Different.
Interesting.
A little slow, sometimes.

I thought this movie wasn't bad at all! Good cast!

Entertaining. Stiller and the beautiful Wiig are well cast, and do a great job. The scenes in Iceland (which stands in for both Greenland and the Himalayas, as well) are beautiful. Do watch how they did the skateboarding scene, with Stiller's double, in the bonus features.

I truly loved the soundtrack. The songs fit perfectly with the scenes throughout. Although I liked Ben Stiller in a serious role, I kept finding it weird to be taking him seriously! Slightly distracting. Even still, a beautiful story with many beautiful scenes - definitely made me want to travel. Overall, slightly boring at times so that's why it gets 4 stars, but truly was a movie that everyone can appreciate! (Rated PG so even kids can enjoy this one!)

The original short story is a classic tale of a hen-pecked husband with an over-active imagination. The original film portrayed a hopeless dreamer accidentally thrust into action. In this remake, Walter is capable but quiet and unremarkable until forced outside his comfort zone. All three are recommended but vary in message and I was hoping this would be closer to its predecessor.

I loved the original, and I enjoyed this! Loved the soundtrack. Surprisingly I liked Ben Stiller in this, a more serious role. It's definitely a different take on the story, but still has the gist of it: man unsatisfied with own life, has fantasies of living more adventurously. If you're an absolute stickler to originals, this isn't for you. But if you have an open mind and can enjoy a modernized adaption, give this a try.

Cheryl: I wanted to tell you, that song "Major Tom" and that beard guy... he doesn't know what he's talking about. That song is about courage and going into the unknown. It's a cool song.
