What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, starring and directed by Ben Stiller, may be based on James Thurber's short story, but it's very different from it and the original 1947 movie.

Expect some swearing, including "hell" and "s--t," and some jarring scenes of conflict, though no graphic violence.
