Top Reasons The Secret Life of Walter Mitty Was Fun

A lot of people would probably not agree with me when I say that The Secret Life of Walter Mitty was fun to watch. I agree with some of the reviews I’ve read. Some parts of it were too cheesy. And at some point it felt like it didn’t quite get into what it was aiming for. But the total package was good. It was fun to watch that it still made me chuckle when I think about the guy’s whimsies. Anyone who can have such crazy fantasies is a fun person in my book.

Shy and quiet people are interesting

When I say shy and quiet, I mean it in a good way. I’m not stereotyping. I’m just saying that some people are just wired to be quietly unassuming. They seem perfectly happy to let others do the talking. And I’m cool with that. But I’ve never really thought about what’s going on in their minds. Walter Mitty is like many others I’ve met in several ways. I’ve grown used to them that I don’t usually try to make small talks. I just let them be. Now I’m curious what kind of stories they all have in their heads. I bet there are a lot of interesting things going on in there.

Fun starts in your head

Walter Mitty’s flights of whimsies show that there’s always fun to be had even just in your head. Sometimes problems can be overwhelming. It’s hard to get past the misery or whatever it is that brings you down. I’ve had my share of those kinds of moments too. I’m not for escaping reality by living in a fantasy world. But I’m all for creating mental escapades that allow me to have fun at least in my mind. That, for me, is a great start to feeling a lot happier.

Ben Stiller does Walter Mitty well

Ben Stiller did justice to the character. Clichés aside, he and his character had me laughing. The daydreams, adventures, and quips were done with so much depth it came out natural. I felt a connection with him. It was like I was the one having those crazy fantasies.

The film was a visual feast

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty was a visual feast. It made his daydreams and “real” adventures mind-blowing. Those visuals during his travels made me want to see those places for real. I think the visuals are among the best things that helped the movie send its message across.

You Don’t Know Funny until You’ve Watched Cats NOT Trying to Be Funny

I don’t even know why I like cats. They can be annoying, demanding, and all kinds of frustrating. Sometimes they even come across as an ungrateful lot. I say this because I’ve done my share of cat-sitting for some friends. I’ve literally felt like a slave to these furry creatures. And yet I loved every moment of it. They can be so effortlessly funny. They have this knack of making me laugh for the most absurd reasons.

They can be mean

Cats can be wickedly mean. I mean, seriously, who’d do that to a helpless kitten? This video makes me wonder what’s exactly going on in their head when they do things like this. And it makes me wonder what all sorts of evil deeds they’re capable of. From where I’m looking the cat that pushed that poor kitty didn’t even display any hint of remorse. Now that’s what I call ruthless.

They have this thing with baths

I know that there are cats out there that actually enjoy bathing or swimming. But I’ve yet to meet one. Most of the ones I’ve seen have this aversion to water. I’ve had scratches on my arms the first time I attempted to put one of my charges in the bath. It was a lesson learned that I’m not eager to repeat.

They can be jerks

How can one be a jerk and adorable at the same time? Ask a cat. They seemed to have mastered the art. They can be supremely arrogant and heartless at times. And they’re not generous in doling out affection. But they sure are fun to be around. I’ve developed a strange fascination for their brand of meanness. They’re clearly the kings and queens of jerks.

And here’s more of them being jerks.

For all their quirks, cat’s are the best at being funny without really trying.

I’ll just leave this one here.
