Walter Mitty is flying to Greenland in a jet. The flight company as seen in the movie is Air Greenland, which flies their only jet plane between Copenhagen (Denmark) and Kangerlussuaq (Greenland). In the movie they land in the capital of Greenland, Nuuk, with what appears to be an Airbus 332 (the only jet Air Greenland has). It would be impossible to land there, because the runway in Nuuk is too short for an Airbus 332 to land. See more »

To see the world. To find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life.
I saw an advanced screening of "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" last night. To the right person, this movie is life-changing, life-affirming, and truly beautiful. No, the narrative isn't perfect. The script isn't perfect. There are narrative flaws and stretches of the imagination, but this movie is about stretching the imagination.
The concept - of an underachieving dreamer finally discovering the world - is something most of us can relate to. Accompanied by a truly beautiful soundtrack, Oscar-worthy camera work, and the surprisingly able acting of Ben Stiller, as well as an accompanying cast which includes Adam Scott, Kirsten Wiig and Sean Penn, among others, this is heart-warming and truly special.
