it was an awesome movie and I really wish more people had been as excited to see it as I was.



  1. I liked the online dating parts because you were able to see the contrast in how he was changing. Plus Patton Oswalt is always fun. Honestly it’s hard to pick a favorite part because I enjoyed the movie so much
