I saw the film this week and enjoyed it. It's a bit overlong for the twee story it's telling and reminded me (don't know why) a bit of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Benjamin Button (which it jokingly referenced/parodied). It was a nice film and passed the time pleasantly enough. The music was okay, but a bit formless and all over the place, obviously acting as connective tissue to the many anthemic songs that played throughout the film. Don't think I'd buy the CD but a few tracks from each album (score and song) wouldn't go amiss.
I don't remember that scene on the score cover above ??
I'm really loving the score. We enjoyed the film quite a bit. It should speak to a lot of people who feel trapped in a corporate environment and want to live a little. The rich colors of the score perfectly support and elevate the fantasies of Walter Mitty. And the love theme is beautiful. Teddy Shapiro has a great musical personality. Marley & Me still stands as one of my favorites in the past 5 years.
